Wise Class (Year 6)
In Wise Class this term we are looking at the ancient civilisation of the Maya and learning all about their culture and where they lived. We will be performing a Mayan Myth on World Book day , where we will create a puppet theatre and write our own scripts.
In science this term we are studying the Body and the effects of exercise on the heart and lungs - so we'll need some good weather to enable us to get active outside.
Literacy and Numeracy continue with us writing persuasive letters about our own graffiti tags and writing a flashback narrative which includes a memory of an adult from home.
We have the excitement of working with Bike Right this term and each child will spend 2 days learning how to ride safely on their bikes while on the roads. It is a really valuable skill and we are really lucky to have this experience in school.
Home-learning this term turns it's focus onto remembering and revising all we need to know for our SATS in May with punctuation, grammar and maths skills heavy on our agenda.
It's a busy term with the weather hopefully turning warmer and signs of Spring appearing everywhere!
In topic for this term we have been looking at World War two and learning about the effects of the war on the people at home. One topic we focussed on was rationing and we did some cooking using war time recipes.
In science we have look at classification, which included sorting ourselves in to different groups and we learned about some of the kingdoms in Linneaus’ classification system. In our electricity topic we have investigated what happens to different components in a circuit when we made changes to that circuit. We are currently working on protypes for our Christmas light decorations that we have designed.
