Greetings and welcome to Term 6
Thanks again to all parents who came to view our assembly, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did presenting it!? I'm sure you will agree they are a great bunch and have grown massively in confidence!
This term we are trialling a new way of approaching writing. We select a specific purpose for our writing and then tailor the teaching towards a specific genre, for example we shall be writing to inform this term. We shall be looking at biographies and diary writing.
This term will be aimed at consolidating existing skills and revisiting areas that the children find challenging. I will be asking the children to identify these areas as well as using data from last terms assessments, which I'm pleased to say, went really well!
We shall continue with Electricity this term, so insulators, conductors, switches, circuits and so on, then finish off with a series of stand alone experiments and investigations which I hope the children will enjoy and tell you about themselves.
Athletics this term in readiness for sports day. We shall be running (a lot) and practising field events such as javelin. shot putt, long and triple jump. This will be on a Wednesday. I kindly remind parents and carers that the children are required to have a full kit of white top, black shorts and trainers/plimsols.
This term we are looking at Crime and Punishment. We shall look at how it has changed throughout the ages and how it compares to the present day.
