This week in Year 6 (8.1.18)

It has been pleasing to see how well the children have settled back into school this week, ready for a very busy term.

We started our new project, Carnivals, last week, by first identifying the different continents on a map of the world and then the different countries of South America.  This week we made masks and learnt some dance moves based on the film Rio. We then went through the school showing them off to each of the classes. Next week is our trip to the Living Rainforest on Friday.

Our maths focus this week has been algebra and next week we will be moving on to ratio and proportion. In English the children have written diary entries based on a clip from Rio and next week they will be continuing a story about being lost in a rain forest, to link with our project.

This week we also started our revision classes. Monday afternoon is split between maths and SPAG and Wednesday is for reading. Our PE afternoons have been moved to Tuesday (this half term it is orienteering) and Thursday (gymnastics). This means the children need inside and outside PE kit this term. Due to the change in PE days, homework will now be given out on a Thursday and collected Tuesday.

We hope you have a good weekend,

Year 6 Team.
