Yousafzai Class update

Another great week in Yousafzai class! We have been practising rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000 and shall be moving to round numbers to the nearest 10,000 and 100,000. In English, we have been looking at direct speech and how to punctuate this correctly using inverted commas. We have been enjoying our French lessons which have had a focus on understanding french phonemes and pronunciation. Can’t wait to see what next week holds!

Not only has swimming started this week but also brilliant learning in Malala class! We all participated in a MIJS court case whereby our jury found the defendant ‘not guilty’. This gave us a real insight into our justice system and what justice means. We linked this to our new English book, called ‘Holes’. This is what we are currently basing our writing on. We’ve spent time this week recapping relative clauses and how to use them successfully in our writing. We have some brilliant creativity in our class where sentences are exciting and I can’t wait to read them! In maths, we have been looking at addition in arithmetic and place value in our maths lessons of numbers up to 10,000,000. Enjoy the weekend!

Yousafzai Class update

A great week spent getting to know the Year 6s! We have enjoyed partaking in our ‘Learning to Learn Week’ where we have understood how our brain works and how to make more synaptic pathways! We’ve learnt that asking questions and being curious only helps us to learn and that no question is silly! We learnt that electrical impulses are sent through the brain from neurons and created some art inspired by this using a printing technique. We also looked at the power of yet and the learning pit. We explored the 4 operations in maths (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) by playing a game. I can’t wait to continue learning with the Year 6s – bring it on!
