Class Teacher – Miss R. Patterson
Teaching Assistant – Mrs J. Small
Welcome to Class 6P
We are beginning our term by learning about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. As we start this topic, we will be writing applications to become a teacher of the Dark Arts at the famous Hogwarts, school of wizardry and witchcraft. We will study fantastical beasts, their physical appearance and qualities and will be creating animated beasts, which will cumulate in a Harry Potter evening of spells and magic on 7th February.
As Scientists we will be experimenting with electrical components. We plan to trap any potential burglars by creating sensor pads to sound alarms. In March, during our science week, we will take part in some mind-blowing experiments and finding creative ways to record our learning.
We will continue to develop our reading comprehension skills in English. It is particularly important that we read at speed. We will be setting up a lending library so that we can widen our reading opportunities; please encourage your child to read as much as possible.
In RE our topics are Sources, Unity and Death and New Life.
In Sources we will be investigating stories that are passed on in our families and will link this to a study of The Bible. In Unity, we will be learning about friendship and in Death and New Life, we will deepen our learning of Lent and Easter.
This is an important term and we will be developing resilience, in particular we will be developing the pace that we are working at and preparing ourselves so that we can confidently sit our SATs in May.
