Completing tests and showing off what Y6 have learned this year so far, has been the focus for the week. And show off they have . . . with scores upon scores that are increasing in reading, maths and SPAG. I am incredibly proud of everyone for their hard work so far!

When they had finished their assessments, narrative (adventure stories) became the new genre to focus on for English. The film clip ‘Home Sweet Home’ was the focus for the children to develop their retrieval and inference skills. Have a watch and see if you can work out what it is about.

Division is the final area of the four operations unit of maths we have to complete before challenging ourselves to improve our scores on the HOT task. Short division has been the area of focus this week. Have a go and see if you can do them yourselves. No calculators allowed though!

We also launched our brand new topic this week. Survival. The learning began with knowledge about Charles Darwin and will end with an exciting activity to take place in school. Letter to follow.
