Year 6 have started the new year fantastically! In the first week, we shared our knowledge of the class author with Year 5 and we learnt about David Walliams. It was interesting to compare the two authors because they both made up words in their writing.
In Maths, we have been learning about algebra. The children enjoyed it more than they thought they would and have made fantastic progress -well done! We have also started our new class text: Goodnight Mister Tom. We can't wait to find out what happens to the evacuee, Willie. It is related to our topic, World War II. The children have really engaged with the topic so far. We will be using our historian skills to find out more about the people who lived during the war.
The children have been bringing their reading records in daily; please keep up reading with your child at home as it really does support their learning.
