Following on from our work using 'The Hero's Journey', we are applying this story structure to 'The NeverEnding Story'
Year 6 have watched the movie and have been writing creative news reports inspired by events from the film.
6C voted to report on a book theft in Downtown Seattle.
6E voted to write a report on the death of Artex, Atreyu's horse.
This half term in Maths we are focusing on fractions and their equivalents.
Lessons will involve adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing with fractions, finding decimal and percentage equivalents, using mixed number and improper fractions and problems solving.
We are strongly encouraging children to practise their times tables. The end of year expectation is that children can quickly recall all multiples up to 10 x 10.
We would also like children to work hard on recalling division facts as this will directly help our understanding of fractions.
Our Science topic this half term is 'Animals and Their Habitats'.
We will be investigating the interdependence and adaptation of living organisms, at all levels, upon planet Earth.
Topics will include the classification of living things, investigating the work of Carl Linnaeus, identifying living creatures using formal scientific classification vocabulary (including Latin) and researching microorganisms.
Our topic this half term is 'Stone Age to Iron Age'.
We have looked at The Cradle of Civilisation and how neolithic man travelled and evolved. There are many interesting sites of historical significance around the British Isles and we will be looking at Skara Brae, Maiden Castle (Hillfort), Stone Henge and various other locations.
We will be looking at how people lived in the Stone, Bronze and Iron age and how they interacted with the Roman Empire towards the end of their reign.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday but please bring clean PE kit in on Monday each week.
