Lions - Y6

A welcome from the Lions

A very warm welcome to the Lions' home page. Mrs.Broughton is the Lions' class teacher and she has the support of the teaching assistant, Mrs. Southwick. You will be able to see Mrs.Broughton out on the playground every morning from 8.40am if you have any questions or messages.

Our P.E. sessions this term will Wednesday afternoon. However, we will have P.E. at other times so it is essential that the children have P.E. kit in school from Monday through to Friday. P.E.kit for the autumn term should be shorts-black and a white Tee shirt until the weather turns cold and then the children will be allowed to wear jogging trousers and their hooded top. A change of shoes is essential for P.E. lessons. Trainers or sandshoes are fine for all P.E. lessons.

Reading is an important part of our school curriculum, so please make sure that your child's book bag and home reading book are in school every day. Please sign and date if you have heard your child read at home as we like to ensure all our pupils are reading regularly at home and changing books on a weekly basis. Children still working through the school reading scheme will be encouraged to read more frequently and are expected to change their books sveral times during the week. The home -school diary needs to be in school every Monday morning so I can add my support to their efforts so please remind your child to bring it. Every day is best.

Theme this term -Extreme Earth

In Lions our theme this term is based all around the extreme weather conditions that occur on our Earth. This will involve looking closely at what happens on our planet and then delving deeper to see what lies below. We will be looking specifically at the many weather conditions that can impact on the countries around the world. We will follow the storms and become 'storm chasers' which will help us with our creative writing.

Later in this term we will look forward to inviting parents and carers in to join us on our inspire afternoon, during which we will undertake scientific investigations to look at the impact of earthquakes on buildings. Also during this event we will have a go at making our own working volcano. Watch out for the eruption.

Our Design and Technology for this theme will involve the children looking at a range of electrical circuits and questioning what other forms of power can be used to generate electricity - linking well with the extreme weather elements, developing further the children's understanding that this natural power can be used in a beneficial manner.
