Autumn Term Update:
Since starting back to school, Year 6 have been extremely busy and have all settled in well with the new routines and expectations regarding their increasing independence. It has been a delight to see that the children have all responded so well to their new roles and responsibilities, as well as being positive role-models for the younger children.
In maths, the children have got used to moving classes and swapping teachers. So far, within lessons, there has been an emphasis on speed and accuracy in arithmetic, something we will continue with throughout the year. Additionally, the children have been manipulating whole and decimal numbers up to 10,000,000 whilst working on Place Value.
During English and Reading lessons, the children have immersed themselves in our text of the term - 'Pig Heart Boy' by Malorie Blackman. They have used higher level thinking skills and been empathetic towards Cameron, the main character, in order to write diary entries and balanced arguments about xenotransplantation and the morals behind the theory.
Our learning in IPC is called ‘A Healthy Heart’. So far, the children have looked at the circulatory system in the human body, where we have deepened the children’s understanding of how their bodies work.
