Fossil hunters and French in Year 6

Home » News » Fossils and French in Year 6

In English this week, we continued work on our persuasive speeches. We developed paragraphs giving the islanders of Wing our persuasive ideas about why it was imperative to leave the island now. We ranked words such as important, paramount, crucial and necessary in order of their power of persuasion, and then we used these words within our writing.

Today, we wrote our final paragraph, making sure it was a 'call to action', and then we went out on the field and spoke with authority and emphasis as we shared our work in pairs. Some children got the chance to address the whole class. Speeches are rousing and drive our point home well. Next week, we will fine tune our work, ensuring that writing is concise. Great work so far everyone.

In science, we completed activities about fossils. We looked at how fossils are formed and why they are of scientific importance. We also learnt about the fossil hunter Mary Anning. Next week, we will make fossils of our own and become palaeontologists as we excavate.

We enjoyed an afternoon of French today, revising the words for a range of animals and colours. We read Madame Arc-en-Ciel, translating the story (and learnt lots of other new vocabulary). We played animal lotto, wrote sentences to answer the question 'Combien d'animaux?', learnt the song Arc en Ciel, and then ended the day by listening to the story again. We all agreed that the second time we heard the story we could translate many of the words and sentences independently.

Spag.com homework will be set this evening.

Have a fantastic day tomorrow Year 6. Don't forget your change of clothes!
