Owls News update Summer 2019
This summer term is extremely busy with Year 6 preparing for their move to secondary school, the school play, Sherlock and Cinders as well as sporting events; sports day, cricket tournament and rounders tournament, Tag rugby, golf and athletics competition. The children will also be completing their bicycle safety training. We will be going on trips out of school to; Carnforth and the climbing wall at Salt Ayre, a farm visit at Levens and the Leaders of Rotakids will attend a conference in Lancaster.
We will be beginning a new topic where we will be investigating ‘settlements’ and linking this learn about the UK and our identity. The children will visit Carnforth to develop their fieldwork skills including: map reading, data handling skills and statistical analysis. They will then be able to use the experiences from their recent residential visit to London to make comparisons.
In Literacy we will be focusing on Flashbacks using the Harry Potter books as a stimulus, to help us create our own flashbacks! We will also be looking at letter writing and hopefully linking this into our settlement topic.
In maths we will be continuing with mastering our maths skills, focusing on long multiplication and division, percentages and looking at statistics, which will link into our settlements topic.
In science we will be moving on from Classification to Evolution and Inheritance, focusing on the work of Darwin, Anning and Wallace. We will be identifying the features of animals which aides their survival and specific examples of Evolution.
The children will continue having weekly science, spelling and maths homework and will also need to learn their lines for the school play at the end of the school term.
