Week 4 in Year 6
Where is this half term going? It only seems like we came back from the summer break yesterday but another week has come and gone.
Our Literacy lessons this week have been combined with our Topic and we have been busy looking at the Blitz. This has been a real success with some amazing piece of writing. The classes have produced some brilliant diary entries and eye-witness accounts and the topic has really grabbed the attention of the year group. We have been using audio clips and videos to support our ideas and we have been really happy with the work produced.
In Maths we have been covering multiplication and the different written methods. The children have been really focussed on their setting out of their work and checking they aren't missing their 'carry'. The teachers have been really impressed with the effort the children are making. Long may it continue.
We started our swimming lessons this week and we will be continuing this up until half term.
The children have been given Topic homework ideas and we are looking forward to seeing their finished products.
Have a great weekend
The Year 6 Team
