Class 6 Newsletter Summer Term 2021
This last term at Primary School will, I hope, be a very special, busy and memorable one. We have an exciting timetable of events in this last term including a water sports day at Harlow Outdoor Centre on Wednesday 14th July and a workshop with Crucial Crewe. Also, we will be developing our entrepreneurial skills with our own Dragon Den’s project later this term.
English: we will be studying a range of fiction and non- fiction writing, including non- chronological reports, poetry, film narrative and graphic novels and classic fiction; we will review and practice all the key features of the different text types, look at spelling patterns and strategies, build on our use of different types of sentence and structures for good effect and perfect our handwriting. Drama, music and play scripts will be a focus at the end of term as we prepare for our production to be performed in our Leavers’ Assembly. We will also reinforce aspects of spelling, grammar and punctuation through GPS early morning activities.
