We began this year by exploring the book, ‘There’s a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom' by Louis Sacher. We have had discussions about friendships, new challenges and reflecting upon learning attitudes and behaviour as a direct result of this heart-warming tale.
During the second half of the Autumn Term we enjoyed an exciting story called, ‘Henry’s Freedom Box' by Ellen Levine. This picture book sparked many a conversation about the slave trade and Black History.
Over the Spring Term we enjoyed Shakespeare's classic of Romeo and Juliet - the language, the drama, the story. This coincided with National Shakespeare Week were we also looked at the gory classic of Macbeth.
As we move forward into the Summer Term, we will be looking at St George and his battle with the Dragon - building an alternative ending by building suspense and tension.
Within maths this term, we will be covering fractions - equivalence, quantities of, using the four operations. Within each lesson, we continue to practice our counting and keeping up our fluency with our mental maths and number sense. During the week, the children will have access to a number of our apps that can also be accessed at home. These are TT Rockstars, Number Gym and Manga High.
In science this term, we will be exploring Circuits - using the appropriate equipment to construct circuits and explain concepts such as resistance.
Year 6 will be covering Sustainability - looking at ways that our planet can be preserved and how we can all contribute.
Initially, the children will be analysing fairground rides and the mechanisms which allow these to work. Year 6 will be using their newly-acquired knowledge of electricity and circuits to construct a fairground ride. They will also be using their computing skills to put together a blueprint of their idea.
We are exploring the way in which Jews live their lives, starting with understanding the four main beliefs of Judaism.
