Year 6

Autumn Term

Our text this half term will be 'Rooftoppers, this will also be the basis of our topic. The book is based on an orphan called Sophie who was orphaned in a shipwreck. Sophie is convinced her mother survived and when no one believes her she sets out to prove them wrong.

We will look at the book in detail and use the characters and the setting for our written work in English. 

We will look at predictions, balanced arguments and character studies. 

We will be working with the sports coach every Friday afternoon to complete a Sports Leader Course. This term our PE days will be Wednesday and Friday.

In Science, we will be learning about how light travels, reflections and how the eye works.
