Welcome to Year 6 with Mrs Djennati and Mrs Smith
Meet the new Year 6 class. We have a lot of work ahead of us and we aim to do well in our last year at Cloverlea.
This term is Year Six's last one at Cloverlea and there are plenty of things to look forward to:
We will be going to Robinwood on the 3rd July for 3 days and we have also planned a trip to Gulliver's World as a treat!
Soon we will be starting to think about planning and practising for our Year 6 production which is always a special treat for parents and the whole school. In addition there will be a leavers' assembly on the last day which is always a tear-jerker!
Here are some of the topics that we will be looking at this term in the curriculum:
Maths: Revision for SATS then lots of work in preparation for secondary school transition.
English: Lots of work on play scripts and performance for out production.
Science: Work on electricity including different types of circuits.
History: The Viking and Anglo Saxon struggle for the kingdom of England.
RE: What happens when we die from the point of view of different religions.
PHSE: Focus on transition to secondary school and changes.
French: Sentence structure and vocabulary of the French language.
Music: Performing together.
D&T: Making a buzz wire game using circuits as well as designing and making commemorative cushions to remind us of our time at Cloverlea.
Please see below for a colour example of the Robinwood souvenirs which should help with choices.

Our History work will include WWII and the battle of Britain and we will be getting a visit from the Blitz school in March.
RE work will include exploring the question of whether art and architecture are more/less/or equally as important as charity and giving.
In French, our accents are really improving and Gulay, our assistante, will continue to put us through our linguistic paces!
Here are our photos from the recent Crucial Crew safety event:
Autumn Term 2016
This term we have lots of interesting work in store:
In Maths, we will be consolidating formal methods of calculation as well as working with fractions and 2D and 3D shapes.
In English, we are exploring classic fiction and looking specifically at the 'Just William' books by Richmal Crompton.
In Science, we are learning about classification and the work of Carl Linnaeus to help us to understand why we sort all living things into different groups.
In RE we will be exploring Islam by looking at questions such as - What is life like for a Muslim in Britain?
In Art, connected to our Islam topic we will be working on Islamic calligraphy and also traditional henna patterns.
In D&T, we will be focusing on Arabic food and we will be getting a visit from the Fun Food Chef, so watch out for the photos!
Our History work will focus on the early Islamic civilization of Baghdad in AD 900 and we will find out how discoveries made then are still relevant today.
Our Geography work will be based on using maps and working out 4 and 6 figure grid references, whilst also drawing sketch plans of the local area.
All in all, a busy term ahead!
Bikeability - Trafford's Cycling Proficiency
Our design technology project this term included the sampling of Arabic foods and we had the opportunity to make our own filled pastries which took a lot of care and attention.
