Year 6 have started getting very exciting about our upcoming London trip. This has been spurred on by our designing competition for our class hats. Every year, the children are given a beanie hat each to keep them warm and visible amongst the busy streets of London. The children have the opportunity to choose the colour of these hats and design a small motif for them. The class voted for the colour red this year and Sean McAllister was the winner of the design.On Wednesday, the hats arrived and they were all very excited to see them. I’m sure you will all agree – it looks brilliant. The children will receive their hat when they arrive at school to depart for London.
We’ve been learning our class story, The Papaya that Spoke. We are very enthusiastic storytellers! Ask us to tell it to you.When we were confident that we knew the story off by heart, we began to innovate it and write our own versions of the story.We drew new story maps and used them to write fantastic stories.In our Geography session we worked as teams to find the names of the oceans of the world.In Maths, we’ve been working hard with money. We’ve been adding money, finding change and looking at different ways to make totals. We really enjoyed the challenge on problem solving Friday.

We have been twisting a lot this term between learning the story of Oliver Twist and all our country dancing!The children are now starting to change the original story of Oliver Twist by introducing their own characters and settings. We have looked at work houses and industrial schools to find a new setting.Our country dancing is really taking shape with the help of Mrs Bateman. So far we have learnt 3 dances and we are amazing!In maths we have been looking at fractions; this week has been all about equivalent fractions and how to work them out. Next week we will be trying to find fractions of amounts which I know the children will enjoy.We also had the chance to be Isambard Kingdom Brunel this week.Here are the photos
