Welcome to the Year 6 - Wolf page
Welcome to Wolf's new class page.
Today we have had a brilliant day. Sunita Patel has visited us again to give the children an Indian Experience day. This morning they took part in a variety of Indian dances and learned about Hindu gods and worship.. This afternoon, Wolf have been creating amazing Rangoli patterns and discussed stereotypes that still exist around India and modern India. Thank you Sunita for another brilliant learning experience.
Please find below the timetable for parent's evening appointments this week. Homework is also below - 2011 Maths Paper A and B.
This term, our topic has been Frozen Kingdoms. As part of this, we have been researching about the Arctic and Antarctica and tried to imagine what it would have been like enduring and surviving the Titanic disaster. The children have produced some stunning work, particularly their pastel drawings of icebergs, glaciers and fjords.
Later on in the term, Sunita Patel will be visiting us for an Indian Experience Day. This will support our R.E. work on Hinduism that we will be starting soon. Over the past 5 years that Sunita has visited St Mary's, this has been a superb day that many children say is the best experience that they have had at school.
The children now have a login for www.spag.com which will form part of their work at school but they will also have work to do for homework related to this.
We hope that you will be able to come here to find information about your child's experiences at St Mary's this year. Homework will now be posted on here as well as useful links for your child to use to aid their learning.
This term, we have been experiencing some brilliant things. Our trip to Beaumanor Hall sparked off the year in an inspirational way, as the evacuees were put through their paces. Our World War 2 topic really inspired the children - the work that they produced was amazing. Following on from that, they have been finding out about life in World War 1. We were all moved by their emotional assembly on November 11th.
For the remainder of the half term, Wolf have been finding out about the heart and how to keep it healthy. This was not for the squeamish!
