Welcome to Willow 6
Welcome to the Spring term in Willow 6. Our topic this term is "Arriba, Arriba!" where we will be learning about South and Central America. Finding out about the different biomes, and in particular the rainforest, will link with our science work on evolution and help us think about how we can work together to protect the environment.
Our topic web for the term is below:
Mrs Bond is the Year 6 class teacher, supported by Mrs Allcock and Mrs Peters. PE will be taught by Mr Baker, our PE coach and children should have kit for both indoor and outdoor PE in school every day.
Homework is set on Seesaw each week and you can link to our Teams page here, where there are links to lots of homework resources.
Throughout the year, children should read for at least 20 minutes every day. Some suggested books for Year 6 children can be found below. Children are responsible for recording their reading and homework tasks in their planner, which should be brought to school every day.
