Welcome to Sweden class. We are in Year 6 and our teacher is Miss Walker. Miss Maxam and Mrs Fortescue are our Teaching Assistants.
In Maths, we have been revising how to multiply two 2-digit numbers using the column method and using this to solve problems.
We have been working on our character writing in English and have written some excellent diary entries based on WWII.In History, we learned about the Axis and Allies and enjoyed working together to match up facts about each country – and find them on a world map! And we also learned about how they used codes so we had a go at using the Pigpen code to write our own messages.
We also recapped Romero Britto’s style of artwork and created some pieces of art which will be given out to people at Christmas as part of a charity project.
And finally, Jess received a ‘Winner’ award for some engineering work completed as part of our Science learning last year! Well done Jess!
Well done everyone for a super start to Year 6. Enjoy the holiday!
Congratulations to our first Star Writers of the year: Daisy, Oliver, Peony, Jess, Finlay and Zak! They’ve all made a great start to Year 6 with some excellent writing – well done!
We have also been working on improving our sentences using a ‘slow writing’ technique. Here are a couple of our first attempts – using whiteboards to practise on for less pressure! Some more examples to come from work in books soon.
Our class music lessons are currently being done with half a class at a time to keep in line with safety advice. Here’s one half enjoying a musical warm up from Charanga while the other half were doing some cross-country practice outside!
Our new Science topic is ‘Light’ and we’ve been learning some really interesting facts about how we see. Here are some explanations from children’s books, some independent pieces done for our display and a brilliant (but unfinished) pencil sketch.
Year 6 have been having a lot of fun creating portraits this week. Using Hannah Hoch and the Dada movement as inspiration, we created photomontage portraits using photos, magazines and our own drawings. We hope you like them!
