Welcome to Juniper Class
Welcome to Year 6 Juniper class! Hope you have had a llovely Christmas break. 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 Climagte change and the rainforests. In our topic sessions we are going to be looking at what climate change is, what the effects of climate change are and what we can do to prevent it. We will use our geographical knowledge to identify how global warming is affecting different parts of the globe and identifying these on a map. We will also be holding our own conference about climate change explaining to parents what we can do to slow down global warming. Click here to see our topic web.
In English we are looking at the book Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick. The children will be writing diary entries, completing letters, writing explanation extracts, writing poetry and ending with a story looking at the book from a different perspective. The grammatical features we will explore are: hyphens, parenthesis, tenses and colons.
In maths we will be looking at fractions and percentages. The children will be focusing on comparing, ordering, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions. They will then look at percentages and how we find percentages of a number.
