This week Y6 have been learning about Ratio. Here's a challenge! If I need 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to make shortbread for 6 people, how much cinnamon would I need for shortbread for 5 people? Y6's have been resilient as well as cooperative with each other whilst re-writing recipes using their knowledge of ratio. We have also had to use our knowledge of equivalent fractions as well!
This week in literacy, Year 6 continued to work on skills linked to books and reading. We read about Roald Dahl on his website and thought about the common themes across his books such as using children as the main character, using magic and often having a problem his characters had to overcome. We worked in pairs to discuss the books we were reading. Our partner would ask us a set question, listen to our answers and then ask a follow up question to test our understanding about characters, settings, genres and the author's intent. We continued to extend our vocabularies by looking up new words we read in our books in the dictionary and seeing if we could use these correctly in a sentence.
