In Year 6 this week we have been pushing and challenging ourselves to keep going at a task and building our resilience.
In Maths, this took the form of an NRich maths challenge, set by mathematicians at Cambridge University. It was lovely to see the children rising to the challenge, not giving up and engaging in some great mathematical chat.
In English, our we’ve been writing explanation texts. We’ve explained how electricity is made, explained how Wallace and Gromit’s crazy contraptions work and have started to design our own ‘Teacher Pleaser’ machine, which we will be writing about next week.
In Topic, the children were fascinated to learn how much food each adult was allowed to buy during the Second World War. Next week, we will be making our own bomb shelter models.
