Hello and welcome to our class page. We are all looking forward to an exciting and busy school year, with lots of things to discover and investigate. We are a class who are vibrant, energetic and enthusiastic and we are looking forward to the challenges ahead. We know we will have to work hard, but the rewards will be worth it!! We can't wait to get started.
During our journey through Year 6, we will endeavour to be role models to the rest of the school, be caring and open-minded pupils and ensure we are exemplary ambassadors for our class and for our school!
This term in English, we will be looking at at brilliant author - Michael Morpurgo. I know the children are extremely excited at the thought of finding out about a Giant's necklace, discovering what happens to our heroine Cherry in his short story taken from his book of short stories 'The Hereabout Hill.' Later on in the term we will be studying War Horse, something the class will savour.
We will be working on place value at the beginning of the Autumn term. In order to become proficient with place value, we need to ensure we understand the value of the digits we use. This will help with all aspects of our maths and our calculation skills, particularly when we tackle column methods for calculations.
In this topic the children will looking at how the heart and lungs work together and the function of both. We will have fun carrying out a range of investigations and answering questions like ' How does exercise affect the heart?' and 'Do taller children have a bigger lung capacity?'
6O are in for an exciting time when we go through the 20th century to find out about the different dance styles and entertainment throughout the century. They will be introduced to the fabulous dance steps of Fred Astaire, the innovative dance style of rock and roll with the shaking hips of Elvis Presley and the genius of Michael Jackson amongst others. To complete the topic, they will step into the infamous 6O time machine to visit the comic genius of Charlie Chaplin in a 1930's cinema. A treat in store for all I think!
During the Autumn term, 6O will be finding out abut the Festival of light, which is known as Diwali. They will be exploring the origin of its name and how it is celebrated all over the world. The tale of 'Rama and Sita' allows the children to explore the origins of Diwali and the battle of good over evil.
Today, we use a variety of apps on phones and other devices daily. They have become a part of everyday as they deliver news, allow us to play games and keep us connected to our friends and family. They are also be a source of information and in the Autumn term, we will be making our very own app with the support of Mr Triggs.
in art the children will be introduced to Surrealism and discover it is a great way of expressing moods and opinions. we will have the opportunity to explore many different artists, including Salvado Dali, we will try and replicate pictures in our own imitable way. The great thing about our designs is that they can be interpreted in many different ways.
