Year 6 - Mr. Rowlinson

Lent 2

In class, we are learning about: 

R.E.: we are continuing our Unity topic, with a focus on the Eucharist and how we relate with one another.    The big question for this topic is: why are we happiest when we are united?

Topic: World War II: we will be concluding our topic in the Pentecost (Summer) term.

Maths: we are revising all of the topics we have learned at primary school and practising different types of questions.

English: our class book is The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave.  We have paused the story and taken on the role of journalist following the death of a young girl.

We are also consolidating our grammar, punctuation and spelling knowledge and fine-tuning our reading comprehension skills.

Science: our topic is Electricity and Light.  We have been asking ourselves the question, "What is Light?"

P.E.: we are perfecting our strategies and skills in the game of tag rugby.

Computing: we have designed and shared an online survey about e-Safety with all of KS2.  Our results can be found on the e-Safety page of the school website.
