Year 6 News

What a great start to the new school year! The children have settled extremely quickly into their new classes and are already bonding with each other well and with the Year 6 staff. They have begun work with enthusiasm and are trying very hard in all lessons. In English, we are using 'The Great Kapok Tree' as a stimulus for writing, which links perfectly with our Geography topic about Brazil. This will be the focus of our first Star Writing next week too. It allows us to unpick some of the reasons against deforestation and discuss our opinions respectfully. In Maths, we are learning about numbers up to 10,000,000 and place value. The children have been practising their shading skills in Art and have been using them to recreate the second half of a rainforest animal's face and are working hard to improve.
