We have had a busy week in Y6. On Wednesday it was Christmas jumper day and we used this colourful opportunity to film our Y6 Christmas song – ‘Step into Christmas’. We had fun filming everyone singing and dancing to this up-beat song and the final result (edited brilliantly by Miss Moore) will be on the school Facebook page next week.
In English we have been editing and writing up our diary entries as a Jewish child in Germany who experienced the horror of Kristallnacht and the extensive anti-Jewish laws. During our grammar lessons we have been revising our knowledge and understanding of main and subordinate clauses and subordinating conjunctions. We have also begun working on a persuasive letter to Hitler to tell him that the war needs to stop.
In maths, we have continued to work with fractions, with some pupils continuing to practise adding and subtracting fractions and other learning to multiply fractions. Fractions are fun and are easy to understand when you know your times-tables really, really well.
Our computing lesson on spreadsheets moved us on from using multiplication in formulas (which we learnt last week), to using all four operations and we learnt how to use the sigma ∑ button to help us when we need to add or ‘sum’ large amounts of data.
