Welcome to the 6KF class page!

Our community

We cannot believe it is the summer term already! 6KF have hit the ground running since returning from our Easter holidays and we are feeling more confident than ever as the SATS are approaching. We are sticking with our great leadership and taking control of our own learning!  

We have LOTS of fun things to look forward to this term: Kaleidoscope, class celebrations, our performance, transition weeks...there is so much going on! 

Our teachers have given us our first clue as to who we will be studying during Kaleidoscope this year. See if you can have a guess and keep a look out for clue number two!

CLUE ONE: THEY WERE BORN IN 1946.

Summer Term 2017

  Spring Literacy

In Literacy this term we will be looking at non-chronological reports and working on our editing skills. We have worked really hard to apply our learning to our writing - now we need to become detectives and editors so that our final pieces of work are accurate.

We will be using our Kaleidoscope topic and another science-based topic to help stimulate our writing too.

Running alongside our writing will be our spellings, grammar and punctuation work.

Summer Maths

This term we will be focussing on shape, angles, coordinates, time and ratios aswell as recapping on some number and reasoning approaches. 

Science

This term we will be learning  about the human body. Here is some of what we will be looking at:

•  the main parts of the human circulatory system, and the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood

•  nutrients and water within animals, including humans.

•  living things, fossils, living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago

•  offspring

•  the different ways that adaptation may lead to evolution.

Homework

Each week we will send a piece of Literacy and Numeracy which will link with that week's learning.

 

Our Class Text and reading text

Our class text

Our class text this term is the brilliant ‘Kensuke's Kingdom' by Micheal Morpurgo. We're excited to dive into this book - our only problem is we're not sure we'll be able to put it down! Here's a taster...

"I heard the wind above me in the sails. I remember thinking, this is silly, you haven't got your safety harness on, you haven't got your life jacket on. You shouldn't be doing this.....I was in the cold of the sea before I could even open my mouth to scream"Our reading journey text

The text that we are using for our reading journey is 'Pig Heart Boy' by Malorie Blackman. This is a fantastic book about the challenges one thirteen-year-old faces.

Each child has their own copy to bring home and use in school - see how much they can tell you about Cameron and his situation.

So far we are GRIPPED!
