We have looked at the physical differences between home and host countries in Geography, and the current and historical links in History. This week we have been looking at how one event can cause an impact all over the globe. In Society and International mindedness were have studied the stories of refugees fleeing war and oppression in search of safety.
This week Y6 have made up characters so we could use our biography writing skills to write autobiographies. This is when a person writes about their own life. As we are still quite young, we made up characters who had done lots of exciting things. We had footballers, dragon trainers, superheros and other interesting people. We used very similar skills to our biographies but the main difference was we wrote in first person rather than first person. We wrote these in our Google Drive accounts so feel free to ask your child to share their learning with you at home.
In Maths, Y6 are being superb enquirers! We have applied our knowledge of algebraic equations and we can now simplify an equation by collecting like terms. We worked together on these questions: Express this equation in its simplest form: 5a+4b-2b+3a-5b+2a. Next week we will be finding the nth term in a sequence. We're looking forward to the challenge!
