Year 6

With Mr Davies, Mrs Lloyd and Miss Ward
Year 6 Escape

Welcome to the Summer Term Year 6. There are plenty of exciting projects to look forward to over the coming weeks.

 

It’s only a few weeks until SATs. I cannot express how proud I am of your attitude over the last few weeks. You are taking responsibility for your own learning, which is building your self-confidence. We’ll explore a few remaining areas of maths through investigations and problem solving. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to show off your grammatical knowledge in a range of games and challenges.

Our topic is Escape! What would you like to escape from? Where would you escape to? We will be basing our learning around the book Holes, which sees Stanley Yelnats wishing he could escape from Camp Green Lake. This will lead us to study some underlying themes in the book such as contrasting America with Cornwall. There will also be the chance to look at the civil rights movement in the United States.

 

After half-term there will be two very exciting projects to bring your time at Dobwalls to a close. Firstly, we will be preparing for your leavers’ assembly. That is your chance to show off your vast array of talents in one final performance at Dobwalls. Perhaps you’ll be a dancer, a singer, an actor or maybe even a technical wizard behind the scenes.

 

There’s also an enterprise challenge. How much money can your team make? Every team will be given a modest budget. From there, it is up to you how you spend it and how you earn your money. This is a fantastic team project that builds on the NatWest workshop you completed in the Spring Term.
