For maths we have been completing our unit of algebra in preparation for our HOT task. The children are now realising that algebra is not as hard as they first thought.

We have also been finishing off our unit in English on non chronological reports in preparation for the HOT write. We completed relative clauses (one of our targets) and have planned our reports ready to write next week. 

With Mrs Higginbottom, we have been working on science. This week we completed a quiz to find out what we knew about healthy and unhealthy food. 

The winner of 6LDC’s Easter Enterprise - guess how many chocolates and chicks were in the jar - was . . . . . . . .  Jayla! Congratulations! Don’t eat them all at once!

In Spanish we have been learning numbers and this week we created our own number clapping games. Take a look at these examples

Percentages hot tasks have been completed this week in maths and have demonstrated some great improvements – I am very proud of all the hard work the children have put in. Our next area of maths to work on is Algebra. Don’t forget you can work on this on Achieve Online at home too.

For English, our focus has been active and passive and the variety of ways to use commas. The children particularly loved learning about active and passive, as they got to play a zombie apocalypse board game. 

If you haven’t already, don’t forget to return your reply slips for the after school and Easter boosters. We would love to see as many of you there as possible.

We have been working on percentages learning the value of them and problems. Finding 5%, 10%, 20% and 25%. We also worked out percentages of money. We completed times table rockstars on 3 times tables and 4 times tables and have moved on to mixed 3s and 4s mixed with division.

We completed a Spag task for our six English lesson. Also ‘scramble’ which is lots of words that had been mixed up - we had to unpick them to find the proper words (spelling pattern ch, which actually made a k sound). We also did a spelling test, ough, cial and tial patterns. 

We learned about blood vessels and the heart. In the next lesson we are creating are own blood out of pineapple juice which is very exciting for us! We have learnt about red blood cells and what they do, in addition to white blood cells and plasma.
