Year 6

Update for Week beginning : 10.03.2017

English and Maths information:

As it was science week this week, our maths and English learning has been embedded in our various scientific investigations. In Maths, we have been learning about angles when bending light around corners to hit a target. In English, we have been learning to write up scientific investigations.

Other curriculum news:

This week was Science week! We have taken a small detour from our learning about dinosaurs and have concentrated on a wide variety of scientific concepts. The children have explored the properties of light. They  used different prisms to split the light into its individual colours and explored how objects appear differently dependent on the coloured light that they reflect. On Wednesday, we visited the grammar school where we explored the science of exercise, discussed what makes a healthy diet and watched the dissection of a lamb’s heart.

General Information:

Please note: spellings will be given on a Wednesday and tested the following Wednesday.

Home learning for this week:

  1. Multiplication, angle sums and common factor tasks on MyMaths due Thursday 24th March.
  2. GPS home learning sheet due Wednesday 22nd March.
  3. No spellings this week as the children have an extra MyMaths task to complete linked to Science Week.
