This is our final week exploring the themes of the hugely popular Wonder in Y6. We have finished this text study by writing a letter to the schools of Phnom Penh, persuading them to introduce Wonder into their curriculum. We wrote detailed plans that followed a clear structure and reflected the formality of the letters we would write. Writing a persuasive letter required a multitude of skills including rhetorical questions, imperative language and conjunctions. Combining our knowledge and skills we have written letters that are extremely informative and persuasive!
In maths this week Y6 have been looking at coordinates. Coordinates can be tricky because you need to remember the order in which they go. To help us remember we said that for the x axis, you travel into your house along the corridor to the fridge before you go up the y axis stairs! We applied our knowledge by answering a range of questions to find missing coordinates on a plotted graph. We also practised translating shapes to identify old and new coordinates. We then looked at shapes on a graph and their reflections across positive and negative y and x axis.
