Y6 CLiADw Fri-yay!

26 November 2021 (by Alex Downing (alex.downing))

That Fri-yay feeling was in the air today in Y6. We have worked non-stop and we are well and truly ready for some down time! In English lessons, we have been looking at the differences between formal and informal vocabulary. This has helped us to write a persuasive letter to the president of Brazil, urging him to take drastic action to limit the amount of deforestastion occuring in the Amazon Rainforest. In maths, we have been looking at converting between improper fractions and mixed numbers using counters and bar models to visualise the whole and fractional part of each number. In our RE lessons, we have started a new topic on Advent - a season of preparation - which begins on Monday. Staff and many parents joined us on Monday evening to create a bespoke wreath to count down the weeks leading up to Christmas Day (visit our gallery for pictures). Many thanks to those who attended the workshop. We raised £240 which will be used to subsidise the cost of the upcoming residential trip. Have a great weekend one and all!
