Year 6 have started their exciting new topic 'World War Two'. On Tuesday, they explored the chronology of the period and investigated the reasons for the outbreak of war. Yesterday, the children had a brilliant time taking part in our History off the Page day where they were evacuees to the village of Comberwick. Watch this space for photographs!
We had a lovely afternoon on Tuesday where we were looking at how to draw animals. When we first saw that we had to draw a polar bear, we thought it would be really difficult but, by using a step by step guide, we found that using shapes to create the body and our sketching skills, that we could make our polar bears really lifelike!

Year 6 have had a really fun and productive week! They have written fabulous portal stories (watch this space - some will be uploaded) where they made use of exciting vocabulary and stunning setting descriptions.


Today we are tackling the very challenging long division and putting our resilience in Maths to the test!

Year 6 have worked very hard this week in Maths where they have been tackling challenging calculation and problem solving activities relating to multiplication. They are experts so ask them to show you their new skills!


In Literacy, we have been exploring portal stories and using our knowledge of ones we enjoy to create an underwater world of our own. The quality of the writing has been fantastic and Miss Tucker is really excited for next week when we start to create our own stories!

Year 6 have worked really hard in Maths this week to secure their understanding of place value! They though hard about how to explain to someone how to round numbers to the nearest 10,100 and 1,000. Some groups even came up with catchy raps and songs whihc included top tips. 


Why don't you try? What is 34,567 rounded to the nearest 1,000?

Year 6 have had a really positive start to the Autumn Term!


We have been exploring place value in Maths and creating Roald Dahl-esque character descriptions! Watch out for examples of our writing which will be uploaded soon.
