Wow!! What a fantastic start to Year 6! The children have settled in beautifully and are showing more and more independence, resilience and determination each day.
We kicked the year off with our project ‘We Are Illustrators’. This involved practising, editing and redrafting pieces of art work relying only on a pencil. Smudging and cross hatching were just two of the techniques we became experts on. The project was closely linked to the intriguing book we have studied in our English lessons, once again using our drafting and redrafting to not only write amazing diary entries, but descriptions AND poems too!
Maths lessons have also been particularly successful, focused mainly on number and place value. In addition, the children have enjoyed the first half term of finance Fridays, thinking about the difference between our ‘wants’ and ‘needs’ and using this to budget.
