Welcome to Attingham Class
We hope you’ve had a great Summer holiday. Our term in Attingham Class will begin with the celebration of our school’s ‘Golden Jubillee’. This will include a look back at the history of the school and how it has changed over its five decades. Our focus will be taking a special interest in the 1970s - by researching pop culture and events of this decade. During the rest of the term we will be focusing on the Wrekin. This will involve a walk to the summit and geography studies about the hill, its history and surrounding areas.
During Literacy lessons we shall be looking at a number of genres, including: Myths and legends - the Wrekin giant, Journey stories - link to ‘Journey to the River Sea’ by Eva Ibbotson, Tourist Guides - linked to the Shropshire Hills, and poetry.
We shall focus, in Maths, on developing skills in place value, the four operations, statistics, and perimeter and area. The Year 6 pupils will be attempting ‘Fluent in Five’ maths activities every morning and will continue to develop their ‘Mastery’ and reasoning to gain an in depth understanding of number and problem solving.
In Science, our focus will be on the topics of ‘Evolution and Inheritance’ and ’Changing materials’. We will do this through research, as well as a number of exciting and interesting experiments.
PE will be on a Monday and a Friday. Children will be developing skills in multi-skills activities, dance, hockey and Netball.
Please ensure pupils have the correct PE kit on those days.
In ICT we will be investigating technologies in our lives as well as multi media software. The children will then use this multi media
software to create presentations link to science and geography.
In RE, we will be studying: the commitment that Muslims show through their religion, and the importance of Mary to Christians.
journeys around the world.
Our Darwin Values focus this term will be ‘’Changes’ and ‘Bounce-backabilty’. We want all of our pupils to become independent, self-motivated learners, and by working on these attributes we hope that the children will become more resilient.
