Y6 Summer Term

Topic: We are covering two topics this half term, We will be looking at Climate change and how this affects our local area. We will then move on to study the amazing Ancient Greeks! Although Climate change is only a short topic for us we will study in detail how the area of Haughton Green and Denton is affected. We will also make weather vanes to study the wind. During our Ancient Greece topic we will also complete lots of art work and use clay to try and recreate some of the beautiful vases and sculptures they created.

English: This term we will be looking at a range of writing styles. Firstly, we will be writing a balanced argument about children using mobile phones. The children will explore both sides of the argument equally. Secondly, we will use the video Francis from literacy shed. Using this video we will create some setting descriptions and then move on to produce a newspaper report about the disappearance of the girl in the video.

In SPaG lessons we will be revising all areas of punctuation and continuing to work on all the aspects of grammar to make your written work better. Remember the children have weekly spellings to learn, using Spelling Shed.

Maths: In our maths lessons we will be covering the Year 6 objectives from the maths Curriculum. You will be continuing to work hard to achieve your targets in a variety of aspects of maths, trying to become more fluent and developing your reasoning and problem solving skills. We will be focussing on the using and applying aspect of maths through problem solving, reasoning, explaining and investigating.  You will also be continuing to learn all your times tables so that you know all the multiplication and division facts to 12 x 12 to become and taking part in the Battle of the Bands.

Science:
Classifying Living Things: In this unit children will learn how to classify living things using the major classification kingdoms. They will identify and describe the observable characteristics of a range of classification groups including micro-organisms, plants and animals. Children will make careful observations to identify the characteristics that help scientists classify all living things, such as whether a living thing has a backbone and how they reproduce. Children will also be able to use their observations to construct classification keys of increasing complexity. They will use evidence from their investigation to predict and investigate how to accelerate the rate of decay. We will complete this unit in the summer term.

Evolution and Inheritance: In this unit children will have worked towards answering the Quest question ‘How do living things evolve?’ They will have investigated how living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago. They will have had the opportunity to make a visit (real or virtual) to a Natural History museum and they will have constructed a geological timeline. Children will have identified how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution. They will have explored the principal of inheritance, recognising that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but that normally such offspring vary and are not identical to their parents. Children will have researched how plants and animals are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and they will have identified some beneficial adaptations that may lead to evolution. They will have explored natural selection through drama and designed their own species.

 

Computing– We will continue our work on coding, using the Scratch 3 program. We will also continue on creating and editing videos. Computing will also be used in a cross-curricular manner too in a variety of other curriculum areas to enhance learning. We will be using  Book Creator, Powerpoint, imovie and Keynote to present our work in other subjects in different ways.

Homework-
The children will continue to get English and maths homework every week. We will always set the homework on a Friday and it must be brought back into school by the following Wednesday. This can either be set on googleclassroom or paper copies are available. The children will also be bringing home their reading books every day and it is vitally important that they read every day. We are really working on the children’s comprehension skills so it would be great if you could ask them questions about their books every time you read with them.

We keep track of the homework and reading on charts in the classroom that are linked to the assertive mentoring scheme that we use in school. In order to achieve a green mark their homework MUST be completed and handed in on WEDNESDAY.

We will be doing P.E. on Tuesday, so the children need their kits in school on these days. Just a reminder that school P.E. kit comprises of a white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps and if P.E. is taking place outside and the weather is cold, the children are allowed to wear dark jogging bottoms and trainers. All jewellery must be removed for P.E.

We are looking forward to sharing all these exciting learning opportunities with you.  Don’t forget to keep in contact using Blogs!

We will be working hard on our writing every day and covering a variety of genres including journalistic writing, persuasive writing, character descriptions and writing for a purpose and an audience. We will be continuing to improve our SPAG skills throughout all aspects of our written work.

The Forest by Evie

The muffled voice amplified. We could tell they were livid. They were fizzing with hatred and furiosity .Was this the end to our ill-fated outbreak? Our legs were paralysed. The autumn breeze dissolved into the sweltering heat of a summer’s day. I felt sick with apprehension. Had their proficient scheme worked flawlessly? We had to vanish without a trace, before we were imprisoned. The night was unilluminated. We edged towards the window and climbed out. BOOM! CRASH! The menacing hurricane was engulfing the forest. How did this all begin? A faint pinkish glow was visible along the horizon towards the north.

It had only been a few hours ago, when I was playing manhunt with my friends. The sky was a vivid turquoise and the sun beamed happily into my emerald eyes. After I wandered into the forest for a concealed hiding spot, I came across a derelict deserted school. The school was unearthly; I was petrified. It was when I stumbled over a tree root, I heard an ear-splitting shriek. The moonlight settled into the eerie dusk. Someone was in mortal peril. Suddenly I heard something – something quite different from the engines in the city that roared like wild lions. It was a voice: a spine chilling voice- a voice of breath taking ice cold venom. The glinting moon rested in the lilac sky sleepily while the stars gathered around the moon. The twinkling lights reflected into my terror-stricken eyes Swiftly, I ducked behind a tree then crawled towards the school. Then out of the corner of my eye, I saw a girl. A girl who had blonde, wispy hair that reached just below her shoulders and pale white skin. Her wrists were grazed and bruised. We had to escape! We ran through the creepy woods. We had just found an ancient cabin to hide in, when we heard the spine- tingling voice again; it sounded furious. My hopes for escaping were fading away like a candle melting. The storm was diminishing our chances of escaping by blurring our vision. Cautiously, we crept forwards through the eerie sinister forest…

Welcome back 5T!

Welcome Back 5T!  

Happy New Year! Hope you’ve all had a brilliant holiday and are ready and raring to go again. We are really looking forward to this half term and we hope you are too! Spring Term 1 is a very busy one, so here’s what we’ll be up to!

English

As usual, we’ve got lots of exciting activities planned in English. Our focus is on writing a narrative. We will be basing our work around the text ‘Leon and The Place Between’ by Graham Baker-Smith. The focus of this book is a fantasy adventure which takes place when a boy called Leon visits the circus with his brothers and sister. We will be using information about the circus to write a balanced argument. We will be analysing different texts and video clips to help inspire our own writing, so that we can carry on being awesome authors too!

We will develop our SPAG knowledge through continuing to learn about the various word classes and different spelling patterns, including the Y5/6 word list. We will be focussing on how to apply all our SPAG work into our own writing.

Maths

We will continue to be in mixed groups across Y5 for maths. We will continue to develop our skills in the 4 operations, our understanding of Place Value, Decimals, Percentages and Fractions and Measurement. We will be focussing on the Using and Applying aspect of Maths through Problem Solving Challenges.

Please remember to carry on practising your times tables up to 12×12.

Aim to be a Times Tables Rockstar this half term if you’re not already!

Science

Our topic this half term is Properties of Materials.. We will be carrying out investigations to test materials to see if they are dissolvable and whether they are good insulators or conductors.

Topic

Our topic for the whole of this term is Grand Designs. We will be learning all about famous landmarks both in Great Britain and around the World!

PHSE

We will be introducing our new PHSE scheme ‘Jigsaw’ and discussing issues which are important to us and help us work together as a team.

Computing – Graphical Images

We will be using Sketch Map, Book Creator and Seesaw programs to design our own bridge structures. Children will be exploring drawings/illustrations representing both 2D and 3D worlds.  The children will need to think about who they are designing their building for and other elements such as what materials they might use.

 

PE

PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR PE KIT. Make sure you don’t get RED on your Assertive Mentoring!

School Council

At Corrie, our School Council is a vital part of our learning community. It is very important that the views and opinions of ALL children across our school are heard and represented. The School Council work hard to ensure that this happens. We usually meet every fortnight but sometimes more often if there is something urgent that we need to discuss.
Each class has a School Council Representative, who had to apply for the position and have an informal interview with the Y6 School Council Committee and Miss Turner.
Our School Council also has a Communications Committee, Investors In Pupils Committee and a KS1 Committee.
School Councillors need to have the following personal qualities so that they are:
• Reliable
• Responsible
• Friendly and approachable
• Good at listening to everyone
• Able to remember things
• Honest and sensible hardworking
These are the things the School Councillors needs to do:
• Attend meetings, turn up on time and be interested.
• Bring your book to the meeting if you are on the Committees.
• Listen to the views and opinions of the class and bring them to the meeting.
• Report everyone’s ideas and opinions even if they are not your own.
• Bring ideas to the meeting that will make the school a better place to be.
• Feedback information to your class – ask your teacher for a time to do this.
• Wear your badge so people know that you are the representative.
• Collect views of pupils from the Listening Bench in KS2 and Classes in KS1.
• Present some assemblies with support from Miss Turner.

Tudor Day

When it was Tudor day mistress Alice a rich Tudor lady told us all about the banquets and how to behave at one and what they would eat like swan and goose.
Jack a rich man told us all about if you went to court for committing a crime in Tudor days. For example trying to kill queen Elizabeth was treason. There were lots of activity’s like playing Tudor games, making a scroll and writing with a feathered pen and using it to-write our names on card.
Later in the day we did some acting and we learnt a Tudor dance we all stood in a large circle and went left left left right right right.
We also got given a long peacock feather to balance on our finger. We learnt all about Tudor cures like pox and in Tudor days doctors would wear a creepy bird mask with a very long beak. But they didn’t wear the mask to scare people the reason why doctors wore the mask so they get effected not the cure.Tudor day lasted all day and was an experience to see what it would be like in Tudor days.

Tudor Family Tree

Henry VII often known as Henry Tudor began the Tudor dynasty in 1485 following his defeat of Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth. He was king until 1509 when his son and the most well known Tudor king Henry VIII took over the thrown. Henry VIII ruled until 1547 and there were a further 4 Tudor monarchs before the end of the Tudor period. There were:-
 
Edward VI – he was king from 1547 to 1553. Edward was only 9 when he became king, he was Henry VIII son. He was a poorly child and died when he was 15.
 
Lady Jane Grey – Just before Edward VI died he gave the crown to Lady Jane Grey. she was a relative of Henry VIII’s sister but it was not popular with the public and she was only queen for 9 days. She was then imprisoned in the tower and killed at the age of 16.
 
Mary I-1553 to 1558 – Mary was Edward VI sister. She most famously attempted to turn England Catholic again and had many people executed that didn’t want to be catholic. This is how she got her nick name of Bloody Mary.
 
Elizabeth I – 1558-1603 She was the final Tudor Monarch. She never married. she died when she was 69 and was at that point the oldest England monarch ever to have reigned.
