Yr 6 Mrs Dudley
Our topic for spring term 1 is ‘Hola Mexico!’
During this topic, we will be investigating the culture and history of Mexico, as well as comparing it to the U.K. We will read Holes by Louis Sachar and write some newspaper reports and letters inspired by it. In R.E., we will be investigating how different faith supports some people in difficult times (with a particular focus on the Day of the Dead festival). In art, we will find out about the work of Frida Kahlo and use it to inspire our own self-portraits and in DT, we will be designing food for our own fiesta. Our science will focus our learning on the heart and circulatory system.
Our library time continues to be on a Friday which allows us time to quiz and collect new reading books for the weekend. Just a gentle reminder that children should be reading their AR books every night and quizzing at least once a week. Please ensure you and they are writing in their reading logs at least three times a week. I take these in on Wednesdays to look at.
Now we are in year 6, we need to be taking more responsibility for completing any home discovery journal tasks, practising spellings and bringing in our kits on appropriate days.
P.E – Tuesday afternoons with Mrs Henry.
Outdoor learning – Wednesday morning with Mr Ball.
Spanish – Thursday afternoon with Senora Collier.
