About this deal
Year 6 is made up of three classes: Bagheera (Mrs Astirbadi), Shere Khan (Mrs Platford) and Mowgli (Mr Ballard). Other adults in Year 6 include Mrs Chopra, Miss Vaughan, Mrs Washford and MrsTulloch. We have been inspired by characters from the book Jungle Book and the friendship and acceptance from the characters in the story. Nothing interesting ever happens in Cleevesdon with the exception of the odd explosion coming from the shed in Mr. Conran’s garden. So when kaboom turns to kidnap, fingerprint dust will fly. Kaspar is proud to be one of the Guardians - an elite peacekeeping force who protect the Alliance against the rebel Insurgency. Then he encounters young rebel Rhea.
This book had action and suspense because beans’ dad was kidnapped by two kidnappers. the reason why is because beans’ dad invented a device that could be used to get lots of money. Soon, the kidnappers find out. I like beans because she and her friends Louisa and Ann tried their best to save bean’s dad. They are given spy kits that could be used to save dad and send the kidnappers to the jail. A thrilling detective story littered with wild and wonderful inventions from the award-winning author of PIG-HEART BOY and NOUGHTS AND CROSSES.Beans is a likeable lead, and despite the unlikely series of events that the story relates, her relationships with her friends and family are warmly and believably portrayed. A lively (if not madcap) adventure that will find fans amongst younger readers. Each chapter had something to keep us reading and the simple experiments were fun to read about and then we would just do them at home. It’s all stuff you will have at home like lemon juice or wax for secret writings and coco powder for searching fingerprints, great fun.
Our final theme of the year, and sadly Featherby, is Lights Out. We explore the text The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas and produce formal writing, extended narrative and discussion texts. This theme is a transition theme as we prepare ourselves for the next stage of our learning at secondary school.This theme builds upon prior learning on South America, rainforest and Rivers, supporting us with developing our webs of knowledge in these areas. Our class read is Journey to The River Sea which we use to write stories, poetry and information reports. Our geography knowledge is developed on South America by learning about the physical features of the landscape including the rivers and rainforest. Our art focus is on producing prints of leaves and plants in the style of Frida Kahlo and developing our sketching skills. In science we return to electricity and look at equity and experiments on compound and more advanced circuits.
