Y6 News of the Week
Another busy week with some great focused work Y6. Well done.
We began our multiplication unit this week by recapping our short and long multiplication skills. We discussed our steps to success and reminded ourselves of the errors that could be made when completing these types of calculations. We will continue with this unit next week.
In English we have reviewed the features of a diary and talked about the purpose of this type of writing. We then revisited a documentary we had previously seen on the first day of the Blitz and drew up a relevant timeline. We used the dialogue from this programme to create a word bank and then role played the events. This helped to organise our thought as we wrote our first drafts. We will fully edit and then move onto a new genre of writing.
Book Club has seen us tackling dictionary questions and comprehension questions from a piece of non fiction writing based on Anne Frank. Great discussion came from this piece with some important questions being asked.
In SpaG this week we have focused on nouns and adjectives. We have also completed tasks in our SpaG books and all have been marked.
Our pieces of Blitz artwork are coming along nicely. We have been introduced to Karl Johnson a silhouette artist and watched how he uses his skills to create silhouette work from live models. We will continue with this next week.
In Geography this week we have located capital cities of the Axis, Allied and the Neutral countries within WW2.
In French we continued our classroom instructions and put our skills to the test with a group competition.
In RE we studied a Holman Hunt painting of Jesus called The Light of the World. Finding different light features in the painting and understanding what this painting might mean to a Christian were our focus.
Research skills were used this week in Music as Miss Holland asked Y6 to find meanings in different lyrics.
In Computing this week we have used the Code Studio programme.
We finished our week with formal Friday. We completed a mental maths paper putting our maths starters into practice and a times tables test. We visited Spag.com to review last week's tasks and any questions we found tricky.
New homework has been set. This includes: Spag online tasks (2), TT Rock Stars practice (as often as possible). We will be battling Y4 and Y5 next weekend so brushing up on our skills would be great. Regular reading aloud with comprehension style questions being asked (sample questions are printed in the front of each reading diary).
This week Y6 lead worship where we were treated to a presentation by Hattie. Hattie has raised over £1000 for Team Lewis by setting herself, originally a 100 mile target, which then she raised to 200 miles. Hattie walked over 200 miles over the summer holidays to raise money for our special friend Lewis. We were all moved by her determination. What an inspiration you are Hattie! A huge well done from us all.
One final message is to say many thanks for joining our Harvest worship this week. We enjoyed delivering the Harvest message and sharing different songs with you. Thank you for all your donations they a very much appreciated. The donations will be collected by The Trussel Trust.
Have a wonderful weekend Y6, you deserve it.
