Well done Y6 for creating and leading our liturgy for Y5 and parents. It went really well and gave us time to reflect out last topic. Here are some photos from the liturgy.
Here are some of the pictures from Hollowford. The rest will be following ASAP.
In English we will be focusing on a book called ‘The Jaguar Stones – Middleworld’. It is about a young boy who discovers that the Ancient Maya myths are real and that the world is on the brink of an apocolapyse. It is part of a trio of books, which hopefully the children could read after we have finished the first.
The science planning for year 6 can be found in the long term planning document which can be accessed by downloading the link above. The order of topics is:
- Classifying living things into the 5 kingdoms and investigating key features and characteristic of the 5 groups of vertebrates.
- Human biology and healthy living looking at harmful substances and their effects
- Evolution – how we know about it, the effects it has and how we can observe it.
- Light – what it is, how we see, reflection and shadow
- electricity – making and understanding circuits.
St Luke’s Charity event
Last year’s Y6 took part in a fund raising event for St Luke’s last year and managed to raise £1000. Hopefully this year we will join up with another charity to help raise money!
