Year 6 - Platypus Class

Welcome to Platypus Class!

 Our teacher is Mrs Webb and our T.As are Mrs Kaur and Mrs Dwyer.


Term 3

Our topic in Term 3 is history based. We will be answering an enquiry question about The Trojan Horse: Is this well known story legend, myth or fact? This will involve learning about the Trojan War and the Ancient Greeks and investigating any evidence of this fantastical tale. Children will reach their own conclusions based on what they discover. 

For reading this term, Year 6 will be continuing 'The Girl Who Speaks Bear' by Sophie Anderson, which will enable the children to use their imaginations as they practise inference and evaluative skills once more. Will Yanka find out the secret of her past and will she be destined to have bear legs forever?

                                                         The Girl Who Speaks Bear: Sophie Anderson, Kathrin ...

Our P.E days this term will again be a Monday and every two Wednesdays. Please ensure that your child has the correct kit, clearly labelled and in a bag which can be kept in their locker. This must include a t-shirt in their house colour, black shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers/plimsolls. 

We will also be having Forest School every two Wednesdays, starting in Week 1. Children must bring old, warm clothing in a bag please to change into after lunch. Wellington boots are also strongly advised as the weather is increasingly cold and wet.
