Class 11 have had a brilliant first full week in year 6. We have been internalising our text map in English and analysing features used by the author. As well as learning about the inside and outside of the eye and labelling the different parts correctly. Everyone has been working really hard and made an excellent start to year 6.
This week we have been writing about Jekyll and Hyde and we have our first two published pieces of writing on our Year 6 Incredible Writers display. A big well done to Sophie and Liam, keep up the fabulous writing.
Class 11 have had a busy week, innovating and writing our change stories linked to Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. As well as revising written methods for calculating multiplication questions and applying these to solve multi-step word problems. Remember to keep practising your times tables!
This week, we have started our new English unit: explanation texts. This started with a game of Catchphrase, where the children had to guess what an image linked to our model text was, by removing a square at a time. A great time was had by all. We have also been reading for pleasure in our reading area.
