Welcome back to Coppice! We are really happy to welcome back the children into their new classes. We hope that we can count on your support to encourage them to work at home, as well as at school, towards their new learning. The children will be engaging in a varied curriculum, focusing on the history of chocolate, the circulation of the heart and the civilisation of the Maya. Below you will be able to read the jigsaw provided to give you a better idea of the topics ahead.
From now on homework will be online through google classroom. Below is the homework grid for both Autumn 1 and 2. Mangahigh will be set every week along with TT Rockstars. Weekly spelling sheets will still go out and reading records are to be signed weekly.
Battle of the Beaks! Testing Darwin's theory of the Survival of the Fittest
In Autumn 2, Year 6 have been focusing on studying the Circulatory System and have focused on the heart. This complex unit will be carried on in the January 2021. Along with this, they have been studying the Maya civilisation in depth and have studied the Christmas classic 'A Christmas Carol' by Charles Dickens. They have written a persuasive letter to Mr.Scrooge, pleading him to be more generous towards his clerk, Bob Cratchit, and are currently starting to a 'missing' chapter for 'A Christmas Carol' where they will be fabricating a backstory for Scrooge's childhood.
Autumn 2 - Mayan Pyramids and Lamb Hearts
Sam from 6S discussing detail and his technique, on how to make a paper pyramid. Although Sam had some assistance from his Father all the colouring in was his own handy work. Well done Sam.
Y6S took full advantage of No Pens Day and conducted their Maths lesson outside.
We are the class to call if you need us to measure the perimeter of your playground!
Have you ever seen a prouder face?! Dameon showing his plasticine model of the human heart. Another fun 'No Pens Day' activity. We really enjoyed our Science lesson on that day!
