Mississippi - Year Six
I can’t believe it is the last half term already! Let’s make the most of it! We will be starting our ‘Coasts’ topic which the children are really excited about as it will prepare us for our Whitby trip! Thank you so much for donating so generously towards our trip- we are nearly at our target! It is going to be fantastic!
In English, we will be reading and writing about Dracula. We will also start reading ‘Room 13’ which I know the children will love…as do Mrs Kewley and I! We will also be reading the book ‘Flotsam’ and writing some poems. In Maths, we will be carrying out lots of investigations and learning how to draw a dart board using a protractor and a compass. In Science, we will be learning about evolution and microorganisms. To link with our Coasts topic, we will be creating 3D fish in DT and drawing/painting shells in Art. In PSHE we will start our drugs topic.
A few reminders:
- Please remember to read every night and remind your child to make a comment in their reading diary along with which pages they have read.
- Homework will be handed out on a Friday and are due in the following Wednesday.
- We have PE on a FRIDAY. We are doing gymnastics this half term so please make sure your child has suitable indoor gym kit.
