It has been a very quiet week in Year 6!
The children have been working really hard completing some assessments in Maths and Reading. These assessment will be very helpful in identifying any misconceptions or gaps in their understanding, and will also help to inform next steps in their learning.
In English, the class have been very busy composing narratives set during WW2, written from an evacuee’s perspective. This has been part of our unit of work based around the book, Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian. The children have really enjoyed doing these and I am looking forward to reading them!
In History, the children have continued to learn about how Potters Bar was affected by both world wars. After doing some research, they found the exact locations of bombsites around our local area and also learnt how the Catholic church was bombed in Southgate Road. Year 6 also found out the names of the 13 soldiers buried in St Mary’s Cemetery, Mutton Lane.
In Science, the class have been learning about the importance of drinking water and how it keeps us alive.
Gentle reminder-On Wednesday, we have our class mass at 9.15am- we really hope you can join us!
We are looking forward to next week, where we will be learning about Zambia as part of One World Week!
For home learning, please find out about inspirational people who come from Zambia. Choose one person to make an information poster or booklet about and be prepared to talk about your inspirational person to the rest of the class!
Have a lovely weekend,
