Writing challenges and scientific studies Y6

Home » News » Writing challenges and scientific studies Y6

To begin our week in Year 6, we faced a tricky writing challenge and became food advisory committee members in science!

We started our writing challenge by exploring the ways in which Wing and New Mungo could be compared and contrasted: in location, in citizenship and as homes. What a deep understanding you have of our class novel, Exodus. You have clearly grasped that, despite its outward appearance as a place which is thriving, New Mungo is actually a brainwashed, clinical society. You could identify that Wing — despite its problems — is full of warmth, and has real relationships at its heart.

Once we'd completed this task, we worked hard to brainstorm and research powerful word choices to support our writing, creating useful word banks.

In science, we began work on developing our understanding of healthy food choices. We watched a video about a new 'healthy' food bar which gave views from an advertising company and a health food guru. We compared the nutritional value of four real health food bars and one fictitious product. We had to use the information we found to decide whether to ban, license or endorse the new fruit bar. To end the task, we staged a debate. Points for and against licensing the new snack were shared very enthusiastically. You have great debating skills, Year 6. Many thanks to parents who sent in health food bars. They really helped us to think about food which is advertised as a healthy option.

Today, we began our writing challenge: a comparison. The task required very careful consideration. We worked incredibly hard to master this tricky writing style. A huge well done for your resilience everyone! We all agree that writing a successful comparison is our most tricky writing challenge yet.

Enjoy the rest of your week, Year 6.
