Sydney Opera House

 

 

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!

 

 

SATs is finally almost over except for the writing!  The children were all amazing and worked extremely hard.  Now the real fun begins with forest schools, the end of year performance, transition days and all with just seven weeks left!  Where has the time gone?

 

 

In English this term we will be writing a letter of complaint to the Right Honourable Damian Hinds to complain about Year 6 having to do SATs.  We will also be creating our own quest stories, looking at how we can create endearing anti-heroes and exciting settings.

 

In Maths, we will be looking at Fibonacci and how we can find maths in nature.

 

Our topic this term will continue with the World Cup.  We will be investigating all about Russia where the competition will be held.

 

In science we are learning all about the circulatory system.  The children will be investigating the 3 main parts: the heart, lungs and the blood vessels.

 

In French this term we will be looking at places and how to ask for directions.

 

We will be creating a presentation on Russia using keynote on the ipads.

 

Outdoor PE will be athletics and football on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.  Don’t forget your kit!

 

 

Here's a sneaky peek at what we've been up to...
No snow was going to cancel our World Book Day, so we held it on Thursday 9th March instead!  Here are our Book Potato Characters...with the winner Daniella Brear's 'Where's Wally'.  Well done to all!
We have been reading 'Street Child' as part of our literacy work this term. 
This week we've been creating lamps, doorbells, fans and burglar alarms!  If anyone needs a good electrician, Sydney Opera House are your guys!
For our topic Rich and Poor, we have been looking at how the rich people in Tudor times liked to display their wealth in portraits.  Look carefully at all the gold, silks and jewellery!
We have been studying the artist Andy Warhol and learning about volcanoes!  Here are some of our amazing drawings...

We had a visit from the illustrator Lynne Chapman who taught us how to draw different facial expressions!
