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.
In English this term, we began developing our writing through persuasion, creating a persuasive advert for a new product and a persuasive letter. Since then we have linked our writing to our World War 2 topic and have been writing diary entries from the perspective of evacuated children, using The Chronicles of Narnia as a stimulus.
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.
Our maths this term has been all about place value and addition and subtraction. This has involved exploring negative numbers and positive numbers up to 10 million, including 3 decimal places.
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 have been exploring the world of electricity in science this term. We have been learning about electrical symbols and how to draw accurate circuit diagrams. This information has led to us planning and executing experiments about brightness and voltage.
In RE this term our children have been learning about what a loving and holy god is like through the exploration of readings from the bible. This has been linked to our value of creativity for term 1 and the stories of creation.
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.
