Happy New Year and Welcome Back!
The children have come back from the holidays full of energy and raring to go! We have had a week full of fun and exciting activities.
English: This week we have been focusing on colons, semi- colons, brackets and dashes. The children have worked very hard and are now punctuation experts. We also watched a short film called Oktopodi. After that, we worked in pairs to write a short story using adverbials to create cohesion in the paragraph. You can watch the film here:
Maths: We have begun work on dividing fractions. To begin with, we used Numicon to divide fractions where the numerator is directly divisible by the divisor. Then we looked at the relationship between dividing fractions and multiplying and learnt Keep Change Flip!
In topic this week, we have researched how animals adapt to their environments and created an information page all about them. In addition, we thought about how animals use camouflage and created backgrounds and animals using paint and marbles. Can you spot the animals?
Our attendance is back up and we have gained another attendance voucher. Ethan-Jack was our Superstar this week for his amazing can-do attitude! Well done 6MY for a fabulous first week back
