Year 6 – 01/03/19

This week, we have been recognising the first half of Fairtrade Fortnight: on Tuesday afternoon, the Fairtrade Group went to The Wroxham School to teach them about the principles of Fairtrade and to encourage them to purchase Fairtrade products. They spoke very professionally and were truly living out the Catholic calling of working for the Common Good.

This morning, Year 6 worked with Year 1 to make their own role plays explaining why we should be buying Fairtrade products where possible.

Also this week, we were kindly visited by a volunteer from the church who demonstrated burning last year’s palms into ash for this coming week’s Ash Wednesday masses.

In English, we have started – along with the rest of the school – our new text, The Adventures Of The Dish And The Spoon; in maths, we have been learning about circle geometry and properties of 3D shapes; in RE, we recorded podcasts about the Sacraments of Healing (QR Codes to be included in next week’s blog to listen to these – watch this space!); in PE, we took advantage of the fantastic weather and did some athletics outside.

This week’s home learning (due Tuesday 5th March) is as follows:

Spellings The adjectival suffix –ful becomes –fully when turned into an adverb. From the list below, write spelling sentences choosing either the adjective or adverb version of each word (eg. If you write on for hopeful, then you don’t have to write one for hopefully). I want to see a mix of both though.
