Friday 1st March 2019
This week has been another busy week in Year 6. In Literacy, we have continued our work around Shackleton and his extraordinary expedition. Having finished the text, we have been really exploring how the different characters would have felt at the end of the story. We thought about the different questions that people may have wanted to ask Shackleton and the crew once they had been rescued. We have also started to look at newspaper reports and their features as we will be writing our own in the coming weeks.
In Maths, we have been looking at area and perimeter. The children had to use formulae to work out the answers and they are now able to calculate the area and perimeter of quadrilaterals, triangles and compound shapes.
In Topic, we have continued to learn about life in the Polar Regions and in particular how the Inuit people live. The classes used various sources to compare and contrast their own lives with those who live in the Arctic.
We would like to remind you of a few events that are coming up next week. Beech and Mulberry classes will be visiting the Centre of the Cell on Wednesday 6th March. Whilst On Thursday 7th March, we will be celebrating World Book day
Enjoy your weekend,
