Don't forget to practise the work we are doing in class on Mathletics too - I will be online on Tuesday 4:30 - 5 for anyone who wants to play me live!
Understand maths in everyday life, with this great app from National Numeracy...
You have made a fantastic start to Year 6!
Have a nice break, relax and recharge those batteries for a topic all about light and electricity for when you return after half term.
There is a fancy dress party on 31st Oct (see attached image!) and if you can get to the Spectacle of Light exhibition at Sudeley Castle on 1-23rd December then that would be fantastic too (I will be there at 17:00 on Sunday 4th December, if you want to join me and my family).
For anyone who earns a Mathletic certificate next week, there will be an extra house point in it for you on your return to school!
See you after the break!
What a day...
Amazing experiences: heading off on a real steam train as an evacuee, identifying German spies, speaking to real evacuees, being in an air raid shelter, joining forces with the auxiliary fire service, handling real artefacts...
What did you enjoy? What did it make you think about?
(More photos to follow...)
Lots of artists have interpreted poppy fields in many different ways from Monet's impressionist painting to the incredible sculpture exhibition at the Tower of London last year.
We explored wax crayons to make a semi-abstract piece today; the results were very pleasing and some of them will be on our classroom wall for remembrance day after half term.
The hall looked fantasic for the Tirlebrook Bake Off earlier!
Well done to the school council who organised so much of it!
We talked about using slang and chatty language (colloquial language) today for a diary entry. After that we made some comic strips using these skills alongside some time connectives.
We looked through a recent piece of work we did, to re-draft it, and 'jazz up our sentences' a little more!
The more adventurous vocabulary you can use, the more interesting it should make it for the reader.
All fractions, percentages and decimals can be written as equivalents... can you remember any?
