FRiday 15th march
This week has been another fun-filled week in Year 6. Having finally reached the end of Ice Trap, the children have been planning and writing their own newspaper reports based on Shackleton’s Antarctic adventure. The final pieces all look very interesting and we are looking forward to publishing them.
In maths, we have been tackling % of amounts and ratio. The children have been working really hard at solving word problems by applying their knowledge. Although a tough concept, we have been having plenty of success so well done everyone.
We are continuing to look at living things in our science lessons and are still monitoring our bread for signs of mould. Some of the children have really been intrigued by mould and 1 even went home and grew their own.
All 4 classes have now been to the Centre of the Cell and enjoyed a really interesting and informative trip. We will now use the facts we learned in our new topic on Evolution and Inheritance.
Red Nose Day was a great success and Year 6 (including the teachers) had great fun dressing up in red to raise money for a fantastic cause. Well done to everyone.
Enjoy the weekend
The Year 6 Team
