As part of our literacy unit 'The Journey', we have used our empathy and listening muscle to place ourselves in the characters shoes. This has helped us to write letters and poetry. Have a listen to some great examples below:
This term, as part of our literacy work, we have been enjoying a book called 'The Journey' by Francesca Sanna. This explores what it is like to have to leave everything behind and travel many miles to somewhere unfamiliar and strange. A mother and her two children set out on such a journey; one filled with fear of the unknown, but also great hope.
Using role play and our imagining muscle, we have already created artwork of valuable memories, composed poems and written letters in character. We can't wait to explore this book further.
This term, in SPAG ATTACK, we have been revising our knowledge of all the different types of nouns, pronouns, determiners and articles. We came across a really fun video song that we have been using to help us to remember what these words mean:
We had a brilliant day working with Mr Green. We made links with our scientific knowledge about adaptation to design bird feeders that are suitable for the birds living in the local area during the winter months.
Our Year 6 pupils successfully managed to 'Escape to Planet Zargoyle' by demonstrating a brilliant understanding of the skills and qualifications needed for different professions. We were inspired by their problem solving and reasoning skills and their ability to articulate their thoughts about the future. We are confident that you will all be successful in your future professions!
Welcome to Year 6!
We have planned a great year ahead and we can't wait to immerse ourselves in the fantastic topics that will be taking place in Morpurgo and Rowling.
