Welcome to the home of the Prophets. This is where you will be able to find out about what Year 6 are getting up to. The Prophets class are lucky enough to work with a mixture of adults throughout the week including Mr Bell, Mrs Clarke, Miss Allen and Mrs Dougill.
Following on from our diary entries last term, the Prophets have started Autumn 2 by writing newspaper reports about the 'doodlebug' bombing of Lewisham High Street in London during the Blitz.
The Prophets are focusing on reading this year to get the children ready for the next step on their educational journey. Our expectation is that the children bring in their reading record everyday and read a minimum of 3 times a week.
This term we have been developing our long division and long multiplication skills. These formal written methods become increasingly important this year as they are involved in solving various problems and as we move towards SATs time.
Times table rockstars is a great way for your children to practise and improve their times table knowledge and we encourage the children to use it several times a week.
Our first topic during year 6 is World War 2. This is a topic particularly important in Lincolnshire, with so much of the county being involved in the farming effort and the deployment of bombers. We will be exploring the timeline of the war, evacuation, rationing and D-day amongst other things. The Prophets have loved learning about this topic with Mrs Dougill as well as our class reading book ‘D-day Dog’.
The Prophets will be developing their physics understanding even further this term as we progress into our light topic. We will be understanding how light travels and how we see things as well as exploring the reflective properties of materials.
In RE this term we will be delving into atheism to discuss the question 'do you have to believe in god to be good?' This will involve exploring different view points of the world as we focus on a humanism view, looking at some of the humanists that have influenced all of our lives.
On the 11th of November the Prophets led the remembrance service for the whole school as we remember all those who have fallen during wars and conflicts around the world. The assembly included readings and poetry which the children performed flawlessly from memory. The way in which the Prophets conducted themselves was incredible; we even received an email from a school visitor praising their display.
MacMillan Coffee Morning
Thank you to everyone that could attend the MacMillan coffee morning. The Prophets had a fantastic day helping run the highly successful event. It wouldn’t have been such as success without year 6, well done the Prophets.
