Year 6

Class 6

Year 2021-22

Due to new covid expectations I have advised that all pupils in class should bring or wear extra layers for the forseeable future as the weather is getting colder and windows and doors still need to remain open for ventilation.



The following is a brief list of things that the pupils will need to know this year.

PE outside on Wednesday.

PE outside on Thursday.

Spellings will be given on Friday and tested the following Friday.

Homework will be posted on Fridays. This will usually involve some form of reading, maths and on occasions a writing activity.

Also, there will be additional help posted during the week in the form of websites to visit for areas covered that pupils might want to consolidate or reassure themselves with.

8.11.21 Austerfield Trip

We travelled to Austerfield today to support our science work about adaptation and habitats.

First, we identified different habitats and sorted animals to where we thought they lived. We discussed why they were suited and how they had adapted to their habitats. 

Then we walked around the reserve, finding footprints of various animals, fur, and other signs of what creatures might live there. We turned logs to find mini beasts and looked in trees for nests. The reserve has different habitats, evergreen woods, deciduous woods, ponds, sandy areas and grassland.

Following this we went into the animal house to get hands on with some real life creatures. These included giant millipedes, toads, cockroaches, stick insects, and snakes. The pupils really enjoyed the visit and learned alot.

Thank you to all staff involved , both at the centre and at school.
