Year Six - Hawthorn and Sycamore
This half term, we enjoyed learning about World War II and learning more about what life was like during this time period, we have also created propaganda posters linked to the war. In guided reading, we have been reading ‘Letters from the Lighthouse,’ which links to our history lessons, and have then created our own front cover for the story.
During D&T, we have enjoyed making bird houses, by learning to saw wood and then carefully nail them together, whilst ensuring we didn’t accidentally hit our thumbs!
Throughout our science lessons, we have enjoyed learning about the eye and taking part in experiments to investigate light. In PE, we enjoyed bringing our bikes in to school and learning how to safely ride our bikes, some of us started being unable to ride a bike and by the end of the day were riding independently! We were also lucky enough to have another visitor come in and tell us about university opportunities and help us consider what we would like to study later on in our education. We have enjoyed securing our maths skills, such as multiplying, dividing, adding and subtracting, as well as looking at fractions, percentages and decimals.
As we have got closer to Christmas, we have also enjoyed making Christmas decorations that we will be bringing home to hang on our Christmas trees.
We have also sat our first SATS practise test and were proud of the progress we have made so far this year. 😊
