Michael Morpugo Class (Year 6)

This term our topic has been Black History and we have researched significant figures in the Civil Rights Movement and produced some wonderful biographies about Martin Luther King. In Maths we have studied place value, negative numbers and addition and subtraction. In DR we have studied the book ‘Brown Girl Dreaming’ and focused on Prediction, Questioning and Inference. In Science we had lots of fun re-enacting the process of evolution and have designed our own evolved creatures.

Next term our topic will be the Norman Conquest. In Writing we will produce an information text on Norman Castles and use the illustrated book Lady of Shallot to write poetry. In Maths we will further develop our skills by studying the four operations and fractions. In History we will learn more about the Battle of Hastings and children will design and create their own 3D Norman Castles.
