Welcome back after half term! Once again my groups are showing great enthusiasm towards their learning. In English we will be writing a Poem, Letter and a debate. These will all linked to our new Year 6 Topic - We are Explorers. In Reading we will continue to explore text types some of which will be Geography based and others will be chosen for their content.
In Mathematics the children will continue to work on addressing their arithmetic gaps. As well as an arithmetic focus we also be looking at worded problems to support the children's reasoning gaps.
09.10.2019 So this week my maths group have had lots of fun playing ‘mathopoly’. We used the game to explore their arithmetic gaps. This week we have also covered addition and subtraction of whole numbers and decimal numbers, and today we moved on to looking at percentages. Every day my group continue to impress me with their perseverance and determination to excel at mathematics. I am very proud of them!
My reading group have been looking at a past SATs test paper. They have had to be reading detectives , using their detective skills to collaboratively explore the text. We have been on an expedition, learnt about South America and used drama to make the text come to life! They are continuing to develop their reading skills each week and I am very proud of them!
Over the past two weeks my writing group have been writing and editing their evacuation diary entries. They have all written a well detailed diary entry, using emotive language and age related features. They are keen to get started on their next genre of writing, which is going to be a descriptive paragraph on Pearl Harbour. Well done to my writing group, I am very proud of them.
