6a’s Weekly Chat!

What a busy week last week was! So busy, in fact, that we didn’t have time to write it up on Friday!

Since Christmas, we have been learning about Greece and the Ancient Greek civilisation. As part of our studies, we planned an exhibition of our work for everyone to see!

On Monday, Demitri from ‘Demitri’s Taverna’ came to teach us about Greek food. Three children from 6a were lucky enough to go and cook with him for the morning, preparing a feast for Year 5 and 6 to share and enjoy.

In Literacy, we have been looking at the story of ‘Theseus and the Minotaur’ and are doing lots of writing based around this. Using drama helped us to explore the feelings of the Minotaur and the Athenians sent as tributes.

In maths, we have been focusing on ordering decimals and understanding decimal place value. We all need to make sure we have learned the equivalent fractions/ decimals that we have discussed, e.g. 0.5 = 1/2. 

 

Whilst doing all of this, we have been making sure our exhibits are the best we can make them and that we are ready to talk to the visitors to our exhibition.

Thursday arrived – and we were ready! The exhibition was a great success and we all really enjoyed showing our visitors around!

Some of the work from the exhibition went to the Town Hall on Friday where it is displayed in the library there.

The week ended on a high as we had earned a treat as we had our 50/50 points of class credit! A fantastic week!
