Our week in Maths has seen us covering factors, multiples, prime numbers, orders of numbers and rules of divisibility. We have recapped our knowledge and used it to tackle all sorts of problems. Our daily arithmetic challenges are really paying off as we apply our skills to different problems each day. Our mathematical vocabulary is being used accurately and we apply it as often as we can. Keep it up Y6.

In English we have begun to look at biographies. We have used Barrack Obama's biography to discuss the features and to use it to answer comprehension questions. We will continue next week as we investigate the life of Anne Frank.

Our reading focus this week has been an assessment. We have adhered to the timing of one hour as we completed questions on three different pieces of text. I am so proud of our results and how we have used our skills to try and keep to the hour. We have re-visited the paper after marking to discuss our answers and the marking scheme.

In spelling this week we have focused on the cial and tial suffixes. We noticed that if the root stem ends in a vowel you will need to use cial, and if the root stem ends in a consonant it will be the tial suffix.

Our History continued this week as we used a rations list to work out a family's weekly food supply. We applied this reasoning to our own family units to see if we thought we could manage on the amount given. Homework for next week is to create an item of food made only from rations. Your item/items will be included in our afternoon tea to serve to your grandparents on our Theme Day which is on Monday 10th December.

We continued our Science unit this week on LIGHT. We were given specific information on possible suspects' heights and used it to illuminate a possible criminal. We were introduced to the term retro-reflective and we now understand how our eyes use light to see objects. Thank you to Rachel M for spending time at home using our prisms to split light into colours and sharing your results with us. We will continue to solve this crime next week.

We continued our new RE unit this week by watching a clip from Nemo and considering the term Salvation. We used our Fruits of the Spirit and our Bibles to find different stories that may have a moral meaning to match. We will continue with our learning next week.

We have begun to learn wartime songs this week in Music. Thank you to Mrs Swan for providing the music and our choir for leading our sessions. We want to perform these songs on our Theme Day, so we will keep practising.

The Book Fair is with us at the moment. We spent a short time in the hall today flicking through new books. If you haven't managed to visit yet, you are still able to until Monday.

On Formal Friday today we completed our spellings, times tables test and an addition, subtraction, multiplication and division assessment. All homework has been marked.

We have run through our Christmas service words this week in class. If your child has words, please could you spend a little time listening to a recital of them. Some readings are quite lengthy, and your support would very much be appreciated. Thank you.

Another super week Y6. Have a great weekend.

Mrs B.
