In maths, we have been learning about area and perimeter, looking at area and perimeter of squares, rectangles, triangles and composite shapes. We have also been developing our CLIC skills. 


In R.E. we have started our new topic Vocation and Commitment. We looked at our big question what is commitment? And thought about the commitment people show in their lives. 


We planned our own trips to Japan and had great fun learning new tricks on google sheets. We also created our Hakas during enrichment Friday. 

In science, we looked at what our resting heart rate is and created a class graph to display our results.

Year 6 have worked really hard this week.

In Maths, we have looked at measures of length, weight and capacity. We have thought about converting measures and reading scales.


In R.E. we continued to look at the Story of the Prodigal Son and thought about how we can use the Beatitudes in our lives. As we have come to the end of our topic  we have thought about how we will take our learning forward and also answered our big question again "Do we have to earn love?"


We have started to write blogs for the World Cup and during Enrichment Friday, we researched the Haka. 


Thank you for coming to support us in the Harvest Festival. We used our pupil voice to decide upon our song and costumes. We hope you enjoyed.

In English, we have started to look at persuasive texts. Mrs Taylor has set us the challenge of writing leaflets to persuade people to visit our school.


In maths, we have looked at place value. We have shown that we can read and write large numbers, multiply by 10 and 100 and multiples of 10.
