Year 6 News

Week ending 26.11.21

This week, we have been exploring newspaper reports, in preparation for our next Star Write. The children have enjoyed creating headlines and the end of the story of 'A Series of Unfortunate events'. We have looked at using passive voice to create effects and its use in newspaper reports especially. This wil be one of the features we expect them to use in their Star Write.  In Maths, we have been exploring decimals in greater depths; revising our knowledge of multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 and using it to add, subtract, multiply and divide decimals. Using related facts has been helpful to do this too.  In History, we have been finding out how the Maya communicated and about their writing system, which was not dissimilar to the that of the Ancient Egyptians. This has allowed the children to make links with their prior learning - one of our pillars underpinning our curriculum. The visit of the reindeer has also been a real highlight, and we are grateful to FODS for arranging this! 

Question: If you could create your own hieroglyphs, like the Maya, what would they look like?
