So far this week in Year 6

Home » News » So far this week in Year 6

We have made final edits to our persuasive speeches, working hard to make them more concise.

In one paragraph, Matthew initially wrote: The sea has taken many lives due to the sea levels rising and many new homes are being destroyed by the sea. But in his edit, he changed this to: Lives have been taken due to sea levels rising and homes are being destroyed.

Making edits like this made sure our speeches were 'punchy', and kept the audience engaged. We realised this was a valuable skill to develop. Well done, everyone. You persevered with this writing and it shows!

Today, we enjoyed videoing each other reading the speeches, and we'll use the clips next half term to improve our delivery when addressing an audience.

In science on Monday we made fossils and began a study work piece based on a model of the history of life on earth. After enjoying a visit to church with our reception buddies, we 'excavated' the fossils, and now we are ready to paint them to make them look more authentic.

We also recapped all of our learning from this half term's science. I was very impressed by the knowledge Year 6 have acquired about Evolution and Inheritance — and LOTS of house points were awarded.

Tragedy has struck for our friends in the class novel, Exodus. Year 6 showed such empathy for the characters who are now stranded as refugees outside the walls of the new world — New Mungo. I promise you that there is a brighter future ahead for them. Perhaps the 'urchin children' hold the answer...

Enjoy the rest of the week Year 6 (and the half term break).
