Week 1 term 3
This week has been a short week but a lot has happened! In Maths we have started our ratio topic and in English we have begun to look at crime stories (this week a multiple choice story with a twist!) To link in with our new Trade and Economy topic, we had a go at some FairTrade coffee art - the classroom smelt lovely all afternoon! In P.E we have Hi5 in with us for gymnastics and we can't forget swimming too! This week Year 6 were amazing at the pool, supporting one another and going with a great attitude! It's always hard getting back into something if we haven't done it for a while so we were very proud of them!
MAKE SURE P.E KITS ARE IN ON MONDAY (NOT JUST FOR THE P.E SESSIONS AS WE HAVE A BOXING SESSION ON THE MONDAY AFTERNOON!)
Week 2 term 3
This week we have had a very active week! The week began with a visit from Josh Kennedy who taught us some boxing skills! We have also had Hi5 in for gymnastics, as well as swimming at Hythe (with some tired children falling asleep on the way back!)
This week we have continued our ratio topic, creating scale drawings. We also had Mr Day in teaching different types of averages.. the mean wasn't too mean!
In English we have continued with our crime stories, collaboratively planning multiple choice stories and then making our own decision.
In French we have been time telling; in Science we have been learning about the heart (with a role-play session in the hall) and in Computing we have started to use Spreadsheets. In Geography we began our Trade and Economy topic, thinking about imports and exports, as well as trading in the classroom!
Week 3 term 3
This week we have been writing our own crime stories as well as developing our ratio and proportion understanding. In Science we investigated our heart rates, seeing how it increased with different exercises and using our resting bpm as a control. In Geography we have been researching different countries and their imports and exports. In Computing we have been using Spreadsheets to calculate and in French we have been time telling.
Week 4 term 3
We had an exciting start to the week, having a visit from Detective Lawless! The children asked superb questions that they came up with for homework and really got Mr lawless thinking! This week Year 6 have continued to impress at swimming, being excellent role models for the school! They have worked hard in their Pixl termly assessment this week and got through a range of papers including reading, GPS, spelling, Maths reasoning (two papers) and arithmetic.. well done Year 6! We have started to look at our new unit - explanation texts. In Maths we have started our algebra unit and looked at 1 and 2-step function machines. We have been time telling in French and enjoyed a French 'What's the time Mr Wolf?' Quelle heure est-il Monsieur le Loup? In Science we have been thinking about what blood contains and made our own blood. In Geography we thought about trade and economy and focuses on El Salvador and in Computing we have continued our spreadsheet work. We also received our certificates for the English National Opera project and watched our final piece on their website!
