Weekly Update: Year 6
We've had a fabulous week this week - the highlight of which was our productive and action-packed day in Porthcurno! There are some photos below.
After a very long journey, which was made longer by the crazy traffic, we finally arrived at the Telegraph Museum in Porthcurno. We split into our class groups and then had a good look around the museum (including the fascinating bunker) and took part in an electricity workshop which complements our learning in science. After we had eaten lunch in the park, we made our way up to the Minack theatre, where everyone enjoyed the excellent production of 'The Thirty Nine Steps'. During the interval, the children were delighted to be treated to ice cream!. After that, we made our way to Treen and the fabulous Logan Rock Inn, where we enjoyed our fish & chips or pasta before jumping back on the coach for a (thankfully) shorter journey home! There were some tired children and teachers in school on Friday!
In maths, we have been focusing on place value, including ordering and rounding numbers up to ten million. In English, we have been basing some writing on the classic Michelle Magorian book - Goodnight Mister Tom. We are writing diaries as the main character: 'Willie Beech'.
This week was also the first of our ten ukulele sessions with Mrs Man and the children learnt their first chord (C) and their first songs (Animal Fair; Row, Row, Row Your Boat & R2D2). If you haven't already made a donation, it's still possible through the School Gateway App.
Finally, on Friday, we had a short sessions in the forest School, where we had a small fire and sang a couple of songs - all together!
Homework: Normally, we will expect them to do the following and hand it in the following Friday:
If you have any technical issues with TTRS, please do it the old fashioned way - write out times tables on paper or ask yuor teacher for a times table grid!
