Week Beginning 24.09.18

This week in Year 6 we have done some fantastic learning. We have covered a lot of objectives and the children have worked so hard. I am very proud of the way they’ve used their animals to respond to the challenges of the Y6 curriculum. Well done to you all.
In our English work we have been working towards creating a setting description of a dark and evil monster’s lair. We have spent a lot of time thinking about the vocabulary and descriptive words we could use to create an image for the reader. We’ve worked on including some expanded noun phrases to enhance our descriptions. We have worked hard on creating simple, compound and complex sentences, using a mixture of co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions. Whilst doing this we’ve been trying to think of different ways to start sentences whether that be a conjunction or a verb. Amongst all of that we’ve thought about using a range of punctuation!
Our maths work has focused on multiplication and division: we have worked on using the compact multiplication method and the short division method to complete calculations.
In our topic work we have been investigating the countries that the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons came from.
We’ve continued to work on our science with a focus on parts of the eye. We’ve completed our research and created our own interactive diagrams.
In today’s celebration assembly we have announced our full prefect team, which includes Head Boy, Head Girl and the Prefects. These children will work together to take on whole school responsibilities and jobs throughout the school day. I know that the Prefect Team will so a fantastic job and will support the younger children adapt and settle in to their new school. Our Prefect Team will be wearing their badges as part of their school uniform so that the younger children can recognise them around the school.
You all deserve a good rest this weekend after a very busy week.
