Weekly update

Year 6 children have been drafting letters from the perspective of an evacuated child, inspired by our class novel, 'Friend or Foe.' As well as considering specific features to include in their writing, children have been developing their skills at redrafting to further improve the impact of their language and grammatical choices. 

In Maths, children have been developing knowledge of all four operations. There have been a number of particularly tricky problems faced by the children that have required high levels of perseverance. 

For history, the children compared their diets with those of people living through World War Two.
