IT'S A DISASTER!
Throughout the Spring term we will be looking at a range of 'Natural Disasters', from tornadoes and earthquakes to tsunamis and wild fires. We will focus on the reasons why these events occur, looking at the geology of the land, as well as looking at where in the world they occur. We will also be thinking about the impact these natural disasters have upon the communities; the people, the animals, the buildings and the natural environment.
In English we will be reading the fabulous spy thriller..."Stormbreaker" by Anthony Horowitz. We will be working on a range of different writing tasks, improving our descriptive writing, developing our persuasive work and presenting our very own self-designed spy gadgets!!! ('Q' would be very proud of us!)
We'll be looking all aspects of LIGHT in the first half term; considering how lights travels, how we see things, how light refracts and investigation the visible spectrum
Spring term is a very important time for all of us in Year 6 and we begin our journey towards the SATs.
English: Our English focus this term is the 'horror fiction' genre!
We will be reading -
Cirque du Freak by Darren Shan &
A range of short stories by Anthony Horrowitz
We will be learning how to write persuasively and we will be writing our own horror stories and learning how to write a story with a flashback! We will also be comparing the text with the film.
In November, we will be working on poetry. Writing firework poems and reading war poems before writing our own poems of Remembrance to also link with our World at War history topic..
