Fantastic Year 6 – 5/02/2021

This week, Year 6 have been fantastic as always!

As part of children’s mental health week, we discussed the ’10 a day’, thinking about which ones we are doing really well at home and maybe some that we need to think a bit more about. In maths, we have been focusing on percentages, and towards the end of the week, have looked at how we convert between fractions, decimals and percentages. Our literacy has continued to work towards our final piece of writing: a narrative piece based on the Golden Compass. Year 6 have thought carefully about their vocabulary choices and how we can develop this for our final scene.

Finally, in SOLE, we have continued our ‘Darwin’s Delights’ topic. This week, we have learnt how to sketch shells in detail, researched Mary Anning and used this to write a biography about her and planned or recreated Charles Darwin’s plant investigation. Here are just a few pieces of the fantastic work from this week, including two videos of the plant experiment being carried out.


Some children have also been doing lots of other exciting activities. Ben had a go at the PE Plank Challenge with his sister and Lucas has been cooking for his family.
