This week in Year 6 we have started our new topics. In Guided Reading we fed back on the
biographies of famous people that we read over the summer holidays, including Leonardo da Vinci, Florence Nightingale, J. R. R. Tolkien, J. K. Rowling, David Walliams and Malala. In Literacy we have started to read 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'. In Maths, we have done lots of work on the place value of 8-digit numbers. In Science, we started to think about our heart, what it looks like and how it works. We drew cross sections of what the human heart looks like. In History, we discussed why Henry VIII wanted to divorce Catherine of Aragon. In RE, we started our LOVE and CARE topic and started to think about what is done for us by the people who love and care for us.
This week's award winners:
'Mission Statement Award' went to Ozzy for being kind and thoughtful - coming into school every morning to help set up classroom. Showing he is ready to learn in every lesson. Great start to Y6.
'Good Work Award' went to Lily R for 100% effort in all lessons- Lily always puts her hand up to ask/answer qs, shares her ideas and is ethusiastic - well done!
'Star Writer' went to Casey - she tried really hard to write a recount from the perspective of Lucy in 'Lion, The Wirch and The Wardrobe.'
'Marvellous Mathematician Award' went to Amelia - read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10,000,000.
Have a lovely weekend.
Don't forget to complete your reading every night and practise your spellings for Monday morning.
