It's been a busy few weeks for 5/6JE since half term and the children are learning so much.
In English, we have covered:
* Persuasive writing
* Non chronological reports
On top of this, we are working hard to use:
*Expanded noun phrases
*Commas between clauses
* Colons and semi colons in lists
*Active and passive voice.
In maths we have covered:
*Adding and subtracting fractions
*Finding fractions of amounts
*Multiplying and dividing using the formal method.
We have also spent the month of November completing "Barvember". Every morning we have been solving reasoning problems using bar model.
In Topic, we have continued around the world and are visiting Mexico, Australia and New York! This has involved eating Mexican food, recreating the Sydney Opera House and soon we'll be making our very own Macey's Christmas window display.
The end of this term is always busy with Xmas show rehearsals, the children are already working hard to make this a success and we can't wait for you to see it!
Can you please ensure that your child has their outdoor PE kit in school all week. This will ensure that if we miss a session due to rehearsals, we can reschedule it easily.
Music with Adam
Over the last 6 weeks, we've been learning to perform "Don't stop believing". The children have created movements, composed their own musical parts and played the ukulele alongside the original. We've had a blast, thanks Adam
