In our Year 4/5 Maths group we have currently been focusing on learning our times table facts up to 12×2. Each week, we focus on a different times table. To help us to remember our facts we have different games within our maths area.
which times tables facts do you feel the most confident with?
In our Topic lessons, we have moved onto WWII ! This Topic has got all of us excited and i think this will be our best Topic so far in the year!So far we have learned how and why the WWI and WWII started .
In WWII, Germany thought they could easily take over countries so they started bombing,killing people to show how powerful they were.They wanted to control Europe while Japan wanted to control Asia to show how powerful they were and was part of the reasons why WWII started.Year 6 will learn more about this topic and i can not wait ! We are so lucky !
What have you learnt so far ?
To help us remember key facts linked to our History Topic of ‘ The Industrial Revolution’ last half term, we created a presentation in groups to perform in front of one another. Each group were set in ‘Mixed ability pairs’ and were given :
*Our Topic books
*A pack of pens
Year 6 then had to provide a presentation which focused all on the learning that took place during last half term. To help us remember throughout the year, we have created a display in the Year 6 area which focuses on all the key facts, we even used some ‘ spider diagrams’ created for the presentations.

Then we split off into our groups to create our own films using green screen! We had so much fun during our morning! What did you enjoy the most?
We have finally completed our assessment in Art 🙂 Year 6 were asked to recreate a picture taken during P.E on the Key Stage 2 playground in the style of Lowry. We had to think about how to ensure we used matchstick men to represent the different pupils and how to use our landscape sketching skills to draw the houses/ buildings in the background.

Year 6 have been sharing their ‘Detective Stories’ with children across the school!
Year 3, 4 , 5 and 6 have been given their very own printed copy of a book created by Year 6s English group to allow them to be able to read different ‘Fiction Stories’ written by their class friends 🙂
Year 6 have also had opportunities to read their own stories to children across the school !
If you would like a Year 6 to read you their story, let Miss Stockton know 🙂
In Year 6 so far, we have learnt a lot about the Industrial Revolution…
During the Industrial Revolution, poor children often worked full time jobs in order to help support their families. Children as young as four years old worked long hours in factories under dangerous conditions. The practice of child labour continued throughout much of the Industrial Revolution until laws were eventually passed that made child labour illegal.
Do you agree ? Why ? Why not?
