Good morning Year 6,
It’s Friday again! Let’s start off with some more fantastic rainbow art, this time from Jaya.
I’m really enjoying seeing all your artwork and creative projects – do keep the pictures coming in!
It has been a busy week in 6S as usual. We have been learning about latitude and longitude and labelling the different parts of the Earth:
And we completed some more draw-alongs with Rob Biddulph:
This week I also set the children a debating task. The children really rose to this challenge and have produced some fantastic work, demonstrating a mature ability to consider things from different viewpoints and use evidence to form their opinions. Unsurprisingly, a lot of children chose to consider the issue of whether children should return to school on the 1st of June, but we also had a range of other interesting discussion topics, including footballers’ salaries, use of plastic, reducing the voting age, animal testing and the all-important debate of which are better: cats or dogs?! This work isn’t due until tomorrow, but here is a taster of the children’s work so far:
For today’s Google Meet, as well as the usual end of week quiz, I thought we might have some votes on the issues the children have written about, so have your work ready if you would like to try to change anyone’s opinion about your topic!
Here are details of today’s assignments:
- English – Debating Lesson 2 (finishing work)
- Maths – Friday Challenge. This week’s White Rose Friday Challenge is a baking activity with an associated maths sheet that you might like to try OR you can make a poster about the different types of quadrilateral using the PowerPoint and poster on Google Classroom to help you.
- Topic – French – Days of the Week
- Google Meet – 1pm – Chat, quiz and debates (very informal, no pressure to talk, pets and snacks welcome, would be lovely to see you all there!)
Thank you all for another week of hard work.
Enjoy the weekend,
