HOW CAN YOU HELP?

If you can share any knowledge relating to our topic we would love to hear about it, plus if you have any skills (and time) related to the lessons we would do our best to include you in an afternoon with the children! 

TOPIC - Game On!

This is a topic is all about heroines and how they shaped the world today. Our topic will begin looking at the game monopoly which was made by a woman.

We will be finding out:

  • about Yorkshire and the places in our county.

  • about Elizabeth Magie and create games which have an electrical element to them.

  • democracy and the equalities faced by women.

  • Look at coding in computing.

At Home... Why not:

  • Create your own game. It could be a Bradley edition of Monopoly.

  • Make a powerpoint presentation to inform others about a part of this topic which really interests you

  • Film yourself on SeeSaw in a documentary style presentation - interviewing a mathematician from our book 'Hidden figures'

  • Create a collage of the county we live in and why it is so great to live here.

Science: Electricity

Associate the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in a circuit

Compare and give reasons for variations in how components function including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches

Use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram

PE: Tennis. This half term we have Andy, our tennis coach, working with Year 6 to practise their tennis skills.

Maths

 

This half term we will be revising for the first two weeks before SATs. After SATs, the children will be doing more investigation style lessons which will allow them to apply the skills they have learnt in Year 6 so far.

English and Reading

In our Reading lessons, we are following the story Hidden Figures. It's a true story of four African-American women who helped launch our nation into space.

Writing will be the main focus after SATs. This half term our writing will come from our book Hidden Figures. We will be linking our writing to science and learning more about these inspirational women.

Other Useful Information

After Easter it's the SATs tests and writing pieces are handing in. Little and often will win the race.
