At the start of the week in Year 6....
Our writing this week has allowed us to use all our experiences at PGL as we planned and drafted a recount of one of the events we had participated in. We selected the event which we felt had given us our greatest sense of achievement.
To begin, we read a recount of Miss Lake's first ever caving trip. We then looked at the features and devices which made this a successful piece of writing. We realised that by including the physical feelings we'd experienced, we could engage the reader and show them rather than tell them how we'd felt.
We wrote an opening paragraph to answer the questions: who, what, when and where, and then we retold the adventure from start to finish, summing up with a paragraph which reflected on the sense of accomplishment.
We've developed our vocabulary too; discussing the exact meaning of words such as ominous, sluggish and tentatively, and investigated when -ce or -se should be used to form nouns and verbs.
In science, we looked in more detail at data from the study of finches on the Galapagos islands and plotted graphs which we then compared, looking for trends and drawing conclusions from our findings. We discovered that writing conclusions is technical and tricky, and that we may need to do more work on this to master it!
This afternoon we researched Charles Darwin, using a range of sources. We will use our research facts to write a biography for study work.
Next week, we will produce our final presentation copy of our recounts and begin work on fossils in science.
Spag.com homework will be set tomorrow and an email will be sent containing the date this homework should be completed by.
I'm looking forward to reading all about your adventures at PGL.
Enjoy the rest of the week, Year 6.
