Welcome to the Lions class webpage.
We have had a superb year so far; how quickly it seems to be going. We are now into the Summer Term and have many fabulous activities to be looking forward to.
Our project this term is ‘Our changing world’. We will be focusing upon our local environment initially, thinking about what impact we can have on issues that may concern our families and us. We will begin to learn about the coasts and environmental issues associated with this area. Our Science topic is ‘Evolution and Inheritance’; the children will be learning about Charles Darwin and his theories. We encourage the children to continue their learning at home; should they wish to carry out research or produce some work we have a display board in the classroom on which they can display their work for others to see.
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. Mrs Bensley is always happy to help!
Term 5 is always a busy one during Year 6. We have SATs the week commencing Monday 14th May. We are running breakfast clubs on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings should your child feel that they would like some support to go over areas where they are not feeling as confident. There are lots of staff to support, along with a supply of toast and juice. Please look out for more information on SATs in the coming weeks.
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.
