Y6 News of the Week
After resting over the weekend, we began our week with Maths. This week we have continued to investigate place value. We have compared and rounded numbers into the millions we have worked with negative numbers too. Before we move on to a new unit, we will consolidate our learning and assess our new knowledge.
This week in Book Club we have focused on language devices, in particular the use of dialect in writing. Our novel is filled with dialect from different parts of the country and this has allowed us to delve into it with a greater understanding. Holes has also been introduced as a comparative novel.
In English we have begun our recount writing using our life experiences of PGL. We have created a useful timeline and a class word bank we can all dip into. We have analysed different recounts looking at their features and useful paragraph starters. Next week we will continue with our first draft and edit to improve.
Our SpaG focus has been adverbs this week. We have looked at adverbs of time, manner, frequency and place and will try and include them in our writing.
We continued with our History topic this week. We have taken part in a Press Play computing workshop which has given us the opportunity to engage with role play in a different way. Following a story, and in family groups, we were placed within different parts of WW2 as we listened out for the air raid siren and quickly made our way to safety. We considered what it must have been like to be in a real shelter, and from our shelter listened to Neville Chamberlain's speech to the country, announcing that we were at war! We were evacuated to the countryside and dug for victory! Our class computing time this week was used to research the Axis and Allies powers of WW2.
We began our Science unit this week on ELECTRICITY. Challenging our knowledge, we completed a class quiz and then researched the history of electricity. We will continue with our unit next week.
We have also begun one of our Art projects, focusing on a scene from the Blitz and using a technique called wet in wet for the background. We will be continuing with this next week when we move on to the foreground of our picture. Karl Johnson, the silhouette artist with be our inspiration.
RE this week has taken on the theme of light as we began investigating our big question, why is Jesus Light of the World good news to Christians? We will continue with this unit next week.
In French this week we have revisited our learning from last year and introduced our new unit All About Me. We are focusing on useful — 'instructions de classe' and will continue with this theme next week.
In Music this week we continued with Music through WW2. We are beginning to learn songs and understand the meaning behind their lyrics.
PE this week focused on hockey skills.
We finished our week with formal Friday. We completed a place value assessment and discussed the way times tables are tested in Y6.
New homework has been set. This includes: Spag online tasks (2), I have arranged for Spag logins to be stuck inside each reading diary for those who requested them, also on the list is TT Rock Stars practice (as often as possible) and regular reading aloud with comprehension style questions being asked (sample questions are printed in the front of each reading diary).
There is no Mymaths homework, spelling practice or CGP Spag tasks to be completed as detailed in my Autumn newsletter.
We would like to invite you to our Y6 class worship on Friday 27th September 2019. It will take place in the hall at 2.45pm. Hope to see you there.
Have a wonderful weekend Y6, you have been busy bees and I am proud of you.
