UKS2 End of Term Reflection

It is hard to believe that we are already at the end of our first term of this academic year. I would like to share some of the social, personal and academic success of Upper Key Stage 2 already achieved this year to give us further inspiration to aim even higher next term.

Year 5 had an ‘out of this world’ first term! They learned all about Earth and Space in their Science and Topic lessons. This cumulated in a memorable trip to the China Science and Technology Museum where they got to see how astronauts travel through space. In English, they learned about space and wrote in a range of genres, including recounts and explanations, through diary entries and instructional writing. In Maths, problem solving was at the core of their learning and it was great to see the children using their ‘Be Ambitious’ skills such as resilience and collaboration to answer questions. They loved getting involved with our new Times Tables Rockstars challenge and it has been great to see so many children improving their multiplication knowledge through this app.

Year 6 began the year by appointing their Sports Captains and House Captains after a rigorous application process. They then got stuck straight in to their first topic of the year: 'Climate Change'. They learned about the impact we have, as humans, on our planet and looked at ways we can all help to reduce the destruction – such as eating more climate-friendly meals. They wrote persuasive speeches to Mr Brett with ideas of how the school could be more climate friendly and then presented them to him, in his office! In Art, they created Andy Warhol and Banksy inspired artwork, through stencils and printing, depicting a climate change message. They also learned about the impact of climate change on many countries across the world including Australia, Bangladesh, Nepal, The Philippines, Canada and Sri Lanka and about important climate change activists such as Greta Thunburg. It has been wonderful to see Year 6 engaging with, being passionate about and taking responsibility for a topic which will impact their future. 

I thoroughly look forward to seeing the resilience, hard-work and passion for learning continue in to the Spring Term.
