Year 6 - Polar Bear Class

Welcome to Polar Bear Class, our teacher is Miss Kleebaum.

Term 3

 

P.E this term is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will be learning hockey and gymnastics! As the weather is becoming colder I do suggest layers for P.E clothes!

This term our topic is: Monstrous Mountains! We will be learning about this through our different subjects, even having somebody in who has climbed a mountain! Mountains are amazing and the skill required to climb them incredible! We will be taking a closer look at the largest mountain in the world: Everest! Did you know that Everest grows by approximately 2 cm every year!!!

Our reading book this term is still: The Girl Who Speaks Bear by Sophie Anderson. As I predicted, the children are loving this book! They can't help but to wonder who Yanka's parents are and is she fully turning into a bear?

Term 2

P.E this term is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We will be learning boxing and rugby! As the weather is becoming colder I do suggest layers for P.E clothes!

This term our topic is: Raging Rivers! We will be learning about this through our different subjects, even taking a trip to the local river to do some testing! Rivers provide many uses for our everyday life but can become hazardous when they flood. We will be look specifically at the river in Bangladesh and the problems it causes when it floods.

Our reading book this term is: The Girl Who Speaks Bear by Sophie Anderson. I love this book! It is such an interesting story that I am sure the children are going to enjoy!

We had a lovely time on our river trip where we did some geography field work! Unfortunately, we were unable to spot the Canterbury Creature under the West Gate Tower bridge.

Term 1

Welcome to the new Polar Bears for 2021-2022! We have a very exciting year ahead of us!

P.E this term in on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will be learning about cricket and netball- both outside, so please make sure you bring appropriate clothing to change into on these days.

This term our topic is : The Battle of Britain. We will be learning about this through different subjects in the curriculum including in DT where we will be designing and making our own waistcoats! I encourage the children to interview family members who may have experienced life during these times and share what they have learnt with us! 

For reading, we will be using the book: Goodnight Mister Tom. This is a lovely book and I am sure the children will love the story.

I will be regularly updating our class dojo story. I will use the story to show the learning we have completed in class and share the success of the children!

19.10.21

An amazing end to our topic. Flight Officer Abrahams came in to talk to the children about his experience as a Lancaster bomber pilot for the R.A.F during World War 2. The children prepared excellent questions to interview him and enjoyed hearing his stories!

Last week, for Oracy week, the whole school studied explorers. To connect with our WW2 topic, Year 6 looked at Marie Tharp. She explored the ocean floor and discovered the concept of continental drift. We wrote poems about her and drew pictures to create this marvellous display.
