In English this term, Year 6 are writing persuasive adverts, based on our whole class reading text - Holes by Louis Sachar. In writing, the children are using a variety of transferable sentence types as well as persuasive devices. In reading, the children are applying inference skills and summarising key parts of the class text to understand how authors portray characters.
In History and Geography, Year 6 are studying the country - Mexico. The children have used atlases to locate the country and significant places. Using their online research skills, they are writing a report about the Maya civilisation.
In Maths, the children are learning how to apply their knowledge of decimals, fractions and percentages to real-life problems as well as using a range of reasoning skills.
This term we will also be participating in Faith Week, International Week - learning about Judaism and Japan - as well as The Arts Week where the children can show their creative side! The children will apply their reading, writing and maths skills across the curriculum during these weeks!
