Medium Term Plans 2019/2020

 

Dear parents, We all know how important reading is in terms of developing our vocabulary, understanding of the world, our imaginations and our writing skills. We might know it's good for us but, like exercise, how many of us actually do it?? With the aim of generating a greater love of and excitement in books, please see below our top 100 reads before a child leaves year 6. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry whilst others will make you think about the world around you. We are sure that somewhere on this list will be a book your child won't be able to put down - and if there's more than one then even better! We will be asking your children to choose a book from this list to read for pleasure and to let us know when they have completed it - they can then choose another! Who will (genuinely) read the most on this list? Now it's over to you...Enjoy!

6th February 2020 This afternoon 6R took advantage of the fine weather to go outside to collect a variety of leaves to study and draw. As part of our classification topic in Science, pupils study the characteristics of various living things, including plants. Having chosen their leaves from the school grounds, pupils had to study them closely and then draw them to the best of their ability. Prior to our collection, we discussed what we mean by botanical drawings, what the science of botany is, why these drawing might be important and looked at some amazing examples of botanical drawings. Some of the pupils drawings will be shared with you in the near future.

SCIENCE On Thursday 30th January, Year 6 made scientific classification both fun and relevant by asking themselves yes/no questions to classify a variety of sweets. The children managed to hold off eating the 'evidence' until the end of the lesson!

MUSIC Since the beginning of the year, Year 6 have been learning to play the opening bars of Peer Gynt by Grieg. We have been playing on both keyboards and glockenspiels and there has been a noticeable improvement as the weeks have progressed!

Monday 16th & Tuesday 17th December 2019 Over the last couple of days, Year 6 have been putting their design skills to the test to plan, create and build their own Greek temples. The results were pretty impressive as you will see, but first...... The Planning

Pupils had to think carefully about their measurements in the planning stage, as well as the tools they would be using and how they could achieve the end result they were wanting. Following the planning stage came the creation and building..........

After the building, we had the finished temples! All pupils then had to write an evaluation, comparing their initial ideas with the end result and thinking about what went well and what they could improve upon in the future. It was a great way to finish off our Ancient Greece topic and a creative way to finish the term.

Today (12.12.19), 6R created their own Christmas lanterns using jam jars, tissue paper, white paper and coloured paper - and of course their imaginations and design skills! They have all been issued with tealights to get the full effect at home when it gets dark. Hopefully, some of the children will take photos so we can see what the lanterns look like in operation!

On Tuesday 19th November, year 6 visited the British Museum in central London. The purpose of the trip was to support our learning for our topic of Ancient Greece. Although there were lots of fantastic things to see and learn about, we focused on those galleries relevant to our topic and saw fine examples of Ancient Greek pottery, coins and stonework, including the Parthenon Friezes. Our time in the museum was cut somewhat short by a fire alarm, but all the pupils behaved very well and were incredibly sensible. Really well done Year 6!

During week beginning 11th November, 6R spent time learning a little bit about World War One and what life would have been like for the soldiers fighting in the trenches. At the end of the week they were all asked to write an acrostic poem using the words POPPY, SOLDIER or REMEMBRANCE. Below are photos of some of the examples but all pupils produced some amazingly descriptive and emotive poetry. Please feel free to come in on a Wednesday afternoon to see your child's work.

Today 6R practised their rounding and adjusting skills through a game called Four in a Row. There were some tactical strategies applied - Toby! - and this proves maths can be fun!!

21/10/19 Today, 6R investigated the impact of exercise on our bodies by checking our pulse rates at rest, after 1 minute of exercise and then after 2 minutes of exercise. We certainly had fun trying to find our pulses in the first place! This investigation links to our science topic - the circulatory system - where we have recently been learning about the importance of blood as a transport system, and the importance of red blood cells in carrying oxygen to where our bodies need it.

Over the last few days, Year 6 have been considering what constitutes a balanced argument - its features, structure and the language we need to use to both link our paragraphs together, but also how we can link our sentences within a paragraph to form a cohesive piece of writing. To aid our understanding, we conducted a class debate based on a question linked to our class text, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief - Should demi-gods be admitted to Glebe Primary School?. Below are some photos that were taken during the debate.

On Monday 30th September, Year 6 got the coach to Rayleigh Megazone to take part in workshops designed to keep them safe. The pupils were organised into 3 groups and rotatated through the topics, which included: The different types of relationships we form during our lives from family to friends to relationships and what good relationships 'look like' Fire Safety Gangs and what does this term mean It was a very useful and informative afternoon and all pupils who attended will be given a certificate for taking part.

23.09.19 Today year 6 were practising their balances during PE. First of all we tried balancing on both feet with our eyes closed and were surprised to find how much we wobbled! We then moved on to finding separate balances we could do, working with a partner to see how these separate ones could be joined together. We will be developing these balances more next week.

10th September 2019 - Year 6 have started their maths learning this year recapping place value. We have looked at the value of digits within a number up to 10,000,000 and today we were working with number lines to recognise how numbers relate to each other and how they can be compared.
