Using all of our new skills and knowledge we have then undertaken our training days assessment and have become forensic scientists ready to investigate the mystery of poor Ms Fee!
Year 6 have begun looking at fractions this week. We completed a Knowledge Harvest to find out what we already knew about fractions and the four operations. We then moved onto converting between improper fractions and mixed numbers. Using a mars bar concept really helped to deepen our understanding.
This week in literacy Y6 started reading a new book, Demon Dentist. We have enjoyed the first few chapters and love the writing style from the author David Walliams. We decided we wanted to know more about the author after gathering facts about him, so we could write a biography. After we used various sources to find as much information and facts about him as possible, we grouped the information together into potential paragraphs and decided which information would not interest our readers. Then on Friday we put it all together in a big write.
