Then finally, at the exit point, we presented our findings. We focused on the facts – only using evidence to draw conclusions. We ensured that all investigations were both fair and reliable and then we created theories as to what happened based on all the available evidence. These theories often varied from one group to the next, but the one common thread was that the culprit was Mr Tom!!
Following on from writing a biography of David Walliams last week, Y6 decided to write an autobiography! We discussed the differences between the two before planning our own autobiography in chronological order. It was harder than we thought and had to get our parents help as we could not remember being a baby! We practised writing in an informal style to keep the reader entertained. Obviously we are only 10 or 11 years old so we did not write more than 2 pages but we finished with a summary of our hopes for the future. Maybe in 20 years time we can write another one and see if our hopes came true!
In year 6 we have been continuing to practice our prime numbers in preparation for our rap battle! Our challenge is to memorise and know the prime numbers between 0 – 100 but also to be able to say them as QUICKLY as possible! A prime number is a number that can only be divided by one and itself. Do you know the answer to the following?
- How many prime numbers are there between 0 – 100?
- Is 27 a prime number? How do you know?
- What is a composite number?
