Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to Year 6 and Team Turquoise!

 Your Classteachers are Mrs Vipond and Miss Foster.

Your teaching assistant is Mrs Pullen.


Well done to everyone in Team Turquoise 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!

Remember to keep rocking on Times Table Rock Stars - this week's league table is on the newsletter!


This week’s Termly Topic Home Learning Project:

You might like to think about:

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.
