6L

Spring 1

Happy New Year

 

Welcome back 6L!

This half term we shall be studying the period of Ancient Egypt, a fascinating ancient civilisation. We shall be examining the civilisation from the year 3000 BC and eventually fell in 30BC, including the building of the Valley of the Kings and Queens and the creation of the Pyramids of Giza.

 

We shall be exploring famous Pharaohs , such as Tutankhakmum and Cleopatra, looking at the importance of the River Nile, exploring the religious beliefs of the Egyptians and much more! 

 

In Maths, we shall be exploring measurement, shape and algebra in preparation for the SATs in May. 6L have had a superb first term and have all made super progress - we cannot wait for the challenges of 2020!

 

The children cannot wait for February - residential trip! High ropes, river walking, archery and the night walk are all activities we are looking forward to. Be sure to check back here for more photos after the trip!

Autumn 2

The children in 6L have had a fantastic term! All of the children have been working hard across all areas of the curriculum and great progress has been made by all. 

 

As part of our Learning Journey, we have been exploring what skills a geographer needs and we have carried out a variety of fieldwork activity, based on our trip to Dovedale.

Autumn 2's hard work

Welcome to 6L!

Autumn 1

Come and have a look at all the exciting things we will be learning about in class!

 

This half term (Autumn 1) in Maths we shall be exploring place value and the four operations. In English, we shall be writing a poem based on the D-Day Normandy landings in 1944, as well as writing a diary from the point of view of an evacuee. Additionally, we shall be writing a setting description based on our Learning Journey, which is World War Two. In Science, we are learning about electricity, whilst in RE we shall be studying Sikhism. PE lessons will consist of Handball and Netball. 

 

To immerse ourselves in our World War Two Learning Journey, we were fortunate enough to have a visitor into school, who taught us all about life during World War Two. We learnt about the main countries involved in the war, as well as experiencing what life was like during the Blitz. We explored and investigated many artefacts from WW2, learnt basic first aid procedures and discussed what life would have been like for ordinary people during the war. A huge thank you to Leigh for a fantastic day!

WW2 Immersion Day

The 6L Spelling Inspire workshop was a big success: a big thank you to all the parents and carers who attended. Hopefully, you have learnt some new strategies to help with the children's spellings. 
In English, the children were excited to write about the Normandy D-Day landings. Some children felt inspired enough to write their own poem at home! We were able to produce some exceptional poetry and create some wonderful imagery to describe what happened on June 6th, 1944. A super start to our Year 6 writing! 
The children are extremely excited to be learning about electricity! To begin our topic, we recapped our knowledge of vocabulary linked to electricity from Year 4 and investigated the different components needed to make a circuit. We used our prior knowledge from Year 4 to justify and predict which circuits would work and would not.
