We had lots of fun during Arithmetic Friday this week where we explored and developed our understanding of equivalent fractions! Here we are trying to find our equivalent fraction partner - only we made it really tricky by making the game a silent one! Y6 did very well and everyone found their fraction friend!
Y6 were amazing on their first visit of the year - our day at Eden Camp! We immersed ourselves in what life was like from different perspectives during World War II and will now be able to use our learning from the day to inspire lots of our upcoming writing and learning in other areas of the curriculum!
We have made a great start with our learning in maths where we have been focusing on place value!
To help develop our understanding of expanded noun phrases, we worked in teams to create some noun towers! Building each layer up, we ended up with phrases that included determiners, prepositions and additional clauses. Our writing will really create a clear image for our readers!
Our first piece of writing in Y6 is a setting description of a devastated scene during the Blitz. To begin, we listened to some sounds and watched a clip featuring the aftermath of an air raid. We used these to generate lots of language for our writing!
