In Year 6 this week, we have begun our new writing unit based on Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide to the Fantastical World. The children have enjoyed hearing about the different beasts and looking at the impressive illustrations. So far, we have written poems about trolls, made warning posters about cockatrices and written diaries as mischievous boggarts. In maths, we have been looking at our assessments to practise areas we are unsure of.
In PE, we learnt how to leapfrog. Year 6 made sure they provided a sturdy base for their partner and learnt the appropriate technique for leaping.
At Pope Paul this week, our RE learning has been about other faiths; the focus in Year 6 was on Islam. The children have learnt about the 5 pillars of Islam and, in particular, on their pilgrimage to Mecca (Hajj). I was really impressed with their questions and the way they could see similarities between our faith and theirs. Well done, Year 6.
Have a wonderful weekend
