Week 1 (w/c 06/09/21) 

 In year 6 this week, we have been learning many subjects. In English we have started our unit based on  the book Varmints. In  history, we are beginning to learn about the Victorians and in mathematics, we have been revising place value concepts.

In English, we are learning how to write in both positive and negative contexts and how gradually the writing changes how the reader feels. We have been writing about all senses including: thoughts, feelings, speech, touch, smell, action, sight and hearing. To do this, we went outside onto the school’s playing field and wrote down the senses as if we were Marty in the meadow.

Our first lesson in history was about chronology. This lesson discussed what had happened before and after the Victorian era, while some children were able to find out what happened during this famous historical period.

Finally, in PSHE, we have talking and writing about what we want to achieve by the end of the year. This ranged from the school football and netball team; to learning a specific language. Every person created a sheet of bunting with their goals on.
