Summer Term

Welcome back after the Easter Break. This term is a busy one with lots of learning, fun activities and trips planned. Our topic this term is Enterprise  and Endeavour.

 

During the week beginning 9th May, year 6 will be completing their SATs tests. 

 

Our history topic this term is 'World War II: A Child's Life' in which we will explore some of the main aspects of the war from a child's point of view. This is always a fascinating and well-loved topic and if you have any memorabilia or relatives  who can still remember life during the war this will really bring your child's learning to life. 

 

In Science our topic is Animals, including Humans and we'll be finding out about the main parts of the circulatory system and how they function, exploring the effects of diet and exercise on lifestyle and learning about how water and nutrients are transported in humans and animals. 

 

Please refer to the curriculum map below for more detailed information.

 

If you have any queries, please catch me before or after school, or if you need more time, then please arrange an appointment with me.

This Week in Beacon (w/b 09.05.22)
 
This week year 6 sat their SATS test and showed lots of resilience, determination and calm. All Harting staff were super-impressed with their attitude and their willingness to try their best. To celebrate the end of tests, year 6 enjoyed a tea party and an afternoon of fun and games. 
 
In between revision and writing tests, we worked on decimals in maths this week and started our new RE unit by thinking about ripples and the effect of one drop of water (one central focus in life) on everything else. Beacon also got creative and designed a Jubilee coin for the Parish News cover competition. There are some fabulous and very imaginative designs. Look out for the winners in the Jubilee issue!
