Y6 East Barnby Residential 9-13 October 2017
Welcome to the Year 6 page!
Half term already! It has been another busy week in year 6 with much of our learning being based around how to use social media safely. We have looked at different social media sites, thinking about what is in their user agreements and what their minimum age is. We have thought about the pros and cons of using these sites and thought carefully about how we can stay safe online and treat people with kindness and respect. The children's sensible, mature attitude towards this important issue has really impressed us, and we hope they will remember the messages they have heard, when they use social media now and in the future.
After half term, we will continue to prepare for the SATS, whilst also continuing our work on the Romans. Our science learning will be looking at plants and animals; we will be describing how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences. In geography and English we will be investigating the events at Pompei, and creating some fabulous descriptive writing imagining we were there when the volcano erupted.
Homework for half term has been sent home today and can be found below. Don't forget, children will be tested on their Spelling Bee spellings on the first day back after half term, so please remind your child to keep practising!
Have a lovely half term.
