This term we are working on: -
Shaking Things Up!
This half term we our focusing on Geography. We will investigate patterns of earthquakes, mountains and volcanoes. We will explore the different climate zones of the world. We will find out about where natural resources are found. We will look at the location of major mountain chains of the world.
After half term we will have a Design Technology focus. We will find out about how one of the biggest challenges in earthquake zones is to create buildings that can withstand the shake of an earthquake. We will explore different ways to create buildings and strengthen and stabilise them.
We will finish with the Great Bridge Challenge - to build a suspension bridge that is at least half a metre in length. The winner will be the team with the best designed and strongest bridge!
For the first three weeks of this half term will be going swimming every morning.
Once this has finished, our PE lessons will be Gymnastics on a Tuesday afternoon and Athletics on a Friday afternoon but please make sure your PE kit is in school all week.
Now that the majority of their curriculum is almost done, homework will be issued on a need to do basis, linked to our production and Y6 activities There will still be an emphasis on the children reading and remembering to take their Renaissance reading quizzes!
If you have any concerns, or question, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can be reached through Class Dojo or our class e-mail account ( firstname.lastname@example.org), or the school telephone number. We are usually in the classroom most days after school , or from 8.40am in the morning.
