Y6 JHa & MHe - Out with the old, in with the older

2 October 2020 (by Mark Hemsley (mark.hemsley))

This week, we finished our history topic on slavery. The children across Y6 produced some wonderful pieces of writing in the form of diary entries written by fictional African slaves at the end of the 18th century. They were well thought out, detailed and emotional - well done!

This means we can (and have) start our main English topic: Robin Hood. Said to have been terrorising rich people in Nottinghamshire around the 11th century, we're stepping even further back in time for this topic.

Elsewhere, we have made great strides of progress in maths recently. Multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, cubes and squares all in the space of one week! Absolute scenes in the mornings for Y6.

Art lessons have featured fab progress on the children's sculpture topic for this term - clay and plaster next week so get the vanish ready to go.

No F1 this week, but we recommend the highlights of the Tuscan Grand Prix from a couple of weeks ago - high drama indeed.

Have a lovely weekend.

Mr Hemsley and Mr Hamill
