Year 6 - Columbus

Weekly Update (Week ending 06.12.19)

Day 48204 of the term and we're almost at Christmas! Despite the festivities all around us, the children have not let this become a distraction (yet), and have been working hard in school. In maths, we have been looking at partitioning percentages and applying it to discounts we may se in shops. In English, we have been focusing on embedding direct speech into narrative, and have been using the John Lewis with Edgar the Excitable Dragon as inspiration for our writing. In history we have been learning about the role of women in World War 2. In Science we have been looking at refraction and how we see light. 

 

Next week we will be cooking Apple crumble using a wartime recipe. We would be very grateful if the children could bring in £1 to contribute towards the cost of ingredients and equipment. Thank you.

Everyone looked fabulously festive in their Christmas jumpers on Wednesday. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Miss Wheeler
