Welcome to the Lions class webpage.
We have an action packed term ahead of us. This term our project will based around the Romans. We will be focussing on where Rome is, when it was founded, how it was run and what life was life for different members of society. After half term, we will be looking at the expansion of the Roman Empire and how life in Britain was affected. Our Science work will see the children developing their understanding of electricity and circuits, along with applying their knowledge of scientific understanding. We shall also be creating mosaics and a trebuchet.
Developing writing across the curriculum is a key part of Year 6, so we will be continue to take many opportunities to write in different styles. Reading is key to developing both reading and writing skills, so we would be grateful if you could encourage your child to read at home as regularly as possible. Your child is familiar with our online reading resource, Scholastic Reading Pro, and this is a great way for them to assess their comprehension of the text they are reading. It has been wonderful to see the lexile levels improving. If you require a new username or password, please speak to a member of staff.

Maths and English homework will be given out on a Friday. Both pieces of homework should be returned by the following Wednesday – your child can bring them in earlier if they wish. If you find your child is struggling with something, please encourage them to speak to an adult. We are always happy to help!
PE kits should be in school all week as we will endeavour to participate in as much activity as possible. Our PPA session is on a Friday so the children must have their full PE in school. We aim to be outdoors when the weather allows.
We have a class twitter page @lionsclass. Please follow us and comment on our learning. We regularly update the page with things we have been learning about.
As always, if you have any questions about our learning or anything taking place in school, please contact a member of Lions.
