Our learning


In English, we have continued to look at King Kong. We have looked at what makes a good newspaper report and started planning our own report based on the events in King Kong. Next week, we will write our own reports.


In maths, we have looked at ordering, adding and subtracting negative numbers. We have also looked at calculating temperature differences. We have continued to work on our Big Maths activities too.


In topic, we drew portraits of Sir Francis Drake and compared them to other portraits drawn of him. We made our own compasses and looked the uses of magnets.


In ICT, we started to look at databases. Here is the link to the database we searched.  


Have a lovely weekend.

Friday 25th September 2020


It has been so lovely welcoming year 6 back. We have had a fantastic few weeks settling in and learning new routines. Thank you year 6 for making me feel so welcome and helping me settle in too.


Our learning


In English, we have been busy writing diaries based on the video clip 'The Lighthouse.' We have also started reading King Kong and thinking about the part where King Kong escapes in readiness to write and produce a news report.




In maths, we have recapped reading and writing numbers as well as comparing numbers using the greater than and less than signs. We have also developed our mental and written addition and subtraction skills.


Our topic this term is Explorers. We started the topic by saying what we knew about the topic already and writing questions that we would like to find out.  So far, we have researched famous explorers and found out about the Age of Exploration. We have created wanted posters for new explorers during this time and worked collaboratively using google slides to research life on board a Tudor explorer ships.


If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at school.


Many thanks


Miss Evans
