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 towards our trip so far. We have some more fundraising activities planned so keep an eye out for some letters which the children will be writing.
In English, we will continue 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 continue with our hearts unit then 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. Our Mindmate lesson will be ‘Solving problems and making it better’. We will then start our SRE unit in PSHE. In Spanish we will learn some adjectives, prepositions and learn to ask questions. We will continue with drums this half term which the children are really enjoying.
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 and FRIDAY. We are doing gymnastics this half term so please make sure your child has suitable indoor gym kit. We are doing outdoor PE too so please make sure your child has suitable trainers.
