Year 6 Class Update
It was great to welcome everyone back to the start of the new academic year, accompanied by a sprinkling of warm September sunshine.
Our topic this half term is 'Hola Mexico' and we started by researching animals in Mexico's diverse habitats as well as volcanoes, deserts and human demographics.
In English we have written poems based on the physical land features and our grammar focus was relative clauses and pronouns, which we managed to incorporate into one of our stanzas. In art, we have nearly completed some beautiful volcano and desert pastel drawings and water colour paintings.
Our class book this half term is the exciting and interesting 'Holes' set in the desert and we would like to thank the generous parent who donated a class set of copies.
In maths we have been reading, writing and rounding numbers to ten million. We have calculated using the order of operations (BIDMAS) and we have started multiplying 4 digit numbers by 2 digit numbers. Keeping up fluency with tables and number bonds continues to be essential and Daily Ten, in which you can set your own challenge levels is an excellent link to a valuable ten minute daily practice.
We have started cricket and netball skills and our RE curriculum begins with understanding Sikhism.
We are looking forward to the term ahead and wish you a safe and restful weekend,
