Good morning everyone,
We hope you have all had a lovely week.
We have been very busy in Year Six this week, in English, the children have been revising how to punctuate direct speech correctly. Mrs Oliver’s group acted out a range of conversations then wrote these down in their books. We had some wonderful ideas and it was great to see so many children working hard to keep their presentation neat. Mr Prince’s group have been learning about the first American female astronaut to go into space, Sally Ride. We read a non-fiction text about her life then wrote a first person diary about her experience.
In maths, the children have been revising methods for division and multiplication then using these methods to solve word problems.
In geography, we have continued our topic about ordinance survey maps. This week we have been revising how to write 4-figure grid references. Here is a lovely example of work completed by Noah.
In RE, we have been learning about a lady called Mrs Maricho who gave up her good job in Manila and moved to an island called Natandol to open a school. She teaches 600 children! It is a very poor area and the children have to make toys out of items washed up on the beach or rubbish that is no longer needed, it really made us all feel lucky to have the wonderful resources that we do. Here is a lovely example of work completed by Keira.
We hope you have a lovely weekend.
Mr Prince and Mrs Oliver
