Year 6 - Shakespeare

Welcome to Shakespeare Class. We are a very hard working group of Year 3 children, consisting of 9 girls and 17 boys!

We always work hard in our class to be the best that we can possibly be. We are very proud of our books and our classroom because they both highlight the learning journey that we are currently travelling on at the moment!

 

Mr Perks is our class teacher. Mrs Kowolik is our Teaching Assistant. Miss Wright helps us on Monday's and Wednesday's.

Our topic at the moment is called 'Fun at the Fairground'. We have been quite excited about this topic and have done lots of talking about the fairgrounds we have visited and sharing our experiences of them.

In History, we have been looking at what fairgrounds were like in the past and we have compared them to modern day fairgrounds. We were very fascinated by how many differences there actually were. Our History challenge was to write a detailed comparison of traditional and modern fairgrounds.

In English we have been reading the book, 'The Hodgeheg' by Dick King Smith. We have done lots of exciting work based around this including; comprehension activities, character descriptions and diary entries. We like to use ICT in English to support our learning.

To help us to write as good as possible, we often do editing tasks in English. This helps us to understand what good sentences look like. We have also been very busy making adverbs by using root words and suffixes.

We have also been doing a lot of work other grammar in English this year. We have been really trying to use the technical terms for different types of words like; synonyms, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, prepositions.

In Science we are exploring Forces and next week we will be investigating how objects move on different surfaces!

This week we explored pushes, pulls and twists and we concluded that the harder a force is, the further and quicker an object will travel.

 

RE is a very important lesson to us in our class because it allows us to learn about other people and their beliefs. RE lessons for us are always very calm, quiet and peaceful because this helps us to think carefully about the religious knowledge we have gained and ask critical questions. The candles and peaceful music helps us to reflect carefully and consider how our learning about religion impacts on us and our own lives.

In RE this week we have been exploring and learning about the 5 K's in Sikhism. We talked about what each one was and what each one represented and symbolised. We had lots of fun doing this. We even had the chance to explore and handle some real Sikh artefacts........

We have some very thirsty mathematicians in our class! So far this term we have done some number work, addition, subtraction, multiplication, fractions, right angles, shapes, problem solving and measures. As you can see, we have been extremely busy travelling on our learning journey in Maths!

 

A certain someone was an absolute super star this week because they confidently counted in 4's all on their own (and in front of the whole class)! Mr Perks was very proud of them. I wonder who it was?

Mr Perks also congratulated lots of children this week on their presentation in their Maths books. Well done Shakespeare!

More recently in Maths, we have been exploring number. We have been deepening our knowledge and understanding of place value by working with thousands, hundreds, tens and units and explaining the values of each of the digits. Some of us used ICT to support our learning on this where we had to make numbers on the computer. Some of us worked with place value cards to help us to make numbers.

We have also been learning to tell the time in Maths too. One of our challenges was to sort different activities in terms of their duration. The challenge didn't stop there because once we had done this, we had to use our estimation skills to estimate the duration of each activity.

A very exciting part of our curriculum at the moment is Music because we are learning how to play the drums. We have played some very interesting tunes (and made lots of noise!)
