A big well done to everyone in Class 6 for completing their SATs this week. Over the last few weeks, they have all worked really hard in lessons and booster sessions to ensure they did the best they could. We are all very proud of you.
This week, Year 6 have been researching and writing their own balanced arguments about graffiti and discussing the question: is it street art or vandalism?
We began by researching around the topic before investigating points for and against our argument. We then supported these points with evidence and quotes to help inform the reader. We will be typing these up soon so stay posted for examples here!
This week in Year 6, we worked in pairs and small groups to write tourist guides for interesting areas on Ordinance Survey maps. We used the key and our knowledge of map symbols and grid references help us give directions to interesting places.
This week, we have been enjoying Book Week at Cathedral School. Our focus has been settings and so in Y6, we have been reading The Hobbit and enjoying all the wonderful setting descriptions throughout the book. We wrote our own setting descriptions based on Bilbo’s house and The Shire before we move onto the Misty Mountains.
We also enjoyed a variety of other activities including buddy reading, dressing up and sharing stories.
This week, we have been revising our knowledge of working out the area and perimeter of shapes. To help with this, we went out and calculated the area and perimeter of the KS2 playground using trundle wheels.
It’s that time of year again! Please can you post three maths topics you would like to revise in lessons or booster sessions. If there is something specific then please say so. (E.g. Addition with decimals rather than just ‘addition’, or multiplying fractions by whole numbers rather than just ‘fractions’).
This week, we have not only been learning about e-safety, but we have also been learning about how to stay safe on the roads and on public transport thanks to our trip to the Old Kent Road fire station to participate in the Junior Citizenship Scheme organised by Southwark.
We learnt lots about staying safe which will help as we become more independent and transition into secondary school.
