A very different week ahead for the whole of year six.The majority will be exploring France, but fifteen year sixes will be going on some exciting adventures here in Northampton. The famous fifteen, 13 children and 2 adults, will keep you posted here on the blog.
Amuse toi bein!
DAY 1 – The Pinnacle Centre
Partitioning Numbers Appropriately – Great to see larger numbers broken up.
Hit The Button – Great for times tables and doubling and halving decimals too.
Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? – Progressive place value looking at the value of every digit.
Key Skills club for Year Five and Six is now up and running!
Every Tuesday at lunchtime Mrs Chisholm will host a Key Skills club for those children who would prefer to do their work in school rather than at home.
A great opportunity for you to organise yourself; we understand some of you may not have a lot of time at home to complete key skills or have access to the resources needed.
Today we are looking at how to order specific things in French!
This link will give you lots of vocabulary for what to order and also how to order it.
It would be great if you could have a look at home to further develop your understanding!
Who out of Winston Churchill and Nelson Mandela had the biggest impact on the world today and why?
Our recent home learning has all been about Nelson Mandela.
All of you have discovered different information on him and it’s very interesting.
The other class has researched another interesting leader, Winston Churchill. As he also led an inspirational life, we think it would be important for you to learn all about him too.
Can you find any similarities between Churchill and Mandela? Any major differences? Is there anything about Churchill that you find interesting?
In numeracy today I asked the question: “why do you think I loved that lesson?” Every pupil in the room new precisely why!
The level of resilience, determination and enthusiasm from all was fantastic.
A big thank you to Mandela class for kicking the year off in fantastic style.
If you want to continue the investigation, complete it and maybe challenge yourself further, there is an online version of it here:
The Frog Puzzle
A very good morning so far up in Year 6… Looking forward to this year even more!
We said at the beginning of Year Six in 2014 that at the end of Year Six (confusing) we would blog and communicate about how Year Seven is going! It would be great to hear how well you have all settled in.
It would be a great place to maybe even hear advice from fellow Year Sevens from different schools!
Best of luck to all of you; you will most definitely settle in well and smash it!
Mr Prosser & Mrs Chisholm
