After a really productive final week of term, we are all very much looking forward to some time at home to recharge and come back stronger in Autumn 2!
Our English learning this week was woven into our grammar studies where the children honed their skills in unpicking word, phrase and clause choices of the writer. It culminated in them independently writing a non-chronological report on wolves, where new facts were learned such as the fact that a wolf’s howl can be heard up to ten kilometers away.
Finalising our study of Creation in RE, the children have been thinking about whether it is easy to be a person of God. Unfortunately there are many problems and conflicts affecting the world, with many of God’s people making sacrifices to try and address these. The Year 6 children went on to think about who else could help make a difference and what they themselves could do.
This links nicely into a pupil driven project we will be undertaking in November to collect foodstuffs and monetary donations for the Waterlooville Foodbank. More information will follow when the children have prepared it.
The major focus in maths this week has been to secure a formal method for multiplying a four digit number by a two digit number. Great progress has been made and we would encourage all Year 6 children to keep dedicating ten minutes a day to pracise recall of their number facts on Sumdog and TTRockstars.
