This week will be an industrious one in Belted Galloway class. Year 5 will continue on their drama, art and English project centred around The Highway Man, and theory focussed maths work with Miss Cale. Year 6 will be working on their preparations for the end of key stage tests, as well as ensuring that they brush up on the skills required to be 'secondary ready'. The children's enthusiasm, focus and independence has been really encouraging to see.
We will be completing our work centred around 'Letters from the Lighthouse' and 'The Viewer' in English: the children really engaged with both, very different, texts. The next inspiration for their writing will be a short animation called Alma, which will give them a context for recount writing and story writing.
In our maths clinics this week, we will be focussing on 3D shapes and their properties, while the Y6 children will also be learning about area, perimeter and volume.
