Year 6 are currently investigating 'How do we all live together?'
We are being Historians and Philosophers to help us answer our enquiry this term.
 
 
 
Maths
In maths this term, we are looking at data (line graphs, pie charts and mean), formal methods for x and ÷, co-ordinates and intervals of time
 
 
English
We are reading the story of Weslandia by Paul Fleischman.
We are creating pieces of writing inspired by this book and by experiences we have outside. We imagined that our gardens were turned into forests and went outside to investigate. Having made lists of vocabulary we could use, we have written paragraphs describing how we felt when we stepped out of the back door to be greeted by trees and wildlife.
We will look at words classes, punctuating speech and using cohesive devices to make our work flow and link together.
 
 
General Reminders
 
PE is on a Tuesday and a Thursday afternoon and will be outdoors as much as possible. For Term 5 we will be playing Tennis and Cricket. Please make sure children come to school wearing their PE kit and they are wearing suitable layers e.g. a dark hoody, white t-shirt, dark joggers and trainers. Any piercings/jewelry must be removed; please ensure children know how to do this.
 
We expect children to read 3x weekly and record this in their Reading Record. This can be filled out by them and then signed by an adult. Children who do not do this will be kept in during a break time to complete additional reading.
