In Carbon class, we held a public enquiry to discuss the proposal to race power boats on a river that is enjoyed by many. Everyone had an opportunity to express their opinions and ask questions to the different organisations that were represented. It was certainly a lively debate!! We then wrote formal letters to members of our individual organisations to let them know the outcomes of the meeting. Well done Yr6 – they were top quality! In maths, we have been learning about ratios and polishing up on our arithmetic skills. The plastic bottle top collection will continue for the next few weeks so please keep bringing them in; if you have any ideas for the bottle top mosaic please let me know.
In Population class, we have been focusing on fractions this week. We have looked at what a fraction is and the difference between a unit and non-unit fraction. We then moved on to equivalent fractions and how we can use our multiplication facts to help us with our work. It has been British Science Week this week, the children in Population Class have enjoyed the activities we have taken part in over the last week. We got to touch some real life animals, including a huge snake! We helped make a wild flower garden on the field and had an assembly from the World Land Trust. We used recycling to make instruments and made some cool rainforest music!
