Kite Flying Day
This week in literacy, Y6 has been learning about biographies. This is when a person writes a book about someone famous. We studied examples of biographies about Roald Dahl, J.K. Rowling, Usain Bolt, David Walliams and a few others. The learners started by looking at these texts with no clues and they used their enquiry skills to see what they all had in common. Through this, they found out the key features of the text such as using formal language, using third person and past tense. They also identified common facts like when the person was born, how they became famous, what inspired them, etc. We ended the week by researching someone we would like to write a biography about.
In Maths, Y6 are really progressing their understanding of Ratio and Proportion. They are now applying their skills and making a representation of a building using Scaling and Ratio. It's easy to understand the mathematical concept of Ratio when we use concrete apparatus and work together!
