This first part of the summer term will be busy with camp and year 6 SATS in May, however we are hoping to explore our wonderful world in the first topic of the summer term. We will be exploring the theme of diversity and difference and how we should accept and embrace differences, whether they be cultural, physical or personal. We also will explore the importance of kindness and acceptance as values to embrace.
We will be focused on revisiting topics from earlier in the year, consolidating confidence with methods and beginning to stretch our reasoning and problem solving skills with investigations.
In literacy we will be focusing on the fantastic book, ‘Wonder,’ by RJ Palacio that has also been made into an inspiring film. We will be writing letters and persuasive debating pieces of work linked to the book as well as practising SPaG and reading comprehension using the text and the film.
We will be exploring the country of Japan. Looking at its human and physical geography; its culture; sports and entertainment; its history and modern Japan as well as learning a few words of Japanese, studying and producing art work inspired by Japan and trying some of the country’s food. In exploring and discovering all about Japan, we hope to look at the contrasts and possible similarities between Japanese and English life.
We will be looking at Evolution and Inheritance – identifying how genes make us like our parents, diversity within a species and adaption of species as well as looking at Darwin and his theory of evolution.
We will be looking at Islam all this term and as well as exploring what Muslim’s believe we will be comparing and contrasting this to what Christians believe.
