Welcome to Wheal Dream and Y6.
Our theme this term is The Land of the Rising Sun, as the children were really interested in technology, inventions and wanted to learn all about a new and exciting country. Japan ticked all the boxes! Our English learning will be themed around this, and our class novel, Kensuke's Kingdom, as much as possible.
In maths we will continue to work through our revision programme. Please keep on learning times tables at home, as they really are the key to speedy maths calculations.
Please see our overview below to find out what else we will be learning this half term.
Homework from now will be our revision books - children will be bringing them home at the start of this half term with a schedule of pages and dates when they will be checked in school. Please encourage your child to complete the books independently - if they cannot complete a task it just means we need to focus on it in lesson time a little bit more. They will also bring home a study guide for maths and grammar - please remind them to use them as the explanations are all in there!
A massive thank you to Miss Goldsworthy at St Ives School for giving up her free time to help us make Japanese pancakes this week. It was amazing to be able to use the facilities and meant each Y6 child was able to use a hob, and to wash up! We loved it!
