Maths

During Autumn 1 of the school year we have covered a lot of different topics in our Maths lessons! We started with place value and negative numbers. We can now use formal methods in all four operations and are beginning to use BODMAS.

An example of long division.

Literacy

We have been lucky enough to explore a variety of different texts this term. We started with War of the Worlds by HG Wells and from this we wrote our very own alien description. In link we our afternoon topic, we have also wrote a diary as an astronaut and a non-chronological report about space.

A diary as Neil Armstrong landing on the moon.
Non-Chronological Report about life as an astronaut.

Topic

Our topic this term has been Space! We have looked at the planets and the Solar System. Using this knowledge we designed, created and launched our very own rockets!

Some of our space work.
We studied why we have different seasons.
Our space art.
Some of our rockets that we were about to launch.

PHSE

As October is Black History Month, we have been focusing upon the prejudice and discrimination of black people from around the world. We began by looking at what prejudice and discrimination actually is and then focused upon famous black people who have faced challenges throughout their personal and professional life. Alongside this, we looked at how different religions view prejudice and discrimination.

Remembrance Day

To commemorate Remembrance Day, year 6 looked at what remembrance day is all about and why it is something which is an annual event.

To begin, we looked at a poppy to see what we could remember and we wrote all the facts we learnt during the lesson in the outline of the solider.
We each made a poppy to commemorate those fallen soldiers who gave their lives to protect us.
