Mrs Johnson, Mr Lynch and Mrs Matthews have provided the following learning update:
It’s exciting to think that the last term at Belmont has arrived for our year 6 children! We know that they have approached their final term with a mixture of excitement and trepidation about what the future might hold for them, as they move on to pastures new.
Year 6 has had an amazing summer term; their attitudes to learning have continued positively and they have continued to demonstrate their superb approach to work and friendship. In class, we have finished learning about the impact and effects of ‘The Great War’ and the children have been highly invested in their work. As part of our history and English learning, O’Keeffe and Wren class have produced some truly amazing first-person accounts, letters and diary entries based on our book ‘The Trenches’ by Jim Eldridge. The work produced whilst learning about this topic has demonstrated what a mature, insightful and thoughtful group of young people we are teaching.
In Science, we have begun to study electricity and the children have experienced creating, experimenting with and changing circuits using practical resources and a virtual programme/ website. We have also studied the artwork and style of Georgia O’Keeffe this term where the children have practised sketching and painting, with water colours, in depth and detail to emulate O’Keeffe’s vibrant style.
