This week, Year 6 were very resilient while learning about how to find the area and perimeter of compound shapes, parallelograms and triangles. On Family Learning Day we practised our verbal maths skills, making sure we were using a range of maths vocabulary and explaining clearly and accurately our mathematical processes and ideas to other learners.
This week, Year 6 has continued to explore fantasy genre stories. We watched a short film called The Dreamgiver. The first time we watched it we predicted what we thought would happen next, using what we knew already about the characters and story. We then looked in depth at the main character and used a thesaurus to make sure we were using precise language to describe him (as opposed to general adjectives that don't give a clear picture.)
Stars of the Week
I was a star for being a resilient learner and making great progress with my communication skills.
I was a star for being a super thinker when problem solving to solve volume challenges on Family Learning Day.
I was a star as I was able to reflect on ways to improve my experiment in science.
I was a star because I was a risk taker in PSHCE over the last few weeks.
