This Term's Core Value: HOPE

This Term's Core Value: HOPE 1

Our big theme for the term is:

A new dawn!  

 

This term we will be studying adapted versions of Shakespeare's plays: A Midsummer Night's Dream and Macbeth 

 

 

This term's excellence project will be based around studying the work of artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh. We will be using some of his work as inspiration for our own and manipulating this into representations of Shakespeare's work. We will be exploring pattern and texture and developing our skills of drawing and sketching. 

Year 6 Book Club

 

This year, we will be continuing with our fantastic, and hugely popular, book club. All children have got a reading challenge with a list of book titles inside their homework diaries. Children must read for a minimum of four times a week to receive a merit. 

 

For those really enthusiastic readers, see the document below for a list of other suggested books. Happy reading.
