Year 6 – 04/10/19

This week has been action-packed, including yesterday’s WW2-themed trip to the British Schools Museum in Hitchin. Thank you for the fantastic efforts with all the children’s costumes and props; they looked superb! Have a look at what we got up to:

This morning we were lucky enough to be visited by Richard’s Reptile Roadshow, to link to our whole-school English writing focus on Joan Procter the scientist. There were feelings of fear, achievement, surprise and overall great excitement as Richard brought around snakes, lizards, a cockroach, a tortoise and even a chichilla to hold, and we learnt so many interesting facts about the animals’ adaptations for survival. Thank you to Miss Pringle for arranging this fantastic learning opportunity!

This week’s home learning (due Tuesday 8th October ) is as follows:

English à Semi-colons & colons (A) and Linking ideas & cohesion (A)

 Research: Next week, you are going to be writing a biography about Joan Procter. In preparation for this, please carry out research to find additional information that isn’t covered in the book we have studied this week. Write your findings on an A4 sheet of paper that you can use in our lessons.
