Summer Term 1 - 2021
Class 6 have been very busy this half term! We are still enjoying our WW2 topic and have written some excellent newspapers, narratives and non-chronological reports in Literacy. We have also researched the different types of air raid shelters used during WW2 and designed and made our own in DT. We also had the brilliant experience of having Hepp DT in to work with us to make WW2 Spitfire planes which we thought was a brilliant day.
We have been working on Tennis in PE with Mr Horton and now know all of the rules and can play in matches against each other. In Science, we have covered Light and have produced some excellent work on the eye!
Spring Term - 2021
Year six have had a busy half term. We have seen some excellent home learning and also some fantastic work when the children returned to school. We celebrated world book day a little bit differently this year but we enjoyed taking part in a live draw along session with the creator of Tom Gates! We have also started our WW2 topic and have found out about the countries involved and how the war began. We enjoyed creating our own flying machines in our literacy hook lesson and finally saw how our short film Soar ended on the last day of term. We are looking forward to the summer term!
Autumn Term 2 - 2020
Class 6 have had a busy half term and the children have been working very hard! We have taken part in odd socks day for anti-bullying week, live lessons with Chester zoo, interviews with authors and been a part of the Youth Climate Summit. We have enjoyed out new topic Darwin’s Delights and have focussed on geography, learning about human and physical features and the Galápagos Islands.
The highlight of this half term has been finishing our much loved class novel The Boy at the Back of the Class.
Autumn Term 1 - 2020
Class 6 have had a busy half term including creating emotion wheels as part of our Mental Health Week, using the text Shackleton’s Journey to create outstanding writing and playing hockey in PE. Our class novel this half term ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ has gripped us and we have shown great empathy with the characters. We even tried pomegranate to see if it matched the description and taste in the book.
Class 6 have settled in well to their final year of primary school and are already working exceptionally hard! We have enjoyed reading our class novel, The Boy at the Back of the Class and are excited to find out what will happen next.
In Literacy, we have already written some excellent diary entries as a crew member on the expedition ship ‘The Endurance’ with explorer Ernest Shackleton. We are working on recapping knowledge from year 5 in Maths and have learnt how to work with negative and decimal numbers. We will be moving to calculation where we will cover the long methods of calculation plus fractions, decimals and percentages. Our new topic ‘Frozen Kingdoms’ has sparked our curiosity and we looking forward to investigating more about it after learning about Indigenous People of the Arctic and the different climate zones of the Earth.
Some children have also completed the Bikeability certification which is an excellent achievement.
