Year 6 News
At the end of last half term, we finished our persuasive speeches, and it was lovely to have volunteers from home to share and record their persuasive contributions about why schools should adopt non-uniform and how milkshakes should be encouraged in schools rather than milk. We started the new half term by finishing our RE unit on Islam and the 5 Pillars. We have enjoyed discussing how Muslims show their commitment towards their God and have been impressed by the responses and depth of discussion from these lessons. This half term we look at Easter and why Christianity is important more than 2000 years after the birth of Jesus. In literacy we have started our new unit based on Kensuke’s Kingdom and have seen some wonderful written work from this including the use of personification and colons to introduce lists. During topic last half term, we created a recreation of ‘Hokusai Wave’ using a watercolour wash and mark making inspired by Gustav Klimt. We are thrilled with the news of those at home joining us this half term and can’t wait to celebrate more success together.
