Year 6 – 01/01/18
In maths this week, the children looked at the properties of 3-D shapes and learnt about shape nets.
In English, the class wrote their own non-chronological reports on a mythical creature that they had designed. They wrote in the style of The Spiderwick Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You and I must say, these children have wild imaginations! They accompanied their writing with annotated drawings of their creatures, so these will be compiled into our very own Year 6’s Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You in due course!
On a similar theme, this week’s science has seen the children learning about animal adaptations. The Portuguese man o’ war and the hagfish were particular favourites! They then designed their own animal to live in a given habitat, and again they showed what vivid imaginations they have!
We jumped back to the 1920s for this week’s PE lesson, in which we learnt the basics of dancing the Charleston. There was some great footwork going on!
Next week is Other Faith Week, during which time we will be furthering this term’s learning on the Jewish festival of Passover. Along with Year 5, we will get the chance to hear about it firsthand when we visit the synagogue on on Wednesday.

Have a nice weekend.
It was a fun week and it was challenging in some ways but it was fun overall.
