Year 6

Update for Week beginning : 19.05.2017

English and Maths information:

This week we have been writing speeches in English based on the title, ‘If I ruled the world.’  We are really focusing on ensuring that all the aspects which make a Year 6 writer ( of which there are many!) are included in every piece of writing. We are looking forward to doing some Maths problem solving projects over the next few weeks in which we will be able to apply all the skills we have learnt this year.

Other curriculum news:

This week, we enjoyed a really exciting parkour session in PE with Mr Burke from St Katherine’s  – our follow up session will be next week when we will be learning to go from one move to another.  We have also launched our St James election project which will hopefully enthuse the children about voting and democracy.

General Information:

Home learning for this week – To discuss and consider the St James political parties and potential policies ( see sheet given out).
