Our theme this half term has been “The Media” and the children have been researching the day they were born to find news items related to the year or date of their birth. They have also enjoyed using digital video cameras to film a news report. They are currently learning to use editing software and add sound into their reports. We are hoping to post some of these when they are eventually ready! Now we are planning and researching a documentary style programme about their choice of subject, including Charles Dickens, the “Titanic”, local history and history of Victorian schools. After half term our theme will be change and growth.
We are planning to post Maths and English homework on the webpage. Don’t forget; signed Reading Records and Spelling books are due in on Monday, English on Tuesday and Maths and signed Times Tables books on Thursday, please. Don’t forget to play “Mathletics”.
We really enjoyed making kites on our “Chinese New Year” day and Year 5 and 6 were brilliant helping their “Chatting Chums” from Apple and Cherry class to make and fly their kites.
Information evenings for parents about Year 6 SATS and puberty will be coming up next half term, so please search your child’s bag for letters and your phones for texts.
