Curriculum Information PowerPoint - Autumn 2021
As promised in the St Lawrence Post, we are now pleased to send you a link to our St Lawrence YouTube channel where you can access the Curriculum Information Presentation for your child's year group.
The Curriculum Information Presentation will be followed by a 'Get to Know You' live video session with your child's class teacher during the week beginning 18th October. Apologies that this date is slightly later than originally stated, but we need the extra time to resolve some minor technical difficulties. This is your opportunity to have an informal chat with the teacher in a group video link, as well as being able to ask questions arising from the Curriculum Information presentation. We ask that any questions are emailed to the class teacher direct, in advance of the 'Get to Know You' session: email@example.com
Year 6 Class Update
We have enjoyed a busy few weeks.
In maths, we are now identifying and using common multiples and factors. We continue to work on essential maths fluency and practising doubling, halving, number bonds to one hundred and times tables at home and during half term will be invaluable.
In English, we have edited, improved and published our non-fiction writing about Mexico, incorporating cohesive devices to engage the reader further. We are learning to support answers to questions about a text with more than one example and have performed and memorised poems. We have identified and searched for root words and suffixes.
We made some delicious apple scones as well as beautiful Frida Kahlo sketches, upon which we are basing paintings, mixing primary colours. We have started our modroc Aztec masks.
We are learning about ways to keep healthy, including the impact of diet and exercise and look forward to Bikeability next week!
We have researched the impact of food miles and global distribution, linking this to the Global Goals, culminating in thoughtful wishes for our harvest assembly.
Please continue to read with the children at home on a daily basis and discuss new and effective vocabulary.
With best wishes
Mrs Dowsett, Mrs Lowes and Mrs Johnson
