Our topic this half term is Fun in the Sun and to start this off all of year 6 went on a picnic in the local area. We had such fun eating different picnic food and playing games together. We had an amazing time at Dunstable Splash Park where we explored and played in the different water jets, fountains and hoses. We had our packed lunch which we ate in the cafe, after lunch we all chose a treat from the cafe. There is a super wooden play area next to the splash park and we had great fun climbing, swinging and sliding.
In English we are enjoying the story The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch. We have done roleplay pretending to be the lighthouse keeper and the seagulls. We all worked really hard to answer questions about the story and we all followed instructions to make a lighthouse.
We are looking forward to next half terms topic which is called Great, Great Britain; our curriculum maps will be coming home soon where you will be able to see our forthcoming learning.
Wow! What a busy half term we have had. In our Black Culture topic the children really enjoyed learning about Rosa Parks and they all did a fantastic job when role playing the story of Rosa on the bus. They all wrote their own dream in the style of Martin Luther King and they have experienced a range of music including African drumming, Motown, rap and Gospel.
In English the children have really enjoyed the story The Giant Jam Sandwich. They have ordered instructions, made up their own instructions and did some great work involving story maps.
We have had a great start to Autumn 2 so far! check out our photos below.
The second half of the Autumn term is super exciting with lots of learning activities to look forward to.
In English we will be reading the traditional tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and will be using our reading, writing, speaking and listening skills to carry out a range of activities such as character profiles, writing lists, making up a potion and role play. We are very lucky to have a theatre trip booked to go and see the Snow White pantomime. Then we will be doing our very own performance of the story which you will be invited to come and watch.
Our topic this half term is ‘Winter Wildlife. We will be learning all about different Winter wildlife animals, looking at their diet, habitats, appearance and features to help them survive.
The children and adults in Gold class are very excited about their new project which is to run a tuck shop for the rest of the school. We have already done our first trip to Asda to buy healthy snacks to sell. In Maths we worked out our prices and made price labels and posters. Please check on our web page regularly as photos of our tuck shop will be soon available for you to look at.
