In science this week, year 6 have been learning about and creating their own micro-organisms which had the children gripped -whether this was due to the mind blowing learning or because their own micro-organisms were made out of biscuits and strawberry laces! The children are becoming more confident at naming the different types and the similarities and differences between them.
Throughout the week, all the children have worked incredibly hard to plan and compose persuasive letters around climate change and the impact this has on our plant and future generations. This has been a great way for the children to write with passion with the added bonus of gaining new, or expand previous knowledge on how climate change has a huge impact on our Earth. We have been discussing how little changes can help if we work together. Please look out for letters created by the children's bags! This links in with our learning for next week which is all things recycling as it's National Recycling Week.
Year 6 have had the pleasure of planning and perfecting their house captain speeches which were presented Friday afternoon; results will be announced on Monday, so we all look forward to finding out who our house vice/captains will be for the new school year. This is always a very big part of year 6 and all that have participated should be very proud of themselves.
In maths this week we have been looking at place value charts which has lead to some very large numbers being created. We have been learning how to say and spell these large numbers correctly and understand how they become bigger as they move through the place value chart.
Year 5 had their first, long-awaited forest school session and by the excitement they brought back to class, I think it is safe to say they had a very enjoyable and memorable time and am sure the joy they had will continue in the weeks to come.
Next week we will be focusing on recycling and continue learning about Greta's views on climate change by digging deeper into her book.
I will send a class email to everyone once we have taken delivery of homework books.
Have a brilliant week!
