|Flamingo Class||Yellowhammer Class|
Over the last two weeks Year 6 have been researching a range of global topics linked to our book ‘The Viewer’.
These have included Nuclear Weapons, Global Warming, Famine, Overpopulation and Drought.
Children have particularly enjoyed using a range of sources to find key facts and create a detailed non-chronological report.
In Maths we have moved on to Fractions, children are now able to add, subtract, multiply and simplify fractions.
We have also looked at converting mixed numbers to improper fractions and vice versa.
As we are nearing the end of Term 1 we remind you of our open afternoon on Thursday.
Year 6 have had a positive start to the term writing setting descriptions, diary entries and persuasive arguments.
They are using descriptive vocabulary, modal verbs and have used the text ‘The Viewer’ to back up their arguments.
In Maths, we have focused on using formal column method for addition, subtraction and multiplication.
We will be moving on to fractions in the coming weeks.
Flamingos are enjoying making their Bluetown houses and Yellowhammer have created some interesting artwork, showing off their pencil skills.
We have had great success with AR this term, keep it up Year 6.
