This is a very exciting term for year 6, with the SATs celebrations and the build-up for transitions to secondary school. Our learning this term is going to be based around our recent trip to Chessington and our topic is ‘Theme parks.’ Within this, we will be designing our own theme park and using maths skills to stick within a budget, ensure all rides and amenities fit within a given area and plan for running and launch costs. In writing we will be persuading people to visit our theme park and writing adventure stories using a theme park setting. In DT we are going to design and make a healthy meal to sell in one of the restaurants and design and make a ride. As well as this, we have decided to write our own performance this year so will begin working on that after half term. PE will be on a Tuesday and Thursday. Spelling tests will start again and take place on a Friday. For homework, children need to continue to use TimesTables Rockstars and read every night. This will be monitored weekly. For optional homework, children can research, design and build their own theme park using any materials you might have at home.
