Welcome to Willow Class, Year 6.
My name is Mr. Ainarkar and I am the Class Teacher.
Willow Class is supported by our wonderful TA, Mrs. Bridge.
Mrs. Gagg, our Deputy Headteacher, also teaches in Willow Class too.
During the Spring Term, we will continue where we left off with completing our work on Measure. This will include work on Area, Perimeter, Converting units of measure and then we will move on to some Algebra!
We will then move on to working on Co-ordinates, 2D/3D shapes, Translation and Reflection.
Alongside all this work we will also be revising our previous learning and working hard to stay on top of our revision.
In English, we will begin the Spring Term with our unit of work on Classic Narrative Poetry. We have studied some fantastic poems so far. These include the famous 'Albert and the Lion' and 'Albert's Return' by Marriott Edgar. The children have loved learning about the Lancashire dialect and using context to define this unfamiliar vocabulary.
The children have also studied the classic poem, 'Leisure' by W. H. Davies:
Once we have completed our poetry work we will be moving on to writing our own Information Texts and learning more about this particular genre of writing.
Our topic for this term is titled 'That's Life'.
Through our ‘That’s Life Episode 1’ theme which is based around life processes, with a key focus on science.
It begins by looking at the changes that take place as humans develop to old age, recognising the impact of diet, exercise etc on the way our bodies function. We even had a special guest join us for Question/Answer session about babies; our very own Mrs. Gorji and the beautiful Umar Farooq:
Pupils will also learn about the human circulatory system and the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood.
Finally, they will learn about the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals, including humans.
