PE in Year 6 will be taught on a Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child wears their PE kits to school on these days.

Monday – Hockey

Wednesday – Invasion Games

Our Term 4 Topic is:

What was the theatre like in Elizabethan England?

In our enquiry this term we will focus on the world of William Shakespeare, what it would have been like to live in London in this period, why his writing is still remembered and his legacy on English literature. We will be delving into the play Romeo and Juliet, looking at the original playscript as well as using more modern film versions to bring the story to life for the children. In science we will be identifying and naming the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood. We will recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way our bodies function too. In DT we will be carrying out some Tudor cooking recipes and decide if food was healthier 500 years ago! In computing we will focus on blogging and in PE we will be starting to learn various invasion games and hockey.

Our core text for Term 4 is

Daisy First Aid Training

On Friday 22nd Years 4, 5 and 6 underwent a training session in the school hall on first aid training. The children were able to practise CPR on the dummies and have a refresher course on what they had covered last year. It was a lot of fun and might even save a life!

An Easter Murder Mystery

On Wednesday 20th March Stars class walked to St Peter’s and St Paul’s Church to take part in a murder mystery following the events of Easter and the death of Jesus. The children investigated four crime scenes and had to solve the mystery. We were also very fortunate that the clock face was being re-painted and the children were able to sign the back of the clock before it was once again raised into the tower. Who knows how long it will be before it is taken down again and our names read!
