Another super week has passed. I am so pleased with the progress that the children have made with their understanding of area and perimeter. We all seem confident with using the formulae for calculating the area of rectangles and triangles and I was able to see some super problem solving going on today. Well done all.
English has seen them showing me how to write effectively in a formal style after having decided that my police report was not up to standard! They have learnt the difference between writing in the active voice and the passive voice (please ask them to explain) and have also been ‘determinated’ in a grammar lesson (again, please ask!)
We also came to our end of unit French listening task which involved listening to times and people’s introductions about themselves and identifying the key information. I was very impressed with how well they are tuning into the language.
The spellings for this week are in the table below – words with silent letters
Everyone is to learn the left hand column and there are some extension words in the right hand column. Practise the spelling and then write each word into a sentence.
Congratulations to our year 6 cross country runners who did us proud today. I don’t think that anyone could have put in any more effort. They were a total credit to themselves, you and us.
Finally, I totally forgot last week to include some photos of our haggis tasting. It was a big hit in most cases. Roll on next Burns Night.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
