    Below is this half term's spellings, homework and curriculum map. All information needed is attached to each document. The curriculum map gives some information about what we will be learning about in all topics this term. Children will also receive a weekly comprehension to practise their reading skills.

    6S and 6G have worked together today to study the artist ‘Henry Moore’ and have looked at how he created atmosphere and mood in his art, using light and dark. The children have created gradient boxes of shading to practise their pencil control, have created 3D objects using shading and have looked at perspective using miniature mannequins. The children have then practised using charcoal.

    Eventually, the children will be creating their own art inspired by Henry Moore.




    Remembrance in 6G

    The children in 6G have been thinking carefully about Remembrance all week - using war poetry to support their learning. They read and analysed WW1 and WW2 poetry. They created their own poems as well as creating blackout poetry. The children created prayers and poppies for display. The children participated in our school service by reading poems and prayers, along with the fallen soldiers of Middleton St George aloud for the whole school to remember them. Their beautiful work is being displayed in our corridors. 


    As part of Black History Month, the children have learnt about the Windrush generation through reading Benjamin Zephaniah's story 'We sang across the sea' and Floella Benjamin's 'Coming to England. The children learnt about the reasons for their migration to the UK - how they were asked to support after WW2, and the discrimination they faced once they arrived, just because of the colour of their skin. They produced some fantastic work!
    Making periscopes
    The children had great fun making periscopes to show how light can be made to bounce and reflect off different surfaces.
    Investigating Shadows

    As part of our science work on light, the children investigated how shadows change when the distance moves closer and further away from an object. Well done 6G! 🔦👤😊
    2.10.23 The children had a fantastic time learning how to use the African drums today. Super rhythm 6G 🥁🪘😊



     28.9.23 Today we have a superb online visit from the National Holocaust Centre and Museum. The children learnt about the German propaganda, and followed the story of Leo, a ten-year-old Jewish German boy and how he managed to escape persecution from the Nazis via the Kindertransport. The children heard many survivors story and heard about the Kindertransport began. The children were superb in their questions and thoughts when discussing such a sensitive subject.




    27.9.23 - Les parties du corps

    We have had a great time learning the names of the different parts of the body in French today 🇫🇷😊

    15.9.23 - The children had a fantastic trip to Eden Camp last Friday and learnt a lot about WW2.
    We were also contacted by Eden Camp who said:

    We just wanted to pass on to yourself and the rest of your staff team how impressed our team were with your pupils’ behaviour during their visit today, and also with their respect shown towards your allocated lunchtime Mess Hut (there was apparently very little cleaning up to do after them!)
    If you could please pass on our thanks and compliments to your pupils as well, please.
    It was great to welcome you all today and we hope to have the opportunity to be able to welcome pupils and staff from St George’s Academy again in the near future.
    Well done 6G, we are very proud of how sensible and polite you all were ☺️


    11.9.23 - Today we enjoyed learning how to drum with Apollo Arts! Everyone was very engaged and enjoyed the session 😊
