Autumn term – Hero’s and Villains
Throughout this year, we will be working with Year 5 in our English and Topic lessons. The children have already made an impression start in their new topic ‘Heroes and Villains’. They will be learning about mood, line and colour in art before moving on to learn about, and create, a piece Pop Art based on the work of artist Roy Lichenstein. In English, we will be reading The Prisoner of Azkaban to inspire their writing. They are currently busy learning how to convert a screenplay to narrative. The children will also be entering the exciting world of Quidditch as they learn how to be a sports journalist reporting on the exhilarating game from J K Rowling’s wizarding world.
Further details about Year 6
What a super start to the year! Year 6 have settled into their new class and are already working hard and showing an amazing work ethic.
Our guided reading book is also The Prisoner of Azkaban by J K Rowling. The text will give the class ample opportunities to discuss the themes of friendship, justice and morality. In Science the children will be studying the heart and circulation. They will have the opportunity to dissect a lamb’s heart, make a model of blood and complete a study into the effects of exercise on the heart. Our RE lessons will be looking at People of God and asking how can following God bring justice and freedom.
This term, we are very excited to be visiting The Harry Potter Studios, The Trenchard Museum in Halton for a STEM related day and a trip to the theatre. In addition, Year 6 will be planning and running their own games at the Christmas Fayre and have the usual Christmas activities to look forward to. It is going to be fantastic!
