Summer Term 2019
This term our topic is called London Calling! In preparation for our residential visit to London – we are studying Britain since 1940; looking at how our history has developed over time as well as the unique history and culture of London as our capital city.
In English we are reading Harry Potter, a true British Classic! We are using the series to produce different genres of writing; including our very own Howlers.
In Maths we are focusing on applying our reasoning skills, with lots of cross curricular links; including budgeting for our trip.
For homework; we had to produce project based work related to the topic.
We even had afternoon tea with homemade scones – carefully crafted by one of our classmates.
This term our topic is The Victorians. Year 6 are very excited to start off with a trip to Beamish – where we will experience life as a Victorian school child for the day! Watch this space for pictures.
During this topic we will also have some special visitors from the University of Cumbria who are coming to school to run workshops in class about Carlisle in the Victorian Era.
In English we will be using the novel Street Child by Berlie Doherty, fitting in well with our Victorian Theme. During our Maths sessions we will focus on a range of number based problems, aiming to develop our mastery skills across the four operations.
Miss Smith is our teacher this year – and always available if you have any further questions. Speak to a member of staff today to find out how to view our ClassDojo page where we post daily updates of our curriculum work.
