Years 5/6 Week 06 2015

The Science of Light 
The children have been having lots of fun this week learning about the Ancient Egyptians. On Friday, the children made their own pyramids out of card and scarab beetles out of clay.

In Music this week the children have been learning to play challenging musical rhythms. Mr Reeves was impressed with how much the children had improved since last week; thank you for encouraging your child to practise at home.

The standard of writing in Literacy has been fantastic with some truly terrifying stories in the making! 

Aerobics - dance move teaching
In Maths this week, Miss Kinsey’s class have been investigating triangles. Mrs Hood’s group have been multiplying 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers. 

Miss Graham’s class have been multiplying fractions and multiplying 1-digit numbers with numbers with 2-decimal places.

We hope that the Y6 children who were out on Friday skiing had an enjoyable day, in preparation for their upcoming ski trip.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend,

Mrs Hood & Mrs Goddard
Miss Graham & Mrs Creighton
