Summer Term 6 Elm Class newsletter

Literacy: This term we are looking at stories by the same author and our chosen author is Julia Donaldson. We will be looking at the characters and comparing the stories.

During Healthy week we will look at making adverts to promote wearing sunglasses and sun hats during sunny weather. For our topic we will be creating shape poetry and newspaper reports.

We may also be working with an illustrator to create and illustrate our own book.

Maths: We are using this term to round up our learning and to start to conceal it. We have started by looking at our times tables and starting to learn them off by heart. We have been looking at our 2, 5, and 10s and also our 3 times tables!

We will also be using all of our valuable skills that we have learnt this year in problem solving and tasks.

Topic: Our topic this term is the Plague and the Great Fire of London. We will be following the Plague from 1665 to the end when the Great Fire of London happened in 1666. We will be comparing lives and streets back then to how we live now. We will also be looking at timelines and looking at how events laid out.

Science: This term we will be looking at Plants! We are going to be thinking about how we grow them, what we need to grow them, the different parts of a plant and hopefully growing some plants ourselves!

Art : In Art this term we are looking at some different artisits and their styles. We will be creating art using the different styles to make our work a bit different. We will also be looking at paints and colours and how they can help our work.

P.E: This will continue to be on Thursdays with Mrs Kerr and Mrs Maskell and Wednesdays with Mr Carpenter.
