Welcome to WOLVES
Welcome to Wolves class page, we hope that your Year 6 journey will be fantastic.
Welcome back to this new school year. This year is certainly going to prove a little different to previous years but we are sure that it will still prove to be a great year, especially after a confusing time. I know that when the children were in Year 5, there was genuine excitement for those that came back for those final few weeks. Although the summer break probably did not offer what it usually does for many of us, it still has afforded us the recharge needed. Please bring back the sun and summer temperatures!
Although we see a few very changes in the way we deliver our curriculum, Wolves will still be undertaking a wide and ranging curriculum. We start the new term in English with developing our understanding and techniques of both reading for meaning and understanding, and also with our writing. We will then be beginning to examine the life of William Shakespeare, his work and developing our writing around this. This is in preparation for the Shakespeare project we shall be undertaking in term 2. We are still waiting for greater details about how the project will be followed this year, but I am sure that it will still prove to be an exciting opportunity for the children.
Throughout this time, Wolves will be developing our writing techniques with examining description within a variety of contexts (character descriptions, setting descriptions, in character writing and many more). In all, Year 6 will be beginning as we mean to continue with the principal that reading and writing are paramount to our successes throughout the year.
Our main topic this half term will be The Grand Canyon. This is an engaging topic which strives to introduce the children to the glory that is this breath-taking, extraordinary natural wonder. The children will begin to appreciate the enormity of this phenomenon, something which can be observed from space. I have been extremely fortunate to witness this. Without question it remains a place of inspiration, a place of tranquillity and amazement, a place of inexhaustible wonder. I hope that the thrill that I experienced when I looked upon this place will inspire the children.
We look forward to welcoming back everyone.
Mr Affleck and Mrs Kingston.
