We have had a very busy half term in Year 6 on the run up to Easter.
Throughout the term, the children have been reading the book ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar and used this to inspire their writing. The children have worked hard in preparation for the SATs next half term and we are extremely happy with their progress in all areas of maths, reading and SPAG.
Throughout the term, we looked at parliament, as part of our Great British Values focus. We hired a parliament box and dressed up as MP’s in robes and wigs, before researching the key items and aspects of parliament.
The class have continued to work closely with Hopewood Park this term, as they re-visited the bulbs they planted in November at St. Paul’s Church. During the afternoon, the children worked with the residents to complete a variety of labyrinth activities, before tucking into juice and biscuits in the church. The bulbs the children planted were flourishing and looked beautiful in the March sun!
Year 6 were also lucky to visit the Mayer’s parlour before his term ends and watched the ‘Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’ at the Sunderland Empire, to end the term.
