In Year 6 this week we have been continuing our work on Shackleton and his Antarctic expedition.
In our literacy lessons, we have become roving reports as we attempt to write our own newspaper reports. From creating our own headlines to research the facts, the children have been working really hard and we are looking forward to seeing the final pieces.
In maths, we have been looking at fractions, decimals and percentages and how we can convert between them. Using our understanding of place value lessons have been focused around the different methods of converting one to the other.
In Topic, we have been comparing and contrasting the Arctic regions with Antarctica. These interesting areas of the world have many similarities but also very different features. The children have learnt that they are more than just extremely cold!
In science, our bread experiments continued to be monitored and the children have made some very good observations.
This week, World Book Day saw plenty of interesting costumes. Thank you to everyone who made the effort.
On Monday next week (11th) Holly and Willow go to the Centre of the Cell and Friday is Red Nose Day. Children are invited to wear an item of red clothing to raise money for a very worthy cause.
Have a great weekend.
