Welcome to Ms Pateman's class!
Our first topic is... Blast from the Past!
We will be learning in history what it was like for children during World War Two. What was the Blackout? Why did the Battle of Britain happen? How did families cope during the Blitz?
In science we will be learning about light and how we see - we will then understand why the Blackout caused problems for people on the Home Front. We will be designing and making shelters to test strength and water resistance in DT.
In English we will be writing adventure stories set in the time of the Blitz. Our whole class reading novel will be Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll.
In maths we will make sure we have good foundations by exploring place value then we will move on to written and mental methods for the four rules of number.
PE will be gymnastics and dance on Mondays and indoor/outdoor games on Thursdays.
Our Year 6 swimming slot is Tuesday afternoon.
