Learning in Year 6:
-In English this week, we completed our information leaflets about places to visit in London. The children will take these with them next Friday. We then began planning our non-chronological reports on autism; these will be completed next week.
-In Maths lessons, we have been looking at ratio. We used this to work out how a recipe to make 12 biscuits can be scaled down to make 4 biscuits. On Friday, we cooked our biscuits and created packaging from a net after decorating them. In the spirit of 'Dig For Victory' during World War II, we used seasonal ingredients that could have been used during the war.
-In Thematic lessons, we learned more about rationing and where our food comes from. We sketched then tried some seasonal fruits and vegetables (peas, strawberries and broad beans). We ended the week using carrots (easily grown during WW2) and flour from our Flour Baby project to make carrot biscuits. We also made the boxes for our biscuits in Design Technology.
-Children have been very responsible throughout our Flour Babies Project. They worked individually and in pairs to look after a bag of flour for one week. The object of the task was to prioritise and organise themselves so that they are thinking of something first other than themselves. Despite some bags of flour being ripped, all the children learnt the importance of being responsible.
-In English, we will be continuing to read our class text ‘The London Eye Mystery’ and carry on with our non-chronological reports on autism.
In Art, we are going to be drawing vegetables in preparation for our propaganda posters linked to WW2.
In French, we will continue to develop our vocabulary about shopping: this will include asking how much an item will cost (combien?), name a few types of shops and list things that they will buy. We will build on our understanding of what we like (J'aime...) and what we don't like (Je n'aime pas).
For Love to Learn, children should bring to school lyrics to their favourite song for our Reading for Pleasure sessions.
