Year 6 Blog!  Keep an eye out for the updates every week! 

Week commencing 24th September

This week in reception they have been learning to count and are starting to learn their phonics.

In Year 1 they have been up to the forest finding dead, alive and never been alive.

Over in Year 3 they have been making brilliant phone cases and investigating exercise.

In Year 4, they have started their topic on Romans whilst year 5 have been learning about human rights.

Year 6 – the Macmillan coffee was a great success.  Thank you to everyone who donated.  

Harvest took place at church on Wednesday afternoon, all the children performed well and we all enjoyed the service. 

 

Literacy

The children have been looking at the current topic of plastic pollution. They have written a biography on Boyan Slat, wrote a persuasive letter to Jake Berry and even sent off for a Blue Peter badge. They have been really pro-active about ways they can get the message out about reducing the use of single use plastics. They will be finishing off this topic by writing a fictional narrative about how a sea creature comes up with a plan to save it's home!

 

There are many websites you can access to learn more about this.

Numeracy

We have been focusing on shape.

Our current work is on calculating areas of compound shapes, triangles and parallelograms. 

Why not try looking around for objects around the home that you can measure and work out their areas?

Bring in your workings for bonus team points!

Geography

Our current unit of work will be exploring the physical and human features of places as well as settlements and biomes. 

Our focus will begin in Northern Ireland, locating well-known landmarks and identifying the counties. 

We are currently creating a map for display. Bonus points will be given to anyone who creates a little landmark information card to add to the display!

Computing

We have been creating an advert using IMovies on the IPads. The children have been looking at how adverts persuade people. They have been creating their own advert to persuade people to stop using single use plastics. Watch this space for some of the children's fantastic examples!!

Some children have been creating their own at home and bringing them in for everyone to see. 

A useful guide to help use IMovies can be found here
