Year 6 Week Beginning 26.1.24

This morning, Amelie, Julia and Isabella led the class in a beautiful whole class act of worship on the theme of ‘Peace’.

In response to the bible reading that they carefully selected, the children thought about what peace means to them and reflected on when they last felt this way. Well done girls!

In RE this week, Year 6 have continued their learning about the Exodus story.

In order to deepen their understanding of the significance of the Passover in the story, the class had lots of fun acting it out, before writing about it. They also explored the symbolism found within  Exodus and identified the values, beliefs and attitudes within it too. Year 6 then reflected on how those values, beliefs and attitudes are relevant in their own lives today.

In Maths, Year 6 have been finding the areas of different sized  triangles and parallelograms and in English, they have been writing the first drafts of their Alma narratives, which they enjoyed sharing!

In Science this week, Year 6 have been learning how living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago. They also enjoyed some hands-on learning, exploring the properties of real fossils!

Next week is assessment week in Year 6- I have spoken to the children and explained that they do not need to worry about this, or do anything extra to prepare; this is just to help us to distinguish any gaps in knowledge or misconceptions, and identify children that could benefit from extra enrichment classes.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Ms Pemberton
