Our Topic this term is called: 'Would you like an evening with Year 6?'
As the SATs Tests are near approaching and will commence on May 14th, the next few weeks will be focused mainly on revision to ensure the children are as well prepared as they can be. Plenty of reading and revision at home would also be helpful to achieve this.
However, after that we will begin to plan and organise our Evening With Year 6, which will take place at the end of the term. The children will be inviting parents into school for the evening to be fed, watered and entertained!
Our class book for this term is called: 'Trash'. It deals with some quite challenging and mature topics, including poverty, corruption and friendship alongside an exciting plot!
We will also be finishing our balanced argument this week. The children will have to give the for and against reasons for the question: 'Should Britain have declared war on Germany in 1939?'
The children will be revising shape, perimeter, fractions, decimals and percentages.
Our Science topic this term is Electricity. The children will begin to look at identifying different components that make up a circuit.
To aid our project, the children will be researching and planning out their menus for the Evening with Year 6, reading to pitch to the rest of the class shortly.
The children will be recapping their word processing skills using the iPads and will revisit Code for Life.
Every Wednesday, the children will have a percussion lesson with Mr Cook - we will be learning to play Samba!
