Things to Remember

PE is every Tuesday and Friday. Please remember to bring in your outdoor PE kit.

Homework is set every Thursday and is due in on the following Tuesday.

Spellings are handed out every Monday and are tested the following Monday.

Try and read to an adult at least once a week. Don't forget to get a grown up to write in your homework diary.

This half term our topic will focus on our year 6 residential trip to Saundersfoot. In the lead up to our trip, in Geography and linking with our topic, we will be comparing the human and physical characteristics of Writtle and Wales. We will learn about how cliffs are formed as well as how a coastline can be eroded over time. We will also revise our mapping skills by looking at how we navigate with a compass and how we use grid references. 

In science we will be learning about evolution and how animals have adapted to suit their environment. As we look at Darwin, we will read about his discoveries of how birds have adapted over time and how the same species can adapt differently to suit their enviroment. In Saundersfoot we will make our own observations of birds and compare the different species that live there compared with here.

Linking with our science focus and trip to Saundersfoot, In Art we will be making observation drawings and learning how to show perspective in our work. In addition to this we will be exploring different painting techniques and paint some of the birds that we have discussed in our Science lessons.
