Next week, the children will be reviewing column subtraction in Maths, and writing their own argument text in Literacy, based on the film Aladdin. We will be concluding our work on Lawrence of Arabia in History, and presenting our research on ‘Light’ to Year 1.
Initially, we will start with our Arts Week program. We are really excited this year to be using the book, ‘The Lost Words’ as inspiration for our creative work. This wonderful book was the source of inspiration for this summer’s BBC Proms, and we are looking forward to seeing the children develop as artists. As part of Arts Week, each child will either be travelling to the Bournemouth Natural Science Museum for a guided workshop, or working with a local willow sculptor in school.
Our first topic is ‘Arabian Nights’, based on the life and times of Lawrence of Arabia, and his role in shaping the British Empire and the First World War. In History, the children will compare his life during the war in the Middle East, to the life he led back home in Dorset. Linked to this, we will also spend time exploring the region and key landmarks in greater detail in our Geography lessons, as well as exploring the manner in which light travels in Science. In English, the children will be learning to write creatively and composing their own persuasive argument texts.
We know many of you will be wondering how best to support your child through Year 6. All we ask is that they are reading every day at home, practising their times tables on Times Table Rock Stars, and completing their homework on time. I hope they are looking forward to Year 6, and for making their final year at Kingsleigh a positive one. Of course, if you have any questions, please come in and see us.
Thanks, the Year 6 team.
