Maths: This  week  in maths we have be doing multiplying and diving fractions. It sounded hard but after a couple of lessons of doing it, we understood it really well.

English: In English this week we watched ‘Oktapodi’, a short film about two octopuses who are deeply in love. We then had to write the short film as a story and create cohesion by using adverbials. 

We have now moved on to our new topic, which is called Going For Gold. This will include: Greeks, Olympics and the Human body. We attempted the traditional Greek dance—The Zorba—and even tried some Greek food! We tried: halloumi cheese( squeaky cheese); goat cheese (feta), pitta bread, hummus and olives.      

Here’s the Zorba video if you want to try it for yourselves!

Happy New Year

Welcome to 6LDC’s blog.

English: In English we have been learning about brackets, dashes, colons and semi-colons. We learnt them by writing sentences and placing the punctuation in the correct position.

Mathematics: In maths we started to learn how to times a fraction by whole numbers and by other fractions. We used numicon to help us work them out. (e.g) 1/10 X 3 equals 3/10. We have also signed up for Times Tables Rock stars.
