It’s been another wonderful week of learning in Year 6. The children continue to be settling in beautifully and are consistently showing our school values of respect, courage, empathy, trust and gratitude.

In Maths, we have been solving problems with two unknowns. We started with cuisenaires and then used this to springboard into some trickier challenges.

Here are some problems to try, for extra practice at home: Maths A1 W4 Two unknowns

In English, we have been planning a story based on the brilliant book ‘The Viewer’. We have been closely following the story structure from The Viewer to help guide our writing. Next week, we look forward to publishing our stories.

Here are our key spellings for the week, focusing on different ways to spell the sound ‘ee’:

category
cemetery
familiar
submarine
protein
immediately
scenery
community
convenience
marine

In our project lesson, we learned about the rise and fall of the British Empire, including some key events like the American War of Independence and the colonization of Australia. Children, what dates can you remember?

During our STEM morning, we learned about the life cycle of non-flowering plants…

Next week

  • Remember, Monday the 3rd is an INSET day
  • In Maths, we will be focusing on mental addition and subtraction and rounding to the nearest 100,000 and million
  • In English, we will be writing our story, with a focus on writing complex sentences that include a main clause and a dependent clause, correctly punctuated.

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend.
