Well done to all of Year 6 this week for completing our assessments! They worked incredibly hard and deserve a pat on the back! In our Writing and Reading lessons this week, we have learned more about how to accurately write and punctuate dialogue. We applied these skills by writing a conversation, during which a character from our class text told another character about the human heart. We used scientific language at the same time as accurate dialogue punctuation.  

Next week, Year 6 will be finishing our class text Skellig and reviewing the book. We would like to show a film of the book; please look out for a consent text from school as it is a PG rating. We will also be learning about these aspects of grammar: subject, object and parenthesis.  


After our Maths assessments this week, we have learned how to add and subtract fractions, Initially, we found out how to do that with fractions that have the same denominator. We then learned how to find a common denominator to add and subtract fractions with different denominators.  

Next week, we will spend more time adding and subtracting fractions to improve our fluency and we will also solve problems involving that skill. We will also be doing some Christmas themed Maths! Ho ho ho! 

Afternoon lessons 

This week, we have completed our clay birds by painting them. We also drew on white t shirts to show what we have learned about systems in the body. We have also spent time talking about and creating presentations to show Christmases of the past, present and future in preparation for our Christmas performance on Wednesday 14th at 2.30pm.  

As part of our learning of the human body and how to stay healthy, we also welcomed in Andy from Kent Surf School, who taught the children important life-saving skills like CPR and the recovery position.


Next week, our focus will be on RE. We will spend time learning about what a church is. We will look at the different features of a church and their significance. We will also be visiting St Lawrence church on Thursday morning and finding out how churches serve their community.
