What was your reaction to the photograph of contrasts from Rio De Janeiro?

Year 6 News

Year 6 have been working very hard in Maths this week, focusing on division. We have been concentrating on a formal written method and the development of an efficient method. The next step was to apply it to worded questions and then some very challenging problem-solving situations. Some children enjoyed these challenges so much, they asked to take the sheet home, to continue wrestling with the questions! In English, the children have been writing their own versions of 'The Great Kapok Tree' and presenting the finished products in their Star Writing book. Our Geography topic of Brazil has proved poignant and thought-provoking, as we studied a photograph of contrasting areas of Rio De Janeiro that are very different in terms of wealth, yet right next door to each other. We discussed the need for equality in society, which linked directly to one of the pillars underpinning our curriculum - that of Fairness for all.
