Welcome to Mrs Galloway's Class
Miss Brown, Mrs Galloway and Mrs Hodgins
For our final term, we are reading the book, Stig of the Dump, and exploring the topic of Stone age to The Iron Age. Investigating Evolution and the changes that have happened through the eras.
We always start our class book right away, we spend our first few weeks doing lots of reading tasks to really engage and know the story inside out. This leads us on to some brilliant writing. This term we will be creating our own persuasive texts, Slam poetry and a story based on pre-history.
We enjoyed our first lesson where we used clues from our immersive area to deduct inferences and predictions about the story of Stig.
With this being the final term of the year, we are spending lots of time securing all the tricky maths we have learnt over our year. The year 6's also have the SATs in May and have began to prepare for them, every week we look at SATs questions and full papers. We have started our new measure work on money, learning to calculate with it, give change and look at different combinations of coins and notes. We even turned our classroom into a restaurant and ordered food, having to work out the price of our orders and find the correct change.
Evolution and adaptations is our fascinating Science topic this half term. We are already so interested in his scientific findings. We all want to look more closely at how humans have evolved both physically and to adapt to the every changing world and society.
