What a busy term coming up!

The children have made a fantastic start to the term with their learning – in numeracy we are focusing on developing our skills to calculate fractions and expanding our understanding of shape and space. As always we continue to develop their reasoning skills daily. A way to support this at home could be to set a number challenge for the week based on what they are learning at the time at school. Homework sent home weekly will give you and the children ideas if you would like to try creating your own number challenges.

In Topic we are continuing with ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ and studying the relationships between the allied forces and axis, the reasons why it is called a ‘world’ war and the significance of Armistice Day.

The Chronicles of Narnia continues in our Literacy lesson with activities ranging from newspaper and incident reports to descriptions of  characters and book reviews. This continues also into our work with SNAP Theatre. The children have been working diligently and had immense fun developing aspects of drama, dance and music with Andy and his team. We do hope that you will joining us to watch their performance here at the school at 2pm on the 23rd November.

Year 6 Week 5

We are very proud of how well our children performed with SNAP Theatre last week. All children remembered their lines and delivered them with fluency and expression. It was lovely to see so many parents who came to watch their children also.

This week in Maths we will be continuing to look at 3D shapes and measures, particularly converting metric and imperial measures. In Literacy we are looking at newspaper articles and will be writing an article based on Chapter 11 of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

In topic we are delving deeper into World War II, particularly fashion of the 1940s and Enigma Code.

In Science we are looking at Electricity.

Budding Actors!

Over the next couple of weeks it will be very exciting in Year 6. We have our production coming up with our actors Andy and Ben. We have been very busy rehearsing our plays and our dance. We have worked incredibly hard with the project and this dedication is starting to pay off. We have also been completing our Mock SATs which we have tried so very hard with.

Last week of term.

Next week Year 6 have our resident actors, Ben and Andy, back in to work with us. The children thoroughly enjoy these visits and gain a great deal of confidence with their speaking, listening and vocabulary. We will be working on our plays that we have started, by rehearsing them and creating a new third piece.

In Maths we will be finishing off our unit on Number – looking at rounding numbers beyond 1,000,000.

Our topic of WWII is in full swing now and the children will be creating some art work on The Blitz. They will be creating silhouettes of London at night during The Blitz.
