Welcome to the Wonderful Year 6 Webpage


This half term’s learning journey is:

Travelling Through the 20th Century!

Week Ending: 15.09.17

In English:
This week, we have been looking at Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. We began the week by recapping prepositions and Expanded Noun Phrases. We then moved onto the different word classes, such as nouns, verbs, adverbs, and so on, After this, we also looked at possessive apostrophes. We ended the week by looking at the different tenses. Next week, we will be working on narrative structure.

In Maths:
This week, 
we looked at converting measures. This relied heavily on their Place Value knowledge, specifically being able to divide by 10, 100 and 1000. The children covered length, mass and capacity. Next week, addition and subtraction.

Also this week: We took part in science and history lessons. The children investigated how voltage affects the performance of circuitry components, and in history, the children began their historical research projects.
