Year 6

What a wonderful start to Year 6.  The children have been working extremely hard in all their subjects.  
 
Here is a little snippet of some of the things they have done this half term. 
 
They have produced some fine artwork using the perspective technique to create the illusion of objects in the distance.  They then painted their picture using watercolours.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
In English, they have been consolidating their grammar work by writing an autobiography.  
 
We have started our history unit – the Victorians and finished the half term off with an immersive Victorian day which was informative and fun.  In Geography, we have been comparing 1890 local area maps of our with current day maps.  Our class reader is Street Child, a story about a Victorian boy called Jim, who experiences the workhouse before living on the streets.  It is another insight into life during the Victorian period.  We will continue this unit after half term.
 
In PE, we have been working on the skills for netball and contemporary or hip-hop dance.  
 
In Maths, place value has been consolidated which is the groundwork to support them further in other mathematical concepts.  Addition, subtraction and multiplication has been covered and we will continue to revisit them to help gain confidence and accuracy.
