What has been happening in Year 6?

In Literacy, we have been learning how to write detailed Biographies. We looked at famous people’s biographies and then analysed the language and text features. We then had the opportunity to interview Mrs Lane to find out all about her life so that we could write her biography. Once we have written them we are going to display them and hopefully get some on the website.
In Numeracy we have been revising our methods of division. From fact boxes, chunking and both the short and long method, we now should know which method suits which type of question and can use the methods quickly and efficiently. Next week we should be linking our division to fractions.

In Science we have been exploring Electricity. We had the chance to make different circuits using bulbs, switches and lamps. Moving forward we will be looking at series and parallel circuits.
Our Art skills are developing and we have started looking at faces. Our aim is to eventually create a self portrait, but first we have to explore different parts of the face and then think about how these parts all fit together in proportion.
In PE we have been getting energetic with Tag Rugby and Circuit training. Let’s hope the weather stays mild and we can get outside and burn off our energy.

A REMINDER: Don’t forget that you should be reading at home with an adult at least 3 times a week. It’s really important that you talk about what you are reading and look at new vocabulary and text. Make sure your adult signs your homework log. It will earn you DoJo points!
