Welcome back after the Christmas break!

This term our topic is ‘Shakespeare’.  

Our Literacy work will link with our topic, as we will write stories and newspaper reports based on 'The Tempest'. In all of these texts we will be focusing on securing the sentence level skills taught last year and extending our use of vocabulary. 

In Maths we will be covering a wide range of topics and really focusing on problem solving skills, but key topics will include: fractions and percentages, conversions of measures, negative numbers, drawing shapes on a co-ordinate grid, pie charts and using simple formulae.  We continue to do an arithmetic lesson every week, which develops pupils’ confidence in solving number sums using a range of written methods.  

P.E lessons will generally take place on a Tues (indoor lesson) and a Thursday (outdoor lesson).  Please ensure that children have appropriate kit in school at all times. This term our topics are gymnastics, and health and fitness.

 Term 1: Horrible Histories - Vile Victorians.

“On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, Year 6 went on a trip to St John’s House Museum in Warwick.  When we got there, we had to dress in Victorian clothes and go into the classroom.  We spent the morning with Miss Roach, the teacher.  She read us a story and then we had to practice our handwriting on slates.  We also did some maths problems about pennies, shillings and pounds.  Later, we learnt about a laundry maid’s job.  After lunch, we had a look around the museum.  There were World War II weapons, as well as Victorian toys.  Thank you to the adults who came with us – Mrs Hawkin, Mrs English, Mrs Tanner, Mrs Davis and Mr Hagger.”

 - Hasan Ali; Anas Hussain; Kyra Hickman and Luke Neal 

 

We looked at the story of 'Oliver Twist' by Charles Dickens and wrote our own version of the 'workhouse' scene.

Here is the display of our work.

 

 Term 2: The Firework Maker's Daughter

 Our D & T focus this term has been researching and designing our own firework packaging.

This term, we will be finding out about Shakespeare and his many works.

We have already read 'Macbeth' and 'The Tempest' and will be focusing on a setting description for our 'Big Write'.

In history, we will be learning about the causes of the War of the Roses: here we are drawing Tudor roses using a compass and protractor.
