MATHS
During maths this week, we have been calculating fractions mentally and we have also been applying our knowledge of fractions to problem solving situations particularly when presented in different ways. We have also been using bar models to help us and support us with our answers; it has also helped us to improve our reasoning skills. We are looking forward to beginning a new subject next week.

ART
Linking to Remembrance Day, we were also drawing poppies following a guided video. We first sketched out our poppies in our art sketchbooks, then experimented types of reds to see which ones we preferred. After, we drew our final pieces on thick paper, and traced over it with a sharpie (a black permanent pen) then coloured them in and cut them out. We used all of our poppies to make a war display.

Diwali
On Wednesday, it was diwali; as a result we learnt some more about diwali and why it is celebrated. We learnt about how people celebrate diwali and what types of food they ate. We made some Indian sweets called Barfi. We started by adding pink food colouring to coconut then mixed in condensed milk to make the mixture stick.

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.
