Team 6 2021 - 2022
Welcome to the Team 6 page!
Our 2021 - 2022 Spring term's theme is:
Part 1: Conservation - Endangered Animals
Part 2: Conservation - Climate Change
During Spring Term, Team 6 will use this theme to develop our Geographical skills and understanding of the world. We will be identifying and locating various countries around the world, recapping on our knowledge of the continenets of the world and surrounding oceans. We will be learning about land use and how this has changes over time, including how this impacts the world in which we live.
During this learning, we will be developing our computing skills by creating own own powerpoints to present our learning over the topic. We will be learning how to use this program effectively: using fonts/text boxes, inputting images/sound clips to entertain the viewer.
For the 2nd part of this theme, in Spring 2, we will be learning about chnages to climates around the world over time and find out what we can do to help.
During Spring Term, our class reads will be ‘High Rise Mystery’ by Sharna Jackson and 'Wonder' by R.J. Palacio.
We will use the theme ‘Conservation’ to develop all areas of the curriculum. PE will be on a Wednesday afternoon. Team 6 should come to school dressed in their PE kits every Wednesday, ready for PE.

Please see the home learning tab on our website for information about the purpose of home learning at Horn’s Mill and why reading is highly valued. Team 6 will be expected to read for 5 times a week at home for at least 15 minutes. Alongside reading themselves, it would be hugely beneficial if they listened to an adult read at home regularly. Recommendations can be found on our home learning document attached to this page. Team 6 will also be expected to use Times Tables Rock Stars regularly at home to support their times tables knowledge and help them to build confidence with instant recall of their times tables.
