In literacy this week Year 6 have been focusing on newspaper reports. Our report centred around the disappearance of Molly, Daisy and Gracie from Moor River Settlement. We practised the skill of using direct and indirect speech to share what key witnesses thought about the whereabouts of the three girls.
This week in maths Year 6 have been looking at number facts including finding prime and square numbers up to 100. We have also been furthering our knowledge of the terms multiples and factors of numbers. We have shown understanding by finding the highest common factor and lowest common multiples of numbers before our big challenge at the end of the week. We worked together in pairs to fill in the numbers on this table. It took us ages but we showed great thinking and resilience skills to finally get all of the numbers in the correct squares on the grid!
