This week in literacy Y6 have been looking at persuasive writing. We analysed features of persuasiveness that advertisers use, including the use of catchy slogans and rhetorical questions. We then designed our own advertising campaign for a selection of random, hard to sell items. We had great fun filming our own TV adverts with lots of persuasive spoken language.
This week in maths Y6 have recapped how to find area and perimeter of squares and rectangles. Following on from that children then had to find the perimeter and area of compound shapes. This was more challenging as the children had to demonstrate their previous learned knowledge to find missing lengths before splitting the tricky irregular shapes into two or three regular shapes, then adding them together!

Why do we have dreams?
Why are dreams so weird?
Why do they get scary?
Many cultures believe what we dream about affects our real life and that we can read our dreams. What do you think about this?
