Year 6 Welcome Back!

Home » News » Year 6 Welcome Back!

Welcome back Year 6! It is lovely to hear about your Christmas breaks.
We have had a busy start to the spring term already, focusing on reading, maths and RE.
Reading we have focused on two main things this week: PEE and avoiding 'wasted waffle'. PEE (Point-Evidence-Explain) helps use to include enough information in our answers, back them up with direct evidence from the text and make sure we explain how the evidence backs up the point we make. A Year 6 reading paper is a challenge against the clock and we need to ensure we answer exactly what the question asks and avoid wasting time writing 'wasted waffle'
Maths our focus has been area and perimeter.
In RE we have continued our unit about 'What different people believe about God.' On Wednesday we looked at Christianity and the Trinity, how the concept has been portrayed through art and we used Bible references to find out more about God, the Father; God, the Son and God, the Holy Spirit.
We started our RE today with Maths — we created a Möbius strip: a one edged, one sided 3D shape. We were amazed when we drew a continuous line we ended back where we began without taking our pencil off the paper, and were even more amazed when we cut along the line expecting to get two halves and it ended up twice as big instead! Why did we begin RE with this? We compared the Möbius strip to God, we decided it looked like the infinity sign — God is infinite, everlasting and eternal. We then used this to begin looking at the Hindu life cycle, the everlasting cycle of birth, life, death, rebirth. We went on to look at the Hindu belief about God. Hindus believe that there is one true god, the supreme spirit, called Brahman. Brahman has many forms, pervades the whole universe, and is symbolised by the sacred syllable Om (or Aum). Most Hindus believe that Brahman is present in every person as the eternal spirit or soul, called the atman (BBC Bitesize Website). In pairs we researched one of Brahman's many forms and created a fact file.
Homework has restarted today. CGP Maths homework was set today for next Thursday and tomorrow MyMaths will be set.
Great start back this term Year 6! Enjoy your Weekend.
