This week Year 6 have finished writing their flashbacks from the short film the Piano.
The children’s work was very good and very emotive.
We have also been looking at the order of operations in Maths (BIDMAS) which the children have loved.
We have quite a few scientists in year 6, and have been exploring circuits and the correct scientific symbols to represent the various components.
We will continue to investigate how to make different types of circuits and what will effect them.
Year 6 have enjoyed writing balanced arguments that have been linked to our class text.
The children have really enjoyed discussing the issues surrounding animals kept in captivity and in turn have produced some excellent writing.
In Maths, we have been immersing ourselves in the world of fractions.
It is really important that all the children have a sound understanding in this area– so please could you discuss this with them at home.
If they can see fractions being used in real life, i.e cooking, shopping etc… it will really help.
Have a good weekend.
Year 6 have had a great first week back and are excited about all the new topics we will be covering this term.
If you haven't already then please have a look at these topics on the school website.
In Literacy we have started a new text called Zoo written by Anthony Brown.
The children have enjoyed looking at issues surrounding animals in cages and have also written some great poetry.
In Maths we have been looking at different types of angle.
This week has been another busy week for Year 6.
We have continued to read Journey to Jo’burg and have written our own narratives based around the students protest.
In Maths, we have been learning the different parts to a circle and how to work out radius, diameter and circumference.
In addition we have looked at how to work out missing angles.
We hope you all have a good half term.
We are looking forward to seeing the children return from Swanage and hearing all about their exciting adventures.
We have heard they have been having a lot of fun.
The rest of the year 6 had a fantastic day at the Cinema and bowling on Wednesday and their excellent behaviour was even recognised and praised by a member of the public.
They have also had fun this week designing their very own theme park, thinking about how much it will cost to run and build.
Welcome back to all of the Year 6’s.
We are looking forward to all the exciting things that have been planned for this term and it is going to be very exciting.
This week the children have been learning about the Apartheid and the role of Nelson Mandela—they were quite shocked in our very own segregation activity.
In Maths, we have been reading numbers beyond 1 million and ordering them.
If you would like to know more about the topics we are covering this term, you can find them on the school’s website.
Finally a big well done to the children who completed their 11+ papers this week.
