We have got off to a flying start in year 6, the children have settled in well and are all working hard. We have now completed our introductory Superheroes topic and the children’s comic strips and costume designs are all displayed in our corridor for everyone to enjoy.
This week we have completed some END of year 6 tests to use as a baseline to see where the children are at and how far they need to go. I will share their results and the expectations in next months parents consultations.
The new topic ‘Around the World in ? Days,’ will commence next week and we have just watched ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ as a starting point. The children will be planning their own trip around the world, selecting countries they would like to visit and deciding which transport they would like to use. They will be locating places, calculating distances and journey times, working out time differences and learning about the different countries they visit. As part of the topic, the children will be designing and making their own mode of transport, so we would be grateful of any items that can be used to help make them! Thank you for your support.
