Welcome to Year 6!
Hello Year 6!
It's Summer Term - your final term at primary school! Our topic for this term is the Edwardians and we will be learning lots about what life was like during this time period as well as how it links with Mary Poppins.
We are continuing to have PE everyday at the moment, so you might want to make sure that you have a pair of trainers in your locker each day. Also, the weather will (hopefully) start to getting sunnier and hotter this term, so make sure you have things like sunhats and suncream if you need them. We will still be going on a walk each Thursday so you can bring in walking shoes or wellies if you want to.
There are so many exciting things to look forward to this term and I can't wait to make lots of fun and happy memories that you can take with you to secondary school.

This week, we are going to be learning about measurement and how to convert between different units such as miles to kilometres.
Our new genre in English is persuasive speeches. We are going to be writing speeches from the point-of-view of a suffragette and will be reading them out to the rest of the class at the end of the week.
In our guided reading sessions, we are going to be continuing to read our book Wonder and answering some comprehension questions based on the text.
Non-Core: History and Art
This week, we are learning about women's suffrage at the beginning of the 20th century. At the start of the week, we'll be learning about who the suffragists and the suffragettes were, focusing on Emmeline Pankhurst and Millicent Fawcett in particular. Then, the children will be making their own protest signs to accompany the speeches they're writing in English. They will be using printing techniques to create their signs.
We had lots of fun during Immersion Week! To kick-off our Edwardians topic, we made kites, baked jam tarts and went on a picnic to Shottesbrooke Manor.
