Welcome to Year 6 and Team Topaz!
Your Classteacher is Mrs Boulder.
Your teaching assistant is Mrs Sides.
What a strange and unusual week it has been in Team Topaz this week and we have certainly missed seeing you all in school.
In Maths, we have been looking at perimeter and area and have learnt how to calculate the area of various 2D shapes, including rectangles, triangles and parallelograms. In addition, we have also revisited some key strategies for the arithmetic test and recorded them on our revision strategy sheets.
In English, we have written some exciting adventure stories all about being stranded in the Rainforest!
Across the curriculum, we have explored what good learners look like and learnt about the concept of the 'learning pit' which shows the various stages of learning. In Science, we have learned the terms 'vertebrates' and 'invertebrates' and explored examples of the animals belonging to each group and their features. We have created some cool posters and leaflets to show our knowledge. For RE, we have thought about the Buddha's reflections on suffering and considered how we ourselves can help those who are suffering with various problems. In Geography, we have explored the various layers of the rainforest and looked at the animals to be found in each layer.
Next week in Maths, we will be learning how to interpret data which has been presented in line charts and pie charts.
English next week will link to our Science and Geography topics: we will be creating an organism of our own and writing a report about it!
We will also be continuing with all our other curriculum topics.
Have a lovely weekend, take care of yourselves and we look forward to seeing you all very soon!
