Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to Year 6 and Team Topaz


Your new teacher is Ms Ellis

Your new teaching assistants are Mrs Sides and Mrs Pullen 



A warm welcome back to everyone after what was hopefully a restful, enjoyable half term break.


This week in maths we have been learning about proportion and linking this to everyday-life recipe problems which needs to be either scaled up or down. In English we explored the language used in persuasive adverts and letters and designed some adverts of our own. In science this week we began our new topic on Electricity and researched some interesting facts.

Next week in maths we will be learning about ratio and use bar models to help us solve problems. In English we will be writing our own persuasive letters, linked to the adverts created this week.
