This week has been focused on thinking about others. As you can see from the photograph, we all enjoyed taking part in ‘Wear Something Spotty’ for Children in Need day, raising money for those children who are less fortunate than we are.
We have also been thinking about the impact of our actions as this has been Anti-Bullying Week, with the theme of ‘All Different, All Equal’. We discussed what bullying is and found out about the different types of bullying. We also know what to do if we are being bullied or if we see someone being bullied.
In English this week we have been finding out about relative clauses, which can add in important information, and have tried to use them in our writing. We have also worked hard on writing a description of the appearance of a character, using powerful language and practising using thesauruses.
In maths we have been working on division, which many found challenging at the beginning of the week. However, due to the hard work and resilience of the children, many of them have gained a much better understanding of division this week. We finished off the week by completing our hot task.
In topic we have been finding out about Charles Darwin and the impact that he had on how we understand all of the species on Earth. We are very much looking forward to discovering more about evolution in the science part of our topic next week.
Leon Burgess is our superstar this week for his amazing improvement in using formal methods to divide. We have gained 35 handshakes, making us winners of ‘The Class of the Week’ award – keep being your amazing selves 6MY!
