In english we have been reading rhymes with a partner and then read them out to the class. Please go to our video page to see some! In science we continued our investigation on our pulse rate.

In welsh we were finding out more about Harri Morgan and his history. We have read about him in Welsh and will be finding out more about him.

On Tuesday we did indoor P.E and carried on our dance work with our groups. We have to create a routine with a stretch and snap. In english we were learning about Limericks and how they work, using the pattern aabba. Also we had Bible Explorer with Mrs Thomas.

On Wednesday in maths with Miss Jenkins, we did some word problems with division in them, and with Miss Phillips  we learnt more about square numbers. After break we had English and continued with our Limerick work. In the afternoon we had I.C.T with Mr Rothwell, and we made a website using what we know about I.C.T.

On Thursday we did more of our pulse rate investigation and made a line graph in our books. In english we worked with our partners and made our own Limerick. We had more welsh and learnt what Harri Morgan used to fight other pirates.

Today we have played hockey in P.E, which was really fun. In maths we played fraction action and had a go at long division and multiplication. In project work we listened to some jazz and wrote down our opinions. We thought it was quite slow and sad.

This week we have been doing poems in English and finshing our reports in Sicence. In maths we have been doing time, and in Project/History we have been doing a lot of Black History, since it is black history month.In English we have been doing poems. We made up our own poems this Friday which were fast poems which include 2 adjectives, 3 adverbs and 4 verbs and of course a noun for the name of the poem! We read a poem called the Jabberwocky and we did a little made up poem of our own where we looked at a little sheet which explained what the words meant as it was made in victorian times ! We then made a glossary about the victorian words and we made up our own meaning of the words. Also we thought about what the poem meant as we shared are thoughts in partners and as a class. That was our English week.

WB 15.12.14 Last week of term!

No spellings over the Christmas holiday.

It's the last week of term! We have been getting ready for the Christmas period by making our Christmas cards, calendars and we have been peforming our Christmas play. We hope you all enjoyed it!!! We've enjoyed peforming for you.

(In maths) we have been doing some Christmas themed work. One of the problems was based around year 6's favourite Christmas songs. We had to vote for a range of Christmas songs and we had work out the percentage for each song and interpret the information into a pie chart. 

(In English) We have also been trying to finish our novel, Street Child by Berlie Doherty and we've drawn a story map to help us remember what we have read so far.

(In art) we have been doing drawings of stone models, using a massive triangle drawn in pencil. We copied the stone models in line with the triangles edges. (Most pupils enjoyed this.)

(ICT/Art)we have been using the image effects on some photos of ourselves to make our calendars.

HOMEWORK

REMEMBER TO GO ON GOOGLE CLASSROOM AND FOLLOW THE INFORMATION FOR THE BIG WRITE COMPETITION.

Stories are due in by the first day of term but you can submit them any time they are ready.

PROJECT: Please make your own leaflet with information about a National Park of your choice, somewhere other than the UK. It could be a place you have already visited or would one day like to visit - there are many choices! Make it informative and colourful, explaining why it is a National Park and why people might go there - what activities are available? We'll then be able to compare National Parks around the world. Thank you.

Miss Phillips and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work with the Christmas play. Look in the Christmas 2014 folder on the Photo page to see some pictures! Thanks also for our lovely cards and presents. We hope you have a very Happy Christmas. See you in the New Year!
