Welcome to Year 6 and Team Topaz

 

Your teacher is Ms Ellis

Your teaching assistants are Mrs Sides and Mrs Pullen 

 

 

This week in maths we were looking at how to calculate the area of rectangles, triangles and parallelograms as well calculating volumes of cubes and cuboids. In English we wrote explanations of gadgets that we would take into the rainforest to help us survive.

Next week in maths we will be looking at solving algebra problems and in English we will be looking at the features of autobiographical stories and begin to write our own.
