Moving Forward, Aiming High!

6L

Welcome to 6L!

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!

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.
