Welcome to Year 6 - Bridgetower
Welcome to Bridgetower class. Our class has been named after the famous violinist George Bridgetower, who was born in 1778 in Poland. He lived most of his life in England, performing around fifty concerts in London.
Autumn 2 Around the World
Our topic this term is all about exploring the world through atlases and maps to locate countries and describe their features. The children will be learning about the lines of longitude and latitude and time zones across the world. We will focus on key aspects of climate zones, biomes and vegetation belts. They will also learn about the delicate interdependent nature of ecosystems and how climate change impacts on this.
The children are given homework every Friday and it needs to be back in the following Thursday. It is really important that the children complete their homework as it is linked to the work we are doing in class and further embeds their understanding. I have put a link on the side bar to a website called Maths is Fun, which has a really clear explanation of the task set this week.
Spellings are tested every Monday. Well done to the children whose scores are going up every week! Keep practising.
Year 6 become famous!
As part of last term's topic on Nottingham, Year 6 were given the opportunity to write articles or draw pictures about famous Nottingham landmarks, for a Nottinghamshire magazine called Nottinghamshire Aspect. They worked incredibly hard and were given a fantastic four page spread in the magazine, which looks amazing. The magazine is out now and the children will all be given their own copy which they can keep as a reminder of their hard work.
