Y6 weekly news
In maths this week we have begun our fractions unit by comparing and ordering using our knowledge from last week on factors and multiples. As a class we are secure in this area and we will now move onto adding and subtracting fractions, including mixed numbers. We have also completed an end of term assessment which included an arithmetic paper and a reasoning paper. So far we have revisited our arithmetic paper to review and reflect. We will take some time out next week to review our reasoning paper. Well done Y6.
In english we have continued to look at biographies, in particular, Anne Frank's. we have visited an online site called the Anne Frank House and collected important facts. We will now use these to create our own biography.
Our reading focus this week has been on non-fiction. We have used a piece of writing to answer comprehension questions.
Our history and DT continued this week as we used rationed foods to bake war-time digestives. We all used the same recipe to work in small groups beginning with a calculating task. Converting imperial measurements into metric and then using this information to collect and weigh our ingredients. Discussions around adding extra toppings enabled us to realise that rationed foods meant just that. No sugary toppings sorry Y6! We are very proud of the results and hope you enjoyed the produce. Even if a pinch of salt was not really a pinch! We are looking forward to sharing your offerings on Monday. Grandparents please don't have a big lunch!
We have been preparing for our Theme Day in style this week as we welcomed Gracie Reece-Gresty into our Y6 ballroom. Gracie took time out of Brine Lees to support our learning, take your partner by the hand Y6! She spent the afternoon teaching us to Waltz and some different Lindy-hop steps too. We worked hard to master these new steps and we are hoping our grandparents will join us on the dance floor on Monday. Our war-time songs are also ready for us to perform. We hope they will take you down memory lane. Thank you Gracie, you are a star.
We have begun this week to rehearse the songs that are included in our Christmas service. Our choir have taken on some of the verses and Francisca Callwood is also leading a group of children to sing a song in a special way. We hope you can join us in church on Wednesday 19th December at 10.15am to celebrate our service.
Formal Friday did not take place this week as we have sat many assessments and new homework last week was to prepare for Monday. There is only online homework set this week.
Thank you for helping your children to learn their lines, I think we are pretty much there with this task now.
Just a reminder about our Theme Day, children are to come in their 1940's outfit and to bring in their rationed baking. Grandparents are welcomed from 2pm when afternoon tea will be served. Our dancing and singing will come to an end around 2.45pm. We are looking forward to seeing you.
Another date to remember is Wednesday 19th December for our study-book sharing afternoon. This will begin at 2pm and will be in the hall.
Another super, albeit busy week Y6. Have a great weekend.
