Welcome to the Year 6 class webpage – we are Brazil Class.
Mr Webb and Miss Duncan will be supporting us with our learning this year and we will all be working hard to improve our learning.
In Brazil Class, we want everyone to feel safe and happy. We support each other with our learning and encourage each other to have a go. We celebrate each other’s differences and work together to make sure that everyone feels a valued member of our class and our school community.
Our Autumn term topics are:
Term 1 – Rainforests
Term 2 – Ancient Greeks
During the first 2 weeks of Term 1 we will be exploring different features about our class country, Brazil. As part of this, we will be introduced to learning about the Amazon. This leads us nicely into our first topic of Rainforests.
Through this topic, we will be exploring the location of different rainforests around the world. We will be learning about the features of rainforest and what we might find in a rainforest. As we progress through the topic, we will be discussing the importance of rainforests and subsequent issues of deforestation.
During this topic we will compare different aspects of the Ancient Greeks lives to ours today. We will be learning about and comparing the different city states of Ancient Greece and exploring what life would have been like in those times. We will look at the role of the Ancient Greeks on democracy and look at the birth of the Olympics. As part of our literacy, we will be exploring famous Greek myths and having a go at writing our own.
PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays. Please make sure that your child has an indoor and outdoor PE kit in school (including pumps).
Homework will be handed out each Friday and will be collected the following Wednesday. Your child will also receive weekly spellings that will be tested on a Friday. Please ensure that you do all you can to support your child in completing and returning their homework on time.
In Brazil Class we use an app called Seesaw which allows the adults to share photos, videos and notes about your child’s daily learning. All you need to do is download the free app and scan the letter your child will bring home. If you have any trouble accessing this then please let us know and we will do what we can to resolve the issues.
When I can, I like to join the children on the yard at the end of the school day. I see this as a great opportunity to chat to you as their parents and to let you know about all of the great things your children have been doing that day. Please come along and introduce yourselves and ask any questions that you may have.
