Week Ending 11/10/19

This week in English Year 6 have been writing reports in the style of ‘Spiderwick’. They have been working hard to include cohesive devices and sophisticated vocabulary.  Their work has been a pleasure to read – Well done Year 6!  This afternoon Year 6 have enjoyed taking part in the sponsored walk.

This week in science, as part of our topic of electricity, Year 6 have been making and extending circuits.  They have been finding out why circuits don’t work, and learning about currents and volts.  In addition the class have been working very hard at long division this week- well done for persevering with tricky problems Year 6!

This week Year 6 enjoyed taking part in a Virtual Reality workshop.  They looked at the impact of climate change and its effect on habitats.  Areas that they explored included the Amazon, Antarctica and the Great Barrier Reef.

Week Ending 20/9/19

This week Year 6 have been writing super poems and diary entries based upon the book, ‘Arthur Spiderwick’s field guide to the fantastical world around you’. We have particularly enjoyed learning about cockatrices, trolls and boggarts! We have also been enjoying our hockey sessions with Mrs Charles.

This week we have been working hard particularly in writing.  As part of Roald Dahl day we looked at the ‘BFG’ and have been writing descriptions of giants and persuading others to try ‘Frobscottle’.  Year 6 have started their monitor jobs and have been good role models around the school.  A great start Year 6!
