Welcome to Ms Pateman's class!
Our topic for the first part of the Spring term is called 'Sh! Top Secret!' and is centred around spies and detectives. Year 6 will read spy fiction and use these as a base to write their own adventurous spy story. They will use scenarios from this fiction to learn to debate and write argument texts. As spies have to be super fast, super agile and therefore super healthy, Year 6 will be learning all about our bodies - how to keep them healthy, how our circulatory system works and the effect of drugs and alcohol on our different body systems. In art we will be creating disguises through exploring Picasso's abstract art and in Geography we will be learning to read maps of different scales.
Our computing area this half term is online safety and our PSHE will be centred around building achievable goals.
PE will be gymnastics (indoor on Tuesdays) and games (outdoor on Fridays). Our Year 6 swimming slot is Thursday mornings.
