Year 6: Everest Class

Welcome to the last half term for this year.

Both a very happy and sad (as they reach the end of their time at St Pauls) time for the children, having finished SATS they will be working really hard at rehearsing and performing the end of year musical. They will be performing The Wizard of Oz. The performance will be held on Thursday July 19th. More details will be available as we get closer to the date. We will be spending a lot of time preparing and rehearsing for the production to make sure it is as good as it possibly can be. Any help that can be offered will be gladly received, and I’m sure that we will be asking for support with producing the show.

In writing we will be writing a short story, a persuasive letter and a piece including dialogue based upon short film clips from the Literacy shed. We are going to use Wonder for the last 4 weeks to support both guided reading and writing.

In maths we will be focusing on challenges and reasoning, that utilise the skills that the children have learnt over the course of the last 6 years.

For topic we are continuing to study Ancient Egypt. This will involve looking at the archaeologists who studied Egypt, what they found and where they found it. The children will be researching mummification and the variety of gods that Ancient Egyptian people believed in.

For science & PHSE we are going to look at food technology, creating a healthy diet, healthy relationships and how we develop as young adults. This will involve physical and emotional changes within ourselves, and how we manage relationships in a healthy and successful fashion.

In computing we will be looking at blogging, how it works and how to blog.

In art we will be using the work we did last term, to finish making own sculpture using mudroc and painting the end product.

In RE our topic is Hinduism and the comparisons with Christianity. This will involve a visit to the Hindu temple in Neasden.

For PE we are studying athletics, specifically running and how to improve.

Please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit for these lessons, PE is on a Friday. If your child is not participating in PE, please provide a letter with reasonable detail.
