Well done to all of you!

This week, we have been working hard to master different division strategies in Maths; this has involved developing our resilience and perseverance.

In PE, we have been practising our hockey skills and have been developing tactics in order to control the puck. There was a lot of us in the hall and we were all able to work safely and sensibly to achieve this skill.

In topic, we have been creating our own ‘Horrible Histories Comic Strip’ in line with Terry Deary’s style. Some of them are very entertaining!

Today, children have dressed up in spots/ pyjamas in order to raise money Children in Need. They all look great and have gone to lots of effort!

This week, we have been working on writing a formal non-chronological report in English; we have worked really hard to build up our skills and Miss Harrison is very impressed with our final piece of writing.

In topic, we have been using the BBC Schools website to research The Great War. We have found out some really interesting information to add to our English report.

In Maths, we have been refining our column addition/ subtraction skills in order to build on these skills next week…

Year 6 have also enjoyed watching a pantomime – ‘The Wizard of Oz’ They all came back into class singing 🙂

This week, we have begun our World War One topic. We are all really excited about this topic! We have generated questions, researched how the war started, investigated recruitment posters and visited the Bridge in Fatfield to see the poppies and cenotaph. We each chose a local soldier, who lost their life during WW1 and made a poppy for them, which is now displayed in school.

We have been celebrating Halloween this week with our Halloween Day. We all came in dressed up and all looked super scary! We did: Halloween maths and competitions. We also had a mini Halloween party!

We have started investigating circuits in Science and we are beginning to understand how to draw our own…

Year 6 have also been busy practising some SAT style questions. It has been a tough week but we have worked extremely hard and we are looking forward to future challenges.

Well done to all of you!

This week, we have been working on rounding numbers to 10,000,000. We found this tricky to begin with but now we are experts! We have completed some we really challenging problems and some of us have even had a go at writing their own! In English, we have been developing characterization through speech. I have to say that all of the children have worked really hard on this and have really impressed me!

As a class, we have achieved 36 Mathletics certificates this week! You are all brilliant!

In Science, we completed a micro-organism experiment as part of our Darwin topic. We were trying to find out if wheat produced more Carbon Dioxide with the more sugar it had. We found this to be true and recorded our results in a table and line graph. Please see some pictures from our experiment below:

Year 6 have also won the attendance award this week and therefore, will receive extra playtime on Monday. Keep it up!

In Maths, we have been investigating angles of a straight line and triangle. We have also been using a protractor to draw different types of triangles, which was challenging but we were very proud of ourselves when we did it!

Well done to all of you!

So far, we have all settled into Year 6 really well. We have established our class rules and we have transformed our classroom so that it reflects our topic of ‘Darwin’s Discovery Channel’.

We have completed homework projects to get our topic started and they are amazing! We have been really creative! Some of us baked tortoise cakes, some created canvas pictures, some did a PowerPoint presentation, some did big posters and much more!

See some pictures below:
