We have had such a lovely week in Year 6! We have learnt about the Tardigrade (a very strange creature!), written kennings poems and smashed long multiplication. We have also been getting creative and starting some work on our collage “beasts”. We cannot wait to share the finished product but meanwhile please take a look us creating our backgrounds and the main feature- the eyes!
This week we have been focusing on classification in science linked to our topic Beast Creator. We first tried making a classification key for something we know well (sweets!) and then used our knowledge to write classification keys for minibeasts.
Maths pages- 4 and 5 Place Value
Literacy pages- 4 (Nouns) and 6 (Verbs)
This week in maths we have been putting numbers on number lines up to 10,000,000. We couldn’t resist making some human numberlines of our own!
It has been lovely to welcome back our new Year 6 this week and what a busy week it has been! We have been out on minibeast hunts and created choice chambers for the woodlice we collected. After 24 hours we looked to see which habitats they preferred- there were a few surprises and definitely some escapees!
