In Tigers, we work hard on embedding all of the skills we have learnt in our time at Oxley and continue to build on our stamina and independence before we head into Year 6. Some of our favourite topics include learning about; Lord Shaftesbury – a British politician, philanthropist and social reformer; workhouses in Victorian Britain; and doing lots of science including learning about friction, air resistance, conductors and evaporation! Our science lessons are full of practical opportunities to think like a scientist.
In other areas, we like learning about genres of music including modern day artists such as Adele, and learning about art – especially when it comes to creating our mosaic pieces and stained-glass window art.
We also really love our novel study approach and have read some fantastic books this year which has helped our writing across the curriculum. For more information about our topics and to access the list of 50 books to read before the end of Year 6, click on the link, below.
