Weekly Update

In Year Six this week, we have continued with our new unit of learning that's inspired by Trish Cooke's 'Tales from the Caribbean.' Having familiarised with the features of non-chronological reports, we have developed our knowledge of grammatical terms, ready for when we create our own reports about a Caribbean country. So that we are well informed about our countries, we have performed internet searches to gather information and have started to sort this into specific sections. 

For maths, we have used our mental and written methods to calculate with decimals. Explaining our methods and sharing ideas has helped to secure our understanding.
