Science
This week we have been busy investigating series and parallel circuits and learning the definitions for current and voltage. Lots of us were able to construct a parallel circuit and Molly and Jessica took theirs to show Ms. Renshaw. Matthew provided a fantastic explanation of the differences between the two circuits.  

PE 
In PE we have continued our unit of work on tag rugby. One activity that we tried was ‘Stuck in the mud.’ The defenders had to take someone’s tag, when they did so that person had to stop still until someone freed them. 
“PE was fun!” explained Athena. “We really enjoyed it!” 

Maths 
In maths, we have been rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. We have also looked at negative numbers in context and carried out calculations with negative numbers. Column addition and subtraction were the two operations that we have revised.  
“I have enjoyed working on column subtraction and carrying numbers” quoted Sapphire. 

English 
In English we planned our myth that has been inspired by ancient Greece; our books are full of great language and imaginative ideas. We have also begun to write our first drafts. 

ART 
In art, we made up our own mythical creatures with different parts of different animals. 
“Art was great fun and we got to be creative.” said Aniya.

How you can help!

Year 6 are given weekly homework that is set on a Friday and handed back in for marking on the following Thursday. This consists of an English activity and a Maths activity. The children are also given weekly spellings to learn, which are tested on a Monday.

Home Learning

Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read widely and frequently. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis.  
Ensuring that your child is fluent with their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practiced; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
