This week, the children have read more of 'Fire, Bed and Bone' and are making links to the Peasant's Revolt. From this text, they have considered how the characters are feeling by writing in role - even in role of the mistreated dog - using ambitious vocabulary for effect.
In maths, they have consolidated their understanding of fractions by realising that decimals and percentage are just different ways to convey fractions. They converted fractions into decimals and then into percentage. Towards the end of the week, they began to understand the properties of 2D shapes.
In our topic this week, Year 6 visited the new housing development in our local area.
