Welcome to our Year 6 page! In Snapdragons we have the class teacher Miss Mossie with Mrs Gilbert-Gallagher. In Fucshias we have the class teacher Miss Auger with Mr Stokes. In year 6, it is important that we all try our hardest, come to school with positive attitudes towards learning and have lots of fun too of course!
For homework this year at River View, we are working on collecting our DYNAMITE DOLLARS by completing activities at home over a half term. These activities will help towards our writing, maths and curriculum learning. They will be focused around our current topic for the term.
This term our topic title is 'Greece Lightning!' We will be exploring the Ancient Greeks: how they lived, locating modern day Greece, who the Greek Gods were and looking at the every day objects they used. We will be creating our own clay pots and mythical creatures.
During our science lessons this term, we are going to use circuit components and we will be looking at the circulatory system too.
Our topic this Autumn is 'Yes Minister'. We will be having art, citizenship and history lessons to learn about voting, parliament, the suffragettes and the Gun Powder Plot. We are very excited to venture to London and visit the Houses of Parliament!
Science this term is 'light'. We will be learning about how we see light, exploring shadows and we may even make our own periscopes!
We show fantastic behaviour at River View by following our Good to be Green system. If we remain on 'green' for the half term, we get rewarded with a celebration! Keep your eyes out on our webpage for photos of our rewards.
Autumn 1 GTBG
Today we became forensic scientists! Take a look at us catching a criminal.
We have PE with Burton Albion on a Monday morning. Please ensure children are sent to school with their full PE kit, with appropriate foot wear for the activity they will be taking part in. If your child cannot do PE for any reason, a letter must be sent to the class teacher.
