8.2.20 This week in Year 6, we worked on planning a diary entry for a steerage (3rd Class) passenger on Titanic, which involved a very different vocabulary from our 1st Class writing. Next week, we will be using these newly-learnt words in our final piece of writing, which will hopefully be just as good as our last Titanic-based text!
We have also just finished our mathematical topic of fractions, decimals and percentages. The children have faced some challenges such as finding percentages of amounts and conversions between all three.
In other news, Year 6 has continued Gymnastics in P.E. and have been attempting cartwheels. Some were successful, others were not. Everyone had fun though!
At the end of the week, the year 6s have been learning about the tragedy that may or may not be the death of our planet, climate change. They have learnt about the melting of the icebergs and the albedo effect. This is when dark materials absorb heat and lighter materials reflect them.
A peaceful week in Year 6, but check back next time to find out what else is new!
2.2.20 Year 6 have started the new term excited for the varied activities that await them. They have recently started learning about an amazing (but sad) topic, the sinking of the Titanic. To help widen their growing knowledge on this historical topic, the majority of the children have been watching the well-known film Titanic starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, and writing some letters in character.
In maths, the children have been strengthening the ability to round, multiply and divide decimals. They have also practiced changing between fractions, percentages and decimals. Even though there have been some tricky questions have been asked, the whole year have been doing brilliantly.
Also this week, Year 6 has started their new P.E topics – Gymnastics and Fitness, both of which have been enjoyable and helpful for our fitness. Finally, our practice SATS happened recently, in which every student pushed themselves to be the best they could be and have better scores when its time for SATS in May.
As you can tell, throughout this week Year 6 have been working incredibly hard this week, and their efforts from next week will be shown in the next update!
