Another busy week was completed for our hard-working Year 6 pupils.
In English, we looked at identifying different types of conjunctions – subordinating and coordinating – to help with our extended writing. We carried on reading our vehicle text (Rose Blanche), which ties in with our Topic of the Impacts of War. We worked on creating engaging expanded noun phrases as well as how the text of Rose Blanche affects the reader.
In Maths, we carried on with securing our knowledge of the four operations. The pupils have worked very hard on this topic by practicing their fluency in Maths as well as developing mental strategies to become more streamlined in their calculations.
In Science, we carried out an experiment to explore buoyancy. The pupils created comparative tests where they looked at the difference between an unpeeled and peeled orange and how that impacts its buoyancy. They then explored what may cause tinfoil to float when scrunched in air versus when scrunched in water.
Amethyst Class were very busy practicing their assembly based on the Christmas Truce. The pupils delivered a great performance on Friday and the video will be available this Monday. Thank you to all the families that helped the pupils prepare their lines and costumes. Moreover, well done to all the pupils of Amethyst Class for delivering a fantastic final assembly at St Joseph’s!
