Martin Luther King weekly class update 07/05/2021

On Friday, we performed our live newsnight reports for the documentary ‘History Unravelled’ to the rest of the class. There were slides, studio presenters, on the ground reporters and even ‘hamsters on a piano’!! Not only were the performances very entertaining but they also taught us a lot about the similarities and differences between the Mayan and Egyptian pyramids. Well done to everyone- especially those of you who were a little nervous about speaking in front of everyone – you were fantastic.

This week we have been learning about the Mayan City States. We have tried to put ourselves in the position of the King by planning our own city and mapping it out using natural resources from our woodland area.

In English, we have finished writing our story ‘The Explorer’ and we are busy planning our own independent story which we will be writing soon.

In maths we have be learning about circles. We have mastered the art of using a compass and completed a paperclip investigation which involved drawing circles and finding the relationship between the radius and diameter. This week we are competing against year 4 (the winners of last week’s Yr3,4,5 challenge) in a Rock Stars tournament – This ends on Monday 10th May so keep going year 6!!!
