In our reading lessons we have been reading Goodnight Mister Tom – our new class novel. We started by making a prediction after looking at the front cover and the blurb and thought of some questions we might like to ask. We then started to read chapter one and met the two main characters Willie (the evacuee) and Mister Oakley. What do you think might happen next in the story? Why?
In Year 6, we have been learning all about light! We have learnt which materials reflect light the best and how light travels. We have been applying this knowledge to an investigation where we made periscopes! Following this we have written our own detailed set of instructions on how to make a periscope!
What can you remember from our topic?
Can you tell me what the key words: opaque, translucent and transparent mean?
It was Anti-bullying week this week and in Year 6 we discussed all the different types of bullying including online bullying and what we can can do to help. In our lessons, we have created a leaflet which helps people who are being bullied and reminds them of all the strategies to help!
In maths we have been doing lots and lots of work on fraction methods and we have just finished our topic of measure!
Our next topic is on area and perimeter and we started by looking at shapes that have the same area and different perimeters and vice versa.
Can anyone think of a shape that has an area of 50cm squared?
Our new topic for this term is WW2! So far we have looked at WW1 to help us understand a little better. We’ve looked at how WW2 started, who the allies and the axis where and who some of the famous people were. We then thought of some fab questions we would like to find out about!
We have begun to look at maps of the allies and axis and which countries invaded each other. What can you remember? (I’ll give you a clue)
