Rumour has it that there have been some unwelcome surprises, during the Easter holidays, in the village of Croxby… Not only Croxby but their neighbours in Nettleby too! Hopefully, Team 6 will join their neighbours and put their problem solving and investigative skills to the test when they try to solve the mystery of ‘whodunit’ at the beginning of the term. After this, the team will be writing formally, in the genre of police reports, to recount the crimes that have taken place followed by writing fictitious stories of mystery and suspense.
The team have a lot to look forward to this term: script writing for the Team 5/6 production; a residential trip to PGL; working closely with Team 5 in many areas of the curriculum and, of course, their end of KS2 SATs. These tests run for one week, commencing Monday 11 May. It will be really important that there are early nights so we’re refreshed each day, nutritious breakfasts eaten so that our brains are well-prepared for the day ahead and lots of chill-out time in-between so that we’re totally relaxed. This is an important time in the academic year for Year 6 pupils but I am completely convinced that they are all ready to shine and ready to show everyone just how brilliant they are.
In Maths, we will be extremely focused on improving our understanding in areas such as interpreting data, solving word problems and geometry. The team will be learning all about electrical circuits in Science so that they can then transfer this knowledge, understanding and skills when they teach Team 5 how to construct and to modify circuits for a specific purpose. Equally, Team 5 will be teaching us how to design, construct and evaluate when we make models of our houses in Croxby.
P.E. will focus on gymnastics and athletics and will continue to be taught on Wednesdays and Thursdays by Mr Eshelbey. Mr Barlow will be teaching R.E. this term, focusing on the beliefs and actions of Muslims and Christians around the world.
This term really is an exciting and rewarding one. It’s the term when Y6 get to ‘show off’, to really demonstrate their years of hard work and to make sure that, as always, they are trying their hardest.
It’ll be ‘busy, busy, busy’ but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
