We are the fantastic Sydney Opera House. We are 23 bubbly, fun and energetic Year 6 children who love to learn! This is our last year at Dovedale but it’s going to be the best ever because we are hardworking and believe in ourselves!
In English this term we are reading ‘Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty as part of our topic on ‘Rich and Poor’. We will be writing in role, producing diary entries, letters, writing a persuasive argument and a short adventure story.
In Maths, we will be looking at fractions, decimals and percentages.
Our topic this term is ‘Rich and Poor’. We will be looking at the differences in the lives of the rich and poor throughout the ages of British history.
In science we are learning all about electricity. We will be creating circuits and learning how to draw these using scientific symbols. We will be investigating how components can change according to the number of volts and we will be looking at how to make breaks in a circuit using switches. As part of our topic, we will use our skills to design the electricity in a rich man’s house – including a burglar alarm!
In French this term we will be looking at adjectives and antonyms and how these change when used with masculine and feminine nouns.
We will be using green screens this term to create our very own ‘Horrible Histories’ programme on the Rich and Poor.
Indoor PE will be gymnastics and will be on a Tuesday afternoon. Outdoor PE is netball and will be on Wednesday afternoon. Don’t forget your kit!
We had a visit from the illustrator Lynne Chapman who taught us how to draw different facial expressions!
