Term 5

Welcome back to Term 5! Summer Term 1!!! 


In History, we will be going to be learning about Crime and Punishment through the ages. In the Eagles class, we will will learn about the broad trends of crime and punishment, we will look at what crime and punishment was like in the Roman period, the Anglo-Saxon and Viking era, the Medeival and Tudor periods, all the way up to the early modern period and present day. We will kick start the topic with a crime and punishment murder mystery day where the children will get to dress up. This will be a very exciting topic for the Eagles! 


This term, we will be continuing our Geography unit where we work to answer the big enquiry question of: What is the true human impact on our planet? We will carry out this topic whilst focusing closely on the continent of Africa. We will explore climate, biomes, develop our locational knowledge of the world, investigate food and water distribution on the health of nations, compare the UK to Africa, explore habitats and debate about how us, as humans, negatively and positively impact the planet. A very exciting topic for sure! 


In Maths, we will continue to consolidate all that we have learnt so far in Year 6 in the run up to our assessments - week commencing 9th May. Maths Boosters will run until the week before.


In Science, we will begin our final Science unit in Year 6 which is on Evolution and Inheritance. We will be exploring how living things have changed over time, we will explore how living things produce offspring of the same kind and identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways.


In English this term we will be starting our new class read called Kick by Mitch Johnson. We will be writing numerous pieces of writing this term but our first piece will be inspired by this new book. We will also be using a range of short clips this term to inspire us with different pieces of writing - we look forward to sharing them with you all. 


In RE this term we will be learning about Good and Bad times. This topic will involve us thinking about life and death as well as exploring how different religions see and think about these events. 




PE in Term 3 will be on Wednesday and Friday. Our sessions on a Friday will be with the Welland Dance Academy so bring your dancing shoes Eagles!
