Last week we did a number of things that we enjoyed.

On Monday, in English we wrote formal letters to Mrs Hay about how we could improve school lunches for everyone. We really enjoyed this because we got to share our voice and our suggestions. In Maths we rounded any number to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. In our R.E we focused on how we are all loved unconditionally by God and Jesus. We wrote about Paul and how he gives us hope that everybody can change.

On Tuesday in English we worked on whiteboards looking at how commas can be used: in lists, for speech, for embedded clauses and to change the meaning of a sentence. In maths we read scales with 2,4,5 and 10 intervals. In the afternoon we did science and completed one of the longest writes of year 6 so far. It was an information text all about how the circulatory system works.

On Wednesday, in maths we solved problems and reasoned using negative numbers. In English we wrote an informal letter to someone we know, it was very fun to use different language in our writing. In history we researched the feelings and experiences of evacuees. We read different sources which gave us information about how evacuees felt. Also, some people did third space!

On Thursday in English we did a comprehension about the first extract of a book, The boy in the tower. We answered a variety of questions and predicted what will happen next. We did pe in the afternoon, football, practising passing and having mini games, which we all enjoyed taking part in.

Friday was very exciting! We had a cake sale for the Macmillan coffee morning, we had lots of cakes donated and raised an incredible £836.33 as a school! All the money we raised is going to Macmillan cancer support to help those who suffer with different cancers. In class we completed our weekly spelling and times table tests. We had our praise assembly in the afternoon and the children shortlisted for Head Boy and Head Girl read their speeches out.

It was a very busy, but excellent, week in year 6!
