Welcome to Juniper Class
Welcome to Year 6 Juniper class! Hope you have all had an amazing summer holidays and are ready for a wonderful Year 6 at Glenfrome. Miss Brook teaches Juniper class, along with our TA Miss Maines. Year 6 is an exciting year, full of opportunities and chances to shine. We will be learning a huge amount this year, and have some interesting topics to cover.
This term we are looking at the Mayans, specifically comparing Ancient Mayan life to modern living. To help us compare, we will be using our Geographical knowledge to identify Geographical features of the Ancient Mayan area (Mesoamerica), developing our Design and Technology skills by creating our own moving vehicles. Throughout our theme, we will be focusing on our history enquiry skills to answer any questions we may discover. Click here to see our topic web.
In English we are looking at the book Middleworld: Jaguar Stones, to write stories with a historical theme, specifically linked to our topic of the Mayans. We will be focusing on grammatical features including complex sentences using subordinate conjunctions, expanded noun phrases to convey information conciselt and the use of adverbials to start sentences. Punctuation focuses will be inlcuidng inverted commas for speech, colons and semi colons, and the difference between hyphens and dashes.
In maths we are going to focus on place value, looking at rounding and negative numbers. We will then focus on the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. These will also include decimals and a variety of word problems.
