In Science we will be learning the following:
Biodiversity
: human impacts on biodiversity, and identify ways of preserving biodiversity
- characteristics of living things, and classify diverse organisms according to specific characteristics
- biodiversity, its contributions to the stability of natural systems, and its benefits to humans
Electricity: impact of the use of electricity on both the way we live and the environment
- characteristics of static and current electricity, and construct simple circuits
- principles of electrical energy and its transformation into and from other forms of energy.
 
Homework:
• Will be assigned and posted regularly on my class-website
• Will be checked regularly
• Should be completed the day it is assigned to allow for extra help
• Work at home should include class assignments, reviewing notes, multiplications tables/facts, studying for tests, reading, updating notes and organizing your binder
• If printing needs to be done at school, it should be done the day before the assignments is due
 
Extra Help: Extra help will be available throughout the week and times will be determined by the teacher

  • Supplies Needed for 2013-2014

The grade 6 level brings an increased sense of responsibility, leadership and expectations. Since more will be expected of students individually this year, they will be held accountable for their work habits, work completion, assignment punctuality, and most importantly observance of school & class rules.

One skill needed to make this year successful is organization. Students are expected to be prepared everyday for class. Materials they need for their classes are:

4 Duotangs

Lined papers

pencil case

2 sharpened Pencils

Pens

Eraser

Pencil sharpener

Ruler

Protractor

Highlighter

Calculator

Pencil crayons/ markers

Scissors

Glue stick

Gym Clothes in labelled bag

It is important that students remain organized so more time will be spent on LEARNING rather than looking for misplaced materials.
