Spring Term Quest

Our Spring Term quest is called 'Journeys.'  Throughout the quest we will be understanding on a number of journeys including the journey of blood around the body, the journey up a mountain as well as the journey through time of Ascot Race Course.  We also look forward on embarking on our own journeys including a trip and the journey of SATS preparation and thinking ahead to our journeys next year.

 

Below is an overview of the exciting learning we will be doing during our quest.

Class Texts

During the Spring Term our class texts will include: 

Journey to Jo'Burg - Beverly Naidoo 

Pig Heart Boy - Malorie Blackman 

We have class copies but you are welcome to purchase copies for your child.  Please make sure all personal copies are named!

Autumn Term Quest 

Our Autumn Term quest was  'Heroes and Villains.'  Throughout the quest we thought about what makes a true hero and what makes a true villain.  In our quest we had some Big Bang Moments including our trip to Engage Water sports, as well as making torches and periscopes.  

Below is a curriculum overview of the exciting learning Vultures completed during their Heroes and Villains quest.

Do you like our torches that we made in DT? We used our knowledge of electricity and circuits as well as light in science to design, plan and make our own torches to fit a design brief for a specific hero.

Our Class Charter

During transition day Mr Ridgway asked the children to select five adjectives from a Wordle that they would like to describe their time in Year 6.  We then collated these adjectives to form our charter:

Homework

Year 6 pupils receive homework on a Tuesday and a Friday each week.  The homework and the due date will be recorded in their planners.

Usually:

Homework given out on a Tuesday is handed in on a Friday.

and

Homework given out on a Friday is handed in on a Tuesday.

Pupils will also receive spellings on a Monday.  These spellings will correspond to a spelling objective that is being taught in class that week.  This spelling objective will then be tested the following Monday.

PE

PE is on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please ensure that your child wears their PE kit to school on these days.
