Maple - Year 6
Summer 2021 overview
Welcome to the Maple class page. This is the final term of an incredible 7 years at Upton Noble for many of the class. Perhaps the year hasn't panned out as many of us would have hoped for but what we can do is make up for that in the final term. The stimulus for much of our work is the Olympic Games - which at the time of writing are still going ahead! We have lots of work planned around this topic such as countries wealth and their success at the Olympics as well as the physical and human geography of Japan - the host nation. In other subject areas we will be looking at the history of the ancient games and using the Olympics to create infographics and presentations using Google Sheets and Google Slides. Away from the topic, we will naturally continue with maths and English as a priority and will focus on the key strands to ensure children are as prepared as possible for secondary school. In writing and reading, we will be using Holes by Louis Sachar to write balanced arguments, non chron reports, letters and creative writing. Away from the classroom, we will be going to Okehampton which I and the pupils are over the moon with with. I'm so pleased that they will get to end their time at Upton Noble the way it should be.
