This week has been a busy one in Year 6!
We have started our new topics in our lessons. Our 'Book Club' book, The Explorer, is proving a hit and we've had some really insightful book talk and comments in our reading sessions! We've been writing short extracts based on the book 'The Fox and the Star' in English. In Science, we are learning about physical and chemical changes and spent our first lesson recapping the properties of solids, liquids and gases. We made careful observations of ice melting and came up with some great scientific explanations for why this happens. In History, we are learning about the Victorian era, in particular the Industrial Revolution. We learnt about the three classes in Victorian society and the children acted out what they thought a day in the life of each class would be like. There certainly are some excellent actors in this class! In Art, we have started a unit of work on drawing. We analysed Mayan art, thinking about the patterns, imagery and colours used. We then recreated this in our sketchbook.
The children completed their first Maths SATs papers this week so well done to them all for trying their best in these. We will be sitting the reading and SPAG papers next week too.
Homework folders have been issued with Maths homework due on a Wednesday, and spelling and reading practise expected daily. Thanks for your support with this.
Have a lovely weekend!
