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!


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 perimeter, area angles and shape.


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 light.  We will be investigating how we see things and how light travels.  We will also be looking at reflection and refraction and colour of light.


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.


Outdoor PE will be tennis and will be on a Tuesday afternoon.  Indoor PE is dance and will be on Wednesday afternoon.  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!
