Year 6 started the week with one last debate about the controversial decision to make women athletes, who have elevated testosterone, to take a drug if they want to compete in the 400m - 1 mile races. Mr Shannon and Miss Victoria have been really impressed and proud of how maturely the learners have debated over the last week. We were also really impressed with the confidence everyone showed to stand up, and speak formally in front of an audience. We then moved onto investigating adverts using persuasive language.
This week in maths, Year 6 have been recapping their knowledge of different types of data charts. The aim is to be able to interpret an understand information from a chart but also be able to make our own charts for data we collect. We have also been revising topics from earlier in the year.
