Summer 2. 

Literacy:

This half term we will be reading ‘Wonder’ by R.J. Palacio, discussing the themes, feelings and issues that arise throughout the text before producing writing based upon the story.

We will be finishing our topic about the book ‘Tuesday’ by David Wiesner and, using our knowledge of text types, writing play scripts, news reports and adverts based on it.

Drama and Speaking & Listening will be a major focus for Year 6 this half term, as we rehearse our Summer production of The Wizard of Oz.

Maths:

This half term, we will be running our Year 6 Business Project. Using our knowledge of number, we will be solving real life problems involving money. We will set prices, thinking about profit margins, and accurately calculate any change that is needed within a sale.

 

Topic:

From our work on the book ‘Tuesday’ by David Wiesner, we will be continuing to create various art work before moving on to producing eye-catching posters and props for our Summer production.

During Healthy Week, we will be learning about puberty in our Science lessons as well as learning about how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

In Computing, we will be creating animated PowerPoint presentations on our memories of Elm Wood.

Mindfulness colouring will also be a focus for Year 6 this half term.

P.E / Games:

During this half term, we will be outside (weather permitting) developing our rounders and cricket skills - please can your child have their games kit in school on a Wednesday.
