This week has been such a busy and exciting week in Year 6. We have been enjoying activities linked to anti-bullying week and some of us have been taking part in the Bikeability training course.
In maths, we have also been looking at adding and subtracting fractions and, in literacy, we have been writing our persuasive letters to The Ministry of Magic.
This week, the children have been writing persuasive letters to the Ministry of Magic to convince them to release unicorns into the spacious grounds of Hogwarts rather than the cramped environment of Diagon Alley. In maths, we have been learning to multiply and divide fractions. In history, we have been studying the importance of the House of Learning. In RE, we have been learning about the life of The Prophet Mohammad. In computing, we have been coding the character Kodu to move around a world and eat apples!
The children have returned from the Half Term break with renewed enthusiasm and some incredible pieces of homework. The books, which they have produced, have been an absolute pleasure to read and display. This week, in literacy, we have been writing newspaper articles all about Sirius Black’s escape from Azkaban. In science, we have been learning about which processes should be used to separate mixtures of two different materials. In computing, we have been coding. In history, we have been continuing our learning on Baghdad and, in PE, we have been refining our cricket skills.
This week, we have been finishing our amazing Harry Potter stories in literacy, we have written letters home from Baghdad circa 1000 AD during history, created leaflets on Mosques in RE and we have completed our unit on the four operations in maths.
I have been absolutely blown away by the fantastic pieces of creative homework that the children have brought in this week. They are so incredible and imaginative.
I hope you all have a brilliant and well-earned half term break.
