The term has already got off to an electrifying start when we joined Marvin and Milo to explore some super, exciting Science investigations. Electricity will run at high levels of voltage in Class 6 this term as we learn all about circuits, circuit symbols and drawing circuit diagrams (to name just a few areas). In DT, we will investigate switches, design our own torches then apply our scientific circuit building skills when we make them. Literacy will take on an apocalyptic theme as we pick apart flashback texts so that we can improve our writing skills even further.
In Maths it’s full steam ahead as we make sure we’re in tip-top condition, ready for May. We will be covering concepts such as: dividing fractions, word problems involving money and units of measurements, calculating with positive and negative numbers, parallel and perpendicular lines, using a protractor accurately to measure and to draw angles and, of course, continuing with improving our use of formal written methods for all four operations. Phew! Mr Asplin’s early morning booster sessions will continue right up until SATs for those children that currently attend.
RE will focus on beliefs and actions in the world as we investigate whether Christian Aid and Islamic Relief really can change the world and in Music, Mr Barlow will be using digital technology so that we can compose, edit and refine – can’t wait to hear those musical masterpieces.
P.E. continues to be on Mondays and Tuesdays. Homework continues to be handed out on Mondays and Fridays.
You know where I am if you have any questions or concerns and, if I’m not in the classroom, please leave a message with one of the other adults.
