Time is flying past and there’s so much going on in Y6! Over the past couple of weeks, we have been very busy.
In English, we have been looking at ‘A River’ by Marc Martin and have been doing lots of work based around this. Here, the girls are hot-seating each other as the characters they have created.
Having revisited place value and developed our understanding of numbers to 10 000 000, we have looked at rounding numbers and decimals. This week, we have focused on addition and subtraction.
We made bread rolls as part of our work on Harvest, using our maths skills to make sure we measured the ingredients carefully.
Our RE work is now focused on Judaism and we have looked at two Jewish festivals so far: Sukkot and Rosh Hashanah. During Sukkot, Jews spend part of their time in a ‘sukkah’, a temporary hut which reminds Jews of the temporary shelters their ancestors lived in whilst they were in the wilderness. We created our own mini-sukkah in our Forest school area. For Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year), we made cards with paper weaving on the front. The symbol of the apple is because Jewish people eat apples dipped in honey as a symbol of the sweetness of the new year ahead.
On the 30th September, we joined the rest of the school on the Trust Big Day Out to the Tropicana. We had great fun building sandcastles, making sea urchins and joining in multi-sports on the beach as you can see!
