Two Days in Year 6! Friday 6th January

Happy New Year everyone!

Here’s to a lovely spring term. Even though we have only been back for two days, we have been as busy as usual.

Thursday saw us revising our grammar skills by playing “Murder at the Spag Boll” – a detective mystery game where clues were uncovered by solving grammar puzzles. This proved extremely popular, with the children asking for additional time to find the culprit (Eric Pickles!) We completed our measurement unit in maths by converting imperial and metric units and noted that the tallest man ever was Robert Pershing Wadlow (eight foot eleven point one inches!)

We started our new computing topic of Blogging on Thursday afternoon and we look forward to sharing the results with you soon. In PSHE, we considered our personal strengths and wrote down our home and school-based goals.

On Friday we began our dance unit in PE. We are creating a sequence of work based on the sinking of the Titanic – a topic which fascinated the children when we showed them an animated version of events on that fateful night in 1912. We played an apostrophes game in English, as well as categorising “shun” suffix words according to specific rules. In RE, we started  to create our stained glass windows based on our knowledge of Buddhist and Christian symbolism.
