This week.

In Year 6, we have been looking at Christmas around the world and comparing it to Christmas in England and our own experience of Christmas. We have found out about Christmas in over 20 countries!

One of the reasons we have done this is because we were set a challenge by Becky Lynne ( a former British athlete) who works in Kenya. We have put our information together and created letters that Becky is going to deliver to children in Kenya. 

We have enjoyed finding out lots of facts. We hope we get a response from the children in Kenya.

Maths this term so far…

  • This term, we have looked (mainly) at fractions – included in this are percentages and decimal (and especially their equivalents) – the children have worked really well with these but some still need to learn some ‘facts’ about these. On p116 of their journals is a table showing equivalents. If yo could encourage your child to learn these (if they don’t already know them), it will help them in the long-term; especially with their arithmetic test. 

Indoor PE

This term, we have been doing gymnastics. We have been practising how to move like a gymnast along with various activities. We needed to make a sequence that included: a roll, a plank, a balance, moving like a gymnast and a finish.

Here are some pictures

We hope you like them.

For some reason, it won’t let me add videos. I need to speak to Mr Spencer!

Cross-country

Hi,

My name is Sienna and I am in Y6MB! I used to do cross country but I stopped but then I started again because other people told me I was good at it. There was a race on Saturday 14th October at Parkwood Springs. 190 girls took part and I finished 10th! Yah! I try to push myself to be fit and healthy and achieve a good finishing position. However, it doesn’t matter what position you achieve as long as you take part and enjoy yourself.

Blitz poetry

In Year 6, we have been looking at the Blitz. We have looked at when it happened, where and why it happened, the impact it had in n cities and how cities tried to manage. 

We looked online at facts and figures and we looked at the devastation caused and how this affected the population; both physically and emotionally. We the used this to help create poems based on the Blitz. These have been finished and so now we are creating a visual representation of the poem. 

Here are some early drafts:
