Years 5/6 Week 06 2015

Centrifugal force!
This week we have discovered that we have many budding authors in Y5/6 as they continue developing their skills as writers of suspense.

In Miss Kinsey’s Maths group, we have been looking at prime and composite numbers, finding factor pairs and identifying square numbers. We have explored how to find the square root of a number. 

In Miss Graham’s Maths group, children have been exploring seven digit numbers and practising rounding. Mrs Hood’s Maths group have been subtracting three digit numbers using the column method and beginning to use the ladder method to multiply.

In ICT the children have been learning about eSafety with Mr Winthorpe and watched a video produced by CEOPs (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) to drive home the message of keeping safe on the internet. They may talk about this at home with you. If you would like to watch the video, log on to www.thinkyouknow.co.uk  and search for Jigsaw.

In Art with Mr Fidler, children have produced some ornately designed sarcophagi each including a mini Egyptian fact book. They have been learning about farming in Egyptian times in their topic lesson and explored Tutankhamun’s tomb in Drama. 

This week was the last week for the Y6 swimmers. Miss Mead has been really impressed by the progress made by all groups – well done!

Please could we remind children that PE kits need to be in school from Monday to Friday and children need to bring in tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirts as PE will still take place outside on milder days.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend,

Miss Graham & Mrs Creighton
