Chocolate Tasting!! 19/1/17

Spring Curriculum

 

During spring term in year 6 the learning will focus around the topic of ‘Who invented chocolate?’ Our trip to Cadbury World will be a value learning experience to immerse the children into the unit and bring the topic to life.

 

In English, our initial focus text will be on ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ written by Roald Dahl. The children will be developing their narrative writing skills with a short story written by the end of the unit. Following this, we will be teaching the children to write more effective instructional texts, persuasive writing and poetry.

 

In Maths, we will be covering some new concepts within the teaching of percentages, ratio, measurement as well as area and perimeter. We will then be spending the remaining times on reviewing and revisiting the children’s knowledge of prior learning including: multiplication and division methods, addition and subtraction problems, fractions, multiplication and division and decimal numbers.

 

Within History, the children will learn all about Mayan and Aztec civilisation providing a strong contrast with British history. This will then lead us to our Geography, within which the main focus will be on Northern Central America where the children will use computer mapping to locate countries and describe their features.

 

As part of our creative curriculum the children will be designing a chocolate product, which will cement their ability to design, make, develop and evaluate. This will also link to our English learning of advertising and persuasive writing.

 

On Wednesdays the children will have PE, which they are all required to take part in. They will continue to need their PE kits in school, which should consist of: black or white shorts/ tracksuit bottoms, plain white t-shirt and trainers.

 

Spring term is an incredibility important term within year 6 where we will be challenging all learners to achieve their very best. We continue to appreciate your support. Should you have any question please speak to your child’s class teacher.

 

Homework

 

You'll be pleased to know that the books have arrived therefore your homework will be to read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl by January 27th 2017. Remember you also have 30 minutes of Maths to complete each week. Please come and speak to me if you need any help with the questions. 

 

Remember there is additional work that would support your in school learning on SPAG.com and Mathletics. smiley

 

Some fantastic crafting!

Terrific Tigers Baking with Mr Webster! 30/09/16

Holocaust Trip 27/09/16

Year 6 experienced a trip to the Holocaust Centre this week where they learnt about what life was like before and during WW2. They went through the 'journey' in which they followed the life of Leo Stein, a young German Jewish boy, who kept a diary about what his experience was like. Year 6 did themselves and their school proud and our guide commented on the 'thought-provoking' questions they asked and the 'deep understanding' they had about the Holocaust.

 

As part of the trip, we met a survivor of the Holocaust who told his story about what times were like in 1938 and beyond. As a thank you, in our English lessons for the rest of the week, we are going to write letters to Simon to express our gratitude to him for taking the time to talk to us as he gave a real insight into his life.

 

Photos were prohibited in the Centre, but a few photos were taken in the Memorial Garden where the children had a chance to reflect on what they had learnt throughout the day.

Publishing our first piece of writing. 9/9/16
