Year 6 have had busy term! Today we celebrated autism acceptance day by wearing blue. We learned a lot about autism earlier this term during World Book Week so we have a really good understanding of the differences autistic people may have and how we can accept and support our friends at Kelvin Grove and in our wider community.
We have been doing our final round of mock SATs this week before we sit the real exams in May. We’ve been working really hard to focus and apply all that we’ve learned over the year. After Easter, we will spend the first three weeks revising and getting in as much learning as we can so we feel as prepared as possible when the time comes. You can support at home by ensuring your child completes any homework that is set and revise areas or topics that may have been mentioned during parents’ evening.
Despite our exams, we’ve still managed to have some fun! As part of our science topic on light, we have been making shadow puppets. We are retelling the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ so we’ve had to carefully consider the puppets we need and how to make them come to life. Writing our own scripts, we’ve performed our shows for each other, focussing on how to use the distance between the torch and the puppet to bring our characters to life. We had a great time and also learned how distance impacts shadow size and length.
