Katherine Johnson class update w/e 20/11/2020

We’ve had a really interesting week learning about gender equality around the world – what it is and how it has changed over time. We have discussed whether gender equality exists in 2020 and have decided as a class that there is still a long way to go! The Suffragettes fought for justice 100 years ago and we have learnt how women lived before the war and how it is different to today.

In maths, we have learnt all about multiples, factors and prime numbers! Please ask the children all about them – they’ve become experts!

In english, the children have started drafting their own story of The Highwayman, using words from the poem!

We have also discussed anti-bullying and the children have created posters to help us all remember to be kind!

Martin Luther King Class Update 20.11.20

On Monday we completed our ‘Carnival headdress’ design project with a fashion show. There was a fantastic buzz in the classroom and the end pieces looked amazing- there were plenty of proud designers watching the show!! Well done Year 6 excellent collaboration  and design work.

In maths, we have been working really hard, learning how to add fractions and applying our skills to solve problems and puzzles. We are making great progress and becoming much more confident of our own abilities.  

In English we have been focussing on integrating dialogue to advance action and develop character- once again you have delighted me with your written work.  Your written pieces about ‘The day I was asked to babysit’ were not only well structured and punctuated but also very entertaining!

Rosa Parks class update w/e 20/11/2020

In maths we have been using place value counters, number lines and the written column method to add and subtract numbers with exchange.

Topic has been very exciting as we have used our skills as public speakers to share our knowledge of our topic the Romans. We were all very impressed with each other’s speeches.

Well done Rosa Parks. We are both very proud of you!

This week we have been doing some excellent writing. We have used some brilliant vocabulary, great descriptions and alliteration.

On Wednesday we used a variety of percussion instruments and learnt the words dynamics, tempo and rhythm.
