Welcome to Summer 2, the last ever term of primary schooling for our current cohort of Year 6 children!
We look to our oldest children to show the very best of themselves as they complete their time at Thorne Brooke Primary School, acting as role models to all of the younger children. We still have lots of exciting learning left and we hope that all the children will continue to enjoy our topic – Marvellous Monarchs. Early in the term, we will be visiting Gainsborough Old Hall, where we will investigate Tudor life, up close and personal!
We will be getting well and truly stuck into our topic, ‘Marvellous Monarchs, a History-based topic, where we will be investigating the Tudors and Stuarts, looking at the amazing changes, events and discoveries from that fascinating era.
As readers, we will be researching many aspects of life from the Tudor and Stuart eras, reading a variety of reports, information texts and even some diary entries.
As writers, we will produce reports, biographies, diary entries and information texts, looking to include the grammar and punctuation we have learned and refined throughout year 6.
As mathematicians, we will be developing our reasoning and investigative skills, looking through a variety of topics. We will focus on many ‘real-life’ examples.
As scientists, we will consider how Science changed in the times of the Tudors and Stuarts.
As Geographers, we will be looking at the ‘New World, discovered by explorers in the time of the Tudors and Stuarts.
As amateur sports people, we will be developing a variety of skills through team games, looking at teamwork and tactics, and we will begin to develop our athletic skills as the term progresses.
As users of I.C.T., we will continue to develop our skills with coding and look to refine our research skills.
As artists, we will be refining our sketching skills and producing portraits and landscapes.
As responsible citizens, we will consider our environments and how we can care for them. We will consider our responsibilities.
As the weather improves, please ensure the children have appropriate P.E. kit for the (hopefully) warmer weather. P.E. is on Wednesdays and Fridays, and the children should always have their black shorts, white T-shirt and their trainers on those days. It is advisable that thy have a water bottle in school so that they can take it outside for the P.E. sessions.
Thank you again for all your support. Summer 2 is often an emotional times as the children reflect on their time with us, and look towards their futures. As always, we know that Year 6
will rise to meet every challenge and do us all, and themselves, proud!
Mr. Thomas and Mrs Stent
