The Year 6 Team
Welcome to Osprey Class
Another positive week in Osprey Class. After completing our history lessons about World War 2, our English text 'Rose Blanche' is the perfect choice and the work children have produced has shown this. We have discussed some serious topics together and the children have questioned and participated with a maturity above their years.
In maths, we have carried on our topic of 'The Four Operations' with this weeks focus being on division. The whole class are now masters of short division and are ready to move on to long division in the coming week.
Our guided reading book this term will be 'Goodnight Mister Tom' by Michelle Magorian and our class reader will be 'Holes' by Louis Sachar.
In our art lessons, we have been creating silhouettes of the London skyline in 1940 during the Blitz. We used craft knives to intricately cut out recognisable skylines and used chalk pastels to create the sky on fire.
In Science, we have been building a variety of circuits for our topic on electricity. The children have made series and parallel circuits and created an experiment to test how the thickness of wire affects the brightness of the light bulb.
PE lessons will be on Friday afternoon. We ask that children wear their PE kit to school including a tracksuit as the weather turns colder.
