Welcome to Helsinki Class
Spring Term 2
Spring term has been an exciting but hard term for year 6. We had a wonderful time in the Isle of Wight. The children experienced heights; where they were brave, Mud; where they were scared and so much more. We had a fantastic week, where the children demonstrated excellent behaviour and made all of the staff feel very proud about being a part of the Jubilee family. The children have memories that will last a life time.
Since being back the children have been working so hard with the SATs revision. We ask that over the Easter holidays you offer support to you children with the holiday SATs revision.
Thank you for all your hard work year 6, let’s smash the SATs and enjoy your last term together.
Spring Term 1
Throughout English this term we have started to read ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’. We are thoroughly enjoying our research into World War 2. It was fascinating to find out about being evacuated and what children would go through. Willie and Tom are great characters so we decided to mimic the writing of Michelle Margorian and create our own openings. We really enjoyed doing this.
In science we have been learning about circuits and electricity. To create a full circuit it must be complete. Using the equipment we tried a variety of circuits. Our experiment was to find out if a light or buzzer would increase depending on the variables. We loved using all of the equipment and creating our own scientific documents.
Throughout RE we learnt about Jesus and Zaccheus. When re-telling the story we wanted to freeze frames the key parts of the story.
This term in maths we have been looking at fractions. We had to prove the relationship between decimals, percentages and fractions. We were very successful.
Throughout P.E this term we have been learning all about netball. We were able to learn different passes including chest pass and shoulder pass. At the end of the topic we were able to use all of our skills and play a game following the rules. The hardest rule to follow was to only hold the ball for three seconds and to make sure we didn’t move when we caught the ball. We really enjoyed netball and look forward to play another game soon!
