Welcome to Year 6 and Team Topaz!
Your Classteacher is Mrs Boulder.

Well done to everyone in Team Topaz for another great week!
We have been very busy in Maths this week learning methods for calculating with negative numbers and how to round numbers to ten millions and down to thousandths.
In English, we have been learning how to create drama and tension in our writing and planning the story we will be writing next week!
We have also been learning about how shadows are created, more about World War 2 and thinking about how to create backgrounds for our London art work.
Next week in Maths, we are learning strategies for multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 and how to convert between metric measures. In English we will be writing our own stories about finding a creature and helping it to escape!

This week’s Home Learning:
This week we would like your to answer some questions on negative numbers, following on from our work in class. There is a sheet of questions for you to complete in your home learning book.
Remember that you need to read 5 times per week as part of your home learning and 7 times per week to complete the reading challenge.
Remember to keep rocking on Times Table Rock Stars - this week's league table is in the newsletter.
This week’s Termly Topic Home Learning Project:
Research Word War 2
You might like to think about:
Why World War 2 started?
When the war started and finished
Which countries were involved
Who the main leaders were
How people protected themselves
How the British people were affected
Present your research in any way you choose, for example a PowerPoint, a poster, a report, a model.
We look forward to seeing any completed work before the Christmas holiday.
