Our Summer Term Learning
Our Summer End Outcome:
Last term we had an amazing end outcome to our work. We raised an amazing amount of money for the RBL with our coffee morning that was organised, advertised and run by our amazing year 6 class!
This term, we will be working hard to create our very own theme park ride! This will combine the work being done in our DT lessons on pulleys, levers and gears. We hope to have an open evening/afternoon to showcase our wonderful designs and creations!
In the summer term, we will be studying the following topics:
Geometry- properties of shapes
We will be looking at the book 'The Giant's Necklace' by Michael Morpurgo. We will do lots of predicting and writing about this book. We will also be creating non-chronological reports about bees.
In our history lessons, we will be going on a journey through British history as we discover how crime and punishment has changed throughout the ages. Beginning with the Romans and traveling right through to the present day, we will discover how changes in society have created changes in the kind of crimes that are committed, as well as the ways in which they are punished.
We will be studying rainforests in geography. We will be learning about what a rainforest is and locating them on maps. Children will learn about the different layers within a rainforest and to the specific features of each layer. As a research task, we will be studying the Congo rainforest and looking at the impacts of deforestation.
Our artist for this term is Henri Rousseau. We will be trying to create a piece of art in his style. The children will be using water colour techniques, using marks to depict detail and mood.
We will be studying electrical circuits, pulleys, levers and gears. Children will be working in groups to create their own theme park ride.
In MFL, children will be learning about musical instruments, giving opinions on types of music and preparing an end of year leavers presentation.
