Topic Map for Spring 2
What are we learning about this term?
Welcome to Eagles Class, we are a Year 6 class of busy, individual children: 8 boys and 1 girl. Juliet is the class teacher and we have Kelly as Level Three teaching assistant, Nikki, Mandy and Michelle are our Level Two Teaching assistants.
This half term our topic is ‘Together’ and we are getting to know each other, work together and begin to make friends. We have read ‘The Snail and the Whale’ and looked at how the snail helped the whale. We counted snails on and off the Whale’s tail in numeracy and went on a snail hunt outside, but found none! We worked outside and made a big circle of leaves and twigs after looking at the art of Andy Goldsworthy. We have begun to read ‘Meesha makes friends’ and will be using it as inspiration to make models of ‘friends’ out of natural materials outside. We will be continuing to talk about how to be good friends and being kind to each other.
We are beginning to learn about similarities and differences between others and ourselves and will be using the story of ‘The Proudest Blue’ to begin to understand the Islamic faith. The patterns of Islamic art will give us inspiration to make our own patterns and tiles.
We look forward to learning together and making friendships for the rest of the year.
