Mississippi - Year Six
At the start of this half term we will continue revising for our SATs. The children have done an AMAZING job so far with their revision- I’m very proud of what they have achieved so far, as I’m sure you are too. We will also be finishing off our Vikings topic following on from our fantastic trip to Murton Park. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day; I hope the children told you all about it!
Our new topic will then be ‘Coasts’. In Geography, we will be learning about key topographical features (including hills, mountains, coasts and rivers). We will then learn how to use the eight points of a compass, four and six-figure grid references, symbols and keys. We will also be preparing for our end of year trip to Whitby by looking at the human and physical features of the seaside town.
In English, we will be reading and writing about Dracula. Our class novel will be ‘Room 13’ which is a spooky Vampire story. We will begin by writing a newspaper report, then we will be writing our own Dracula stories, writing instructions and descriptions. In Maths, we will be learning about circles and how to use compasses to draw circles. In Science, we will be learning about classification, microorganisms, evolution and the circulatory system. In PSHE we will finish our SRE unit.
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 is due in the following Wednesday.
- We have PE on a Tuesday however this may change due to the weather so the children need to keep their PE kits in school every day
