Welcome back! We have officially been back at school 4 weeks now and Year 6 have been busy working hard and have already produced some incredible work!
In English, we have produced our own short story based on an animation Chaperon Rouge (you can spot some of us writing it up below) as well as a background piece of descriptive writing based on 'The Piano'. The children certainly haven't lost their creative streak over the summer and have produced some amazing writing so far!
In Maths, we have been focusing on place value and working with numbers up to 10 million. We have learnt to read, write, order and compare, round and problem solve in relation to the value of these numbers.
We have just finished our first class novel 'Goodnight Mr Tom' which was a fantastic book about a boy called Willie Beech (an evacuee in the war). This book linked closely to our topic of WW2 which the children are really engaged with. We are all excited to continue learning about this over the next couple of weeks.
In Art, our focus this half term is sketching. We have been practicing techniques such as cross hatching and using different types of sketching pencils to create tone and shadows. If you look closely at the pictures below, you can see us practicing our techniques by sketching animals! I cannot wait to share the final masterpieces with you in a couple of weeks as they link closely with our topic of WW2 and I just know they are going to be AMAZING!
