Class 6 - Mrs J Markworth and Mrs Wheeler
Welcome to Class 6
This year in English, we will be delving into some fabulous texts as part of our Literacy Tree scheme from which we will be basing our writing upon.
Our maths this year will focus on consolidating and deepening our understanding of key mathematical concepts as well as the introduction of some new topics such as algebra.
Taking inspiration from some of the world's most renowned scientists such as Darwin, Edison and Volta, we will be investigating light, electricity, micro-organisms, evolution and the circulatory system.
As historians, we will be travelling back in time to discover what it was like to be a child in World War 2 as part of a local study; exploring British Crime and Punishment through the ages and taking a look at life in the twentieth century and how Britain has changed since 1948. In geography, we will be researching our local area in relation to WW2, looking at our Extreme Earth and becoming tourists as we learn about North America.
In PE, we will be finessing our defending and attacking skills; moving and shaking with a carnival themed dance and developing our bat and ball skills with tennis and cricket.
Our music sessions will continue to be led by Mrs Chanchai who will be introducing us to a wide range of artists as we focus on an appreciation of music.
In Art and DT, we will be using our topics for inspiration to create a variety of different pieces in various forms of media.
Year 6 is an important time in our primary school years and we will be certain to accept challenges as learning opportunities, relish the responsibility that comes as part of being the oldest in the school, and make the most of our remaining moments with our St Michael’s family.
