Team 6 2020 - 2021
Welcome to the Team 6 page!
Our 2020 - 2021 Summer term's theme is:
During Summer Term, Team 6 will use this theme to learn about changes to our planet and the conservation efforts in place to protect it. We will be focusing on wildlife in particular and using the text 'Can we save the tiger' to support our learning. This text will also be used in our writing lessons, where we will be developing our skills, leading to an explanation text.
During this learning, we will be developing our locational geographical skills by locating different countries where endangered wildlife are found and finding out about the issues causing animals to become endangered.
During Summer Term, our class reads will be ‘High Rise Mystery’ by Sharna Jackson and ‘Gulliver's Travels' retold by Martin Jenkins.
We will use the theme ‘Endangered’ to develop all areas of the curriculum. PE will be on a Monday afternoon with Coach Craig. Team 6 should come to school dressed in their PE kits every Monday, 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.
