How the World Works
Welcome back to the final part of Summer term!
Although this is a really busy term with transition days, Mini Enterprise, the beach trip, PGL, Ye Ha The Musical and the leavers assembly, we will still have English, Maths, Science, Computing and PE lessons!
Monday 1st July 2019
In previous years, parents who work in a business environment have come into school to talk with the children about running a business, business roles etc. This has really brought the learning alive for children! If any parents would be able to come into school in the afternoon of to be confirmed that would be great.
In English, over the next 4 weeks, we will be working on The Landlady by Roald Dahl, we will be exploring the text and writing across a range of genres. The children will also write their own horror stories using literary techniques that they learn from investigating other texts.
In Maths, children will be consolidating knowledge which will give them a great start at secondary school. We will recap on all of these areas such as fractions, decimals and percentages! They will become mini entrepreneurs and will design their own theme park; they will consider ‘start-up’ costs, expenditure and income.
They will then design their own stall for Mini Enterprise, they will organise their own market research, advertise their product, consider start-up costs and sales techniques and stall presentation.
PE for this half term will be on Tuesday afternoons and Thursday afternoons, however children should have their PE kit in school at all times!
In Computing, children will develop their programming skills using Lego.

Don’t forget to ask your children questions about the text. Please see reading question handout for question ideas.

This is a great website for fast learning. It pops up quick questions and gives explanations if you don't get the correct answers.
