De Porres Class

We are a Year 6 class and the adults working with us are Mrs Tilling, Mrs West and Mrs Caiger. 


26th March 2021

Year 6 continue to work very hard. They have settled back into school routines and are striding ahead! They have written superb discussion texts based on the opening chapters of 'Floodland' and they have written with such conviction and maturity They should be really proud of the achievements. They have worked hard in Maths, revisting some of the trickier calculations, as well as getting to grips with ratio and proportion. In Science, they have learned about how the heart works and the circulation system and in Geography, they continue to find out about growing populations across the world and the challenges they bring in terms of living conditions and pollution. In RE, they are learning about the events of Holy Week, as well as taking their part in the school Stations of the Cross that os being shared each day. There was much enjoyment towards the end of the week as the children made banners to take with them on the ' Walk for Water' which will take place next Tuesday. There is lots to look forward to next week! As well as our walk, we will have a pyjama day and a movie afternoon next Wednesday which will help us to get in the mood for the Easter break! 


10th March 2021

Welcome back everyone! It is wonderful to have you all back in the classroom again. We have a busy few weeks ahead of us before the Easter break, but I know that the chidlren in Year 6 are ready to rise to the challenge and will continue to work as hard as they did throughtout the lockdown period. 

For the next two weeks, we will be tackling ratio and proportion in Mathematics and then we will spend time revising the topics that we have covered so far,  before we start Geometry after the Easter break. In Literacy, we are enjoying our class text ' Floodland' and are busy writing a  discussion text, before we write a diary entry based on the experiences of a character in the novel. In Science, we are learning about the body's circulation system and we will find out how the heart and lungs work and how important it is to stay healthy in order that they work well. We will also learn about medicines and drugs and the important difference between those that keep us well, and those that can harm us. Our Geography work this term will help us to understand population distribution around the world and which factors cause natural increases and decreases in population levels. We will identify those countries that are densely populated and we will consider what can be done to ensure populations  have access to food and health resources. In RE, we mark the season of Lent and we are focussing on Jesus' teachings on prayer, fasting and almsgiving. We are finding out that fasting can involve giving up the actions and behaviours that make others unhappy. We will focus on adopting  actions that put others before ourselves. Later in the term, we will undertake a sponsored walk that will support the CAFOD ' Walk for Water' campaign. We will help to prepare a Stations of the Cross service that will be shared with the rest of the school.

I will start setting homework again this week and the resources can be found below in the homework section.
