    Term 6

    This is the final term at Paddock Wood Primary for Y6 children but we’ll keep them busy until the very last day!

    The first week of term will be an unusually  quiet one in the Y6 classrooms – many children will be in Paris enjoying the sights (and the escargot) while  others will be busy visiting the theatre in London to see a production of Matilda followed by a slap-up meal. Later on in the week they will have a day out at Dreamland in Margate.

    Much of our work this term will be centred around these visits – map-work, art (The Impressionists), diary writing, report writing, history and research with the children producing personal journals of their experiences. As last year, we hope to share some of this work with you in a special assembly later in the term.

    In maths we will continue to follow the Y6 curriculum working on translating, rotating and reflecting shapes and patterns in four quadrant grids; calculating volume of solids and developing problem-solving and logic skills through various investigations.

    During this final term, we will be exploring the chemistry strand of the science curriculum. The children will observe and carry out various experiments involving elephants’ toothpaste, endo/exothermic reactions, whoosh bottles and investigating how different metals react with acids – all very intriguing and thought-provoking for our budding scientists.

    On the last day of term (19th  July), we would like to invite all parents, carers and grandparents to the Y6 Leavers’ Assembly at 10:00 in the large hall for the children’s last ’official’ engagement here at the primary school. We look forward to seeing you there.
