Summer 1 Overview
For our pupils in Class 6 this is a very busy term. They will be performing in a play at the end of the year, going on a 3 day Residential Activity Visit (14th-16th July to Borwick Hall) and taking part in Sports Day. We hope they continue to work hard and behave as we expect our oldest pupils to, right until the end of term.
In R.E. we will be following the topic ‘The Transforming Spirit’, which includes the Ascension and Pentecost. Pupils will continue to prepare their own liturgies in addition to this.
In English, we will continue to write for a range of audiences and purposes. The children will continue to use the Accelerated Reader programme to support their developing comprehension skills. They will learn about both fiction and non-fiction, as well as poetry.
In maths we will focus on statistics and geometry. We will also develop both written and mental strategies for the four number operations, increasing in speed and accuracy. In addition to this, we will continue to explore shape - translation, reflection and co-ordinates.
In Geography the children will use their skills to explore digital maps.
Our science work will be linked with Personal, Social and Healthy Education where we will be looking at all aspects of health and hygiene e.g. diet, washing, growing up and bodily changes. We will also study a unit on First Aid which will help the children should they need any of these skills.
Work planned for P.E. and Games will include athletics, cricket and rounders. Key Stage 2 sports afternoon is Tuesday 22nd June with the reserve date being Thursday 24th June.
Many thanks for your continued support during this very busy and important term.
