WELCOME TO CLASS 6S

6S Team Members:

Miss Stalker - Class Teacher 

Ms Thomas - Support Assistant 
Mrs Shaw - Teaching Assistant 

 

Welcome back!! I can't believe it is the second half of the Autumn term already - we had an extremely successful first half term and we loved learning about World War 2. 

 

This half term, we are going to continue to develop our history skills but this time through the topic of 

the Ancient Greeks and we can't wait!

Throughout the term, we will be using our historical enquiry skills to investigate evidence from the Ancient Greek period  and we will be communicating our findings historically to help us understand how the Greeks influenced the modern western world and how life, civilisations and political status compares to other periods of history and our own lives. 

In English, we will be writing information texts about the Ancient Greek Olympics with a focus on applying a conscious control over formality, cohesion and advanced punctuation. 

Later on in ther term, the children will be writing their own Greek myth after learning about Greek gods/goddesses and mythical creatures - they are already excited about this writing! 

 

We will become creative this half term and we will be making our own Greek vase, which depicts life in Ancient Greece, bringing together everything they have discovered during their enquiry sessions. 

 

Keep an eye out for pictures, videos and information about everything we have been doing throughout the term.

At Torrisholme, we are continuously striving to develop ways to encourage our children to read for pleasure. We have created a ‘HOT BOOKS’ list of 30 up-to-date, age-appropriate texts, compiled from a range of suggested reading lists. This is not an exhaustive list of fabulous year group appropriate books but is more a fun challenge list for our children to explore texts written in a wide range of styles by a selection of current and popular children’s authors.

 

How many can your child read?

 

On your marks…

          get set…

                                and READ!

Here we are fully engrossed in our research of the modern Olympics in preparation for writing a non-chronological report. As we have already learned and written about the Ancient Greek Olympics, we are using our research to help us understand continuity and change to compare the modern Olympics to the ancient Olympics.

We were hooked into our new topic (Ancient Greece) this week. We were presented with sources of evidence which we had to use and develop our enquiry skills by investigating what the images depicted and think about what this taught us about the Ancient Greeks and the Ancient Greece olympics

Musical Madness!

In year 6, we have been learning by heart a famous song sang to the troops during the war. We have also been considering the musical terms we use describing and investigating songs. So far, we have identified the pulse and rhythm within songs whilst going wild with drumsticks! Take a look...
