Duchy of Lancaster

Badgers Class

This half term is going to be a challenging one for our Year 6’s. The SATs exams are drawing nearer and new beginnings are just on the horizon. We do however, have many exciting things planned before they leave us.

Is there a Seuss loose about this hoose?’: We begin by studying the work of Theodor Geisel – more commonly known as Dr. Seuss. The children will analyse his work and the techniques that he used to be able to create their own Dr. Seuss inspired poem entitled ‘What pet should I get?’

 

 

 

 

 

They will experiment with all they have learnt this year in English to produce unique poetry verses – from creating passive voice sentences to figurative language phrases, and subjunctive verb form clauses to selective vocabulary choices.

Maths: This half term the children will be exploring and playing with numbers, using a packet of ‘Skittles’ as inspiration.

The last two weeks of this half term will be dedicated to Art.

The children will produce their own painting based on the Pop Art movement.

This will then follow a week of art-based activities, learning skills needed for still-life drawing, sculpture and print-making.
