Week beginning 26 September 2022.
We have continued with World War 2 in Topic and have looked at rationing and how difficult it was to feed a family during the war. Our Year 6s are really enjoying this topic and we look forward to the upcoming 'Make do and mend' where we will be learning how to sew.
We are enjoying the book Holes in English and have written a letter as if we were Stanley Yelnats. We will post some of these next week.
We continue with classification in Science and will be looking at how to classify different organisms.
We read The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse. We chose our favourite quote and illustrated it before finishing it in watercolours.
Week of 19 September.
Year 6 have been working on WW2. This week, we covered what it would have been like to be an evacuee. We considered what evacuees would have taken with them and wrote a postcard home conveying the emotions that the evacuees may have felt. Next week we will be focusing on rationing and trying to plan a weekly menu for a family.
In English, we have started a new novel, Holes. We have been writing descriptive paragraphs and making predictions based on the beginning of the story. For the remainder of this half term, we will continue to focus on this text, using it to inspire the children to write in a range of styles.
