Welcome to 6B
Our class teacher is Mrs Bajada and our teaching assistant is Mrs Jones.
This term we will be using Wonder by R. J. Palacio to inspire discussions and creative writing during our lessons. We will be thinking about different points of view, writing our own Wonder chapters and publishing these.
This term we are learning about the Victorians. We will be investigating inventions and learning about how the Victorians have influenced our lives today, for example through the telephone, petrol powered cars, the London Underground and penny-farthings. We will also learn about life in a Victorian school and are very glad that we don't have the same punishments now! We are looking forward to our trip to Valence House in the second half of the autumn term.
We will be studying rivers in Geography this term and hope to investigate local rivers as part of a trip to the Hornchurch Country Park.
Please continue to read at least five times a week and record these in your reading records.

During the Autumn term, we will be focusing on the four operations and applying these to multi-step problems. We will have the opportunity to work with a partner to discuss the best approaches to word problems before solving problems independently. There will also be opportunities to draw the problems to support comprehension.
Children will be given morning challenges of White Rose problems of the day to embed their problem solving skills.
This term we are investigating Evolution and Inheritance. We will learn about inherited characteristics and the traits that could be passed down through generations. We will investigate Charles Darwin and his Theory of Evolution.
