Year 6: Endeavour Class

Summer Term

The class have worked hard to revise and prepare for their SATs which take place 8th May to 11th May.

To finish the first half term, we will engage in some focused narrative writing based on our class novel, Skellig, by David Almond.

There will also be follow-up formal non-fiction writing about our learning at the Camden Junior Citizenship day.

Our school journey to France, 5th - 9th June, will provide the basis for an independent non-fiction writing project and presentation.

We will also begin to read and become familiar with the play script for our end of year show: The Keymaster, by Nick Perrin.  Each pupil has their own copy of the script and parts will be allocated by half term.  Pupils with the most lines to learn should aim to be familiar with as much as possible over the holiday so that we can begin rehearsals the week after the France trip.

Our mathematics groups will be adapted after the SATs so that the class have opportunities to work as a whole group on problem solving in 'real life' contexts, for example budgeting or organising an event, and sequencing related to geometric patterning.

We will also be learning about Ancient Egypt.  Using historical accounts and observation of artefacts,  we can gain a deeper understanding about everyday life and beliefs.  This topic will be the starting point for imaginative narratives and debate: should ancient discoveries be taken away from their place of origin?

In science, we will build upon previous knowledge about electricity and circuits in order to help design and make a moving model as a design technology project.

In RE we will learn about sacraments; the ceremony and symbols that are associated with them.  Comparisons will be made with rites of passage in the Hindu faith.

Our PHSCE learning will be based upon Citizenship and how to prepare fro moving on to secondary school.

 

 

PE:  Year 6 will have games on Fridays. We will also have additional PE sessions as we are no longer swimming this term.

Please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit for these lessons.  If your child is participate in PE, please provide a letter with reasonable detail.

This is given out on Thursdays and returned on Tuesdays.

Spellings will be given out on Monday and tested on the following Monday.  Please support your child in learning these.
