Year 6 have had a great start to the year. They have took on new roles with great responsibilty. The children have have loved spending time with their buddies both playing in class and spending a play time with them. 

This page will be updated throughout the year but, as ever, if you have any questions or worries please do not hesitate to speak to me at the start of the day or contact school.

Spellings

Our spellings will be following on from last year and will be tested every two weeks. As well as learning the spellings I give the children, I would also like them to find several of their own using the spellings rule/pattern. I will attach a copy of the spelling below every 2 weeks.

Wonderful News from Autumn 1

In English the children have enjoyed learning about World War 2. We have explored a book called Rose Blanche, writing a diary entry and then we read about Anne Frank and wrote a bravery award speech. 

In History, we have learnt about the Vikings, where they invaded and how Lindisfarne was raided by the Vikings.

In Science, we have began to learn about Evolution and adaptation, thinking about traits we have and how they are genetic or environmental. We also learnt how animals adapt to their surrounding, exploring the Galapagos Iguanas and the famous Scientist Charles Darwin.

In Music the children enjoyed listening, singing and composing notes on the glockenspiel. 

This half term we have been working hard in Art. We mixed colours to recreate the Japenese Footbridge by Monet and we learnt how to create Zentangle patterns.

The Way, The Truth and The Life

At St Clement's we follow 'The Way the Truth, The Life' scheme in RE. The children cover a different topic each term as shown below.

Autumn 1 - The Kingdom of God

The topic is designed to allow children to explore what and where the Kingdom of God is, exploring parables and miracles of Jesus. We will also look at ways in which people responds to Jesus’ invitation to belong to his Kingdom.

Autumn 2 - Justice 

This topic is designed to teach the children what justice is and know that they are call to work for justice in the world. They will explore this through completing work on the prophet Elijah and John the Baptist as well as more modern day Christians like Oscar Romero. The children will also explore the meaning of Advent and what is associated with Advent and Christmas.
