Welcome to Class 11
In English, we will be learning how to write biographies. We will examine the key features of a biography and then begin the unit by writing a biography on a family member. We will then look at writing a biography about Nancy Wake and our final write will focus on Anne Frank.
In maths we will be focusing on addition and subtraction. We will be solving addition and subtraction multi-step problems in context, deciding which operations to use and why.
In science we will be looking at how the Earth, Sun and Moon fit within our solar system and explore the different planets in the Milky Way. We will focus on answering the question 'Why do we have night and day and seasons?'
In history we will be focusing on the question 'How did World War Two impact on the North West of England?' We will be learning all about the experiences of evacuated children in Manchester during the Blitz.
In art we will be drawing and creating collages of World War Two landscapes using different materials.
In music we will continue to have our wind instrument tuition on Wednesday afternoons.
In outdoor PE we will be focusing on invasion games (Tag Rugby) and we will be swimming every Monday afternoon at the Wilmslow Leisure Centre. Please remember your swimming kit and towel.
