Have you discovered your 'heatmap' on TTRS? Are there any surprises?
Year 6 News
The children in Year 6 have been working hard on their non-chronological reports this week, about a rainforest creature of their choice. They have discovered many interesting facts and are using formal language and passive voice to inform their readers about the animal, appropriately for the genre of writing. We are working on Chromebooks to aid additional research and to incorporate suitable images too. In Maths this week, we have begun our unit on Fractions and the need to simplify them. The children are realising the need for an excellent knowledge of multiplication tables! Times Table Rockstars is proving such a good way to help the children really get to grips with their crucial area of knowledge. Also online, is our new spelling scheme, Spelling Shed, which is being well-used already. Some are already improving their spelling as the sessions we set in school time add to the games they play as part of their Home Learning. In Geography, we are exploring the controversial issue of Deforestation. This has provided some excellent discussion.
