This week has flown by, and we have packed so much into it. You have worked hard in many different areas of your learning, and I am so proud of you all.
We began our week in maths by tackling different problems using fractions and decimals. We have worked hard to grasp different ways to convert between the two. We have used powers of 10, friendly fractions and the short division method to develop our knowledge. We have been introduced to decimal places and the term recurring decimals. Taking our time to build our confidence has helped everyone to feel some success which has been lovely to see. What stars you all are.
Our main objective of our english lessons this week has been word banks. We have used images to develop words that are powerful enough to make onto our display in readiness for our shared write. We have also created our toolkits and we have boxed up our ideas too. We will begin to draft our shared writes next week.
Our book club sessions this week were split between reading with an adult and preparing for our courageous advocacy worship. Thank you for joining our worship today and supporting our learning.
Our spelling and grammar focus this week has been subordinating conjunctions and how to use them successfully. Our homework this week reflects our learning.
We have begun a new spelling focus this week. We are thinking about suffixes being added to words ending in y. Do you swap, double or drop the y when adding a suffix?
Our big art is well underway as we have now begun to create our cave walls. We will continue with our pieces next week. Please remember your art shirts for next week as we will be using Modroc and it is very messy!
In RE this week, we have thought about the term salvation. Our big question of where in a church are signs of salvation will drive our learning over the next few weeks. We began by looking at the position of salvation on our Bible timeline. We then looked at the picture of a lifebuoy and what this might mean. Saving someone is our thought so far. We were then given two pictures, one of Nemo and another of a cave and people. We will use these pictures next week to continue our learning.
We enjoyed using our glockenspiels this week in music as we counted sound using the dynamics scale. We showcased them to our partners and explained why we had chosen different rhymes.
Our French lesson this week was all about numbers. We matched each tens number to the matching written French version and joined number bonds to 100.
We have taken part in two PE lessons, one with Mrs Jenkins and one with Sportscape.
We have enjoyed our third forest schools lesson this week with Mr Hadfield. We began by enjoying time in the snow with our reception buddies. We made different shapes and sculptures in the snow and finished our joint session by roasting marshmallows for them. We then went on to our second session which supported our earlier science lesson of classifying leaves. We used different questions to group our leaves and then tested our knowledge by playing a yes and no game.
What a busy week you have had, and I am super proud of all that you have achieved. You have worked so hard. Well done Y6.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
