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.
Just a reminder that year 6 will be sitting their SATs tests on the Monday 14th May til Thursday 17th May. The children are working incredibly hard and making brilliant progress. Boosters will continue up until the week before SATs.
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 up the hard work!
We are really looking forward to our trip to see War Horse at the Theatre Royal on the 15th March. We have already seen the film and are listening to the book every day. I am looking forward to reading the final pieces of work the children will be writing in the next two weeks.
Topic - Evolution and Inheritance
Our topic this term is called Evolution and Inheritance. The class will be learning about fossils and researching a famous fossil hunter called Mary Anning. They will also be learning how living things adapt to their environment and how Charles Darwin developed his theory of evolution.
Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school as there are a number of children not bringing in their kits. PE is on a Tuesday and Thursday.
