Welcome to Acacia Class! Our class teachers are Mrs Saulet and Mrs Clarke, and our teaching assistants are Mrs Brooke and Mrs Sewell.
It is great to see the children back in school and ready for a busy, productive year in Year Six! We have got an exciting term ahead with many interesting areas of learning across the curriculum. In class, the children have already started to familiarise themselves with school life and routines in a new year group. We have begun reading our class reader: Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Caroll, a wartime drama that takes many interesting twists and turns. We will also be reading and studying The Wedding Ghost in our English lessons.
In History, we will be studying The Vikings. In particular, we will focus on Viking invasion and learn about life during this historical period through the study of artefacts.
In our Science lessons, we will be learning about living things and their classification. Throughout the year, we will take some time to learn about key scientists in history and their theories and discoveries.
PE will be taught twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Reading diaries will be checked by the class teacher every Monday and everyone is expected to read daily (with 3 signatures per week from an adult). Reading continues to be an essential part of homework at Buckingham School, and we will spend time encouraging this by discussing, reading and reviewing books every week.
We have spent some time this week creating artwork in the style of Piet Mondrian:
