Summer Term 1
We have had another very busy term!
Year 6 have been busy preparing for SATs and did us proud during the actual test week. Everyone tried their very best and we are proud of you all!
Year 5 continued to work extremely hard on their maths and English with Mrs White in the mornings.
In English Year 6 wrote their own stories based on ‘The Balaclava Story’ by George Layton. This is a story set in the 1950s and features a boy who wanted a balaclava more than anything - and the consequences of his desperate attempts to get one.
Year 5 wrote warning tales with Mrs White. They used some common fairy stories for their initial inspiration.
Our topic for this term was Light. We have explored how we see things, how shadows are formed and the difference between transparent, translucent and opaque materials. We presented our findings in a variety of ways, using iPads and Netbooks for research.
