Year 6 is led by Mike Corrie and Nat Norris and is supported by Caroline Hindle and Sue Storey, Sarah Clarke and Carole Quill who cover PPA time for Year 6 teachers on Thursday afternoons each week.
We are busy this term investigating and exploring Mayan civilisation, culminating in a variety of projects focusing on their chosen areas. We continue to study a range of texts in English including 'White Fang' and 'Way Home', where we will produce a piece of writing that demonstrates the children's creativity and flair using all the high level SPaG techniques they have learnt. In our Maths sessions we will continue to build on our understanding of mathematical skills through different methods. This includes Tenner Project and cross curricular investigations and maths investigation mornings.
In addition we have also started our Tenner Project where we have thought about products to make and sell, the focus will be on Eco friendly and sustainable products, we are hoping to make as much as possible from the three sales that will take place in the Spring Term:
Tuesday 5th February 2.45pm pick up at 3.45pm St Martin & St Mary's School
Wednesday 27th February 9.00am at The Lakes School main entrance
Tuesday 5th March 2.45pm pick up at 3.45pm St Martin & St Mary's School
We are also really excited to welcome Imran Kotwal who will be leading a workshop for the year 6 children on The Pilgrimage to Mecca.
All in all a full and exciting term with lots going on.
