Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome to year 6 from Mrs.Hitchen, Miss Coxall, Mrs.Newsome and Mrs.Cumisky.
We have been working extremely hard this term at ensuring our arithmetic skills are top notch. Children are becoming super confident at accurately answering questions - and checking their own and each others work. TT Rockstars scores are outstanding - keep it up everyone !!! Will you be next to receive a glow in the dark band?
We've been practising our sketching skills and just look at the wonderful results!
During literacy we have been looking closely at Pie Corbett's Zelda Claw and The Nightmare Man texts. These suspense texts have inspired us to write our own stories. We have been eager to discuss our own settings - ranging from a graveyard to an abandoned theme park- and have been working on adding suspense features, such as rhetorical questions, empty words, ellipsis, short sentences and creating a scary image in the readers mind.
Please find some examples of our work below. I do hope you will be as impressed as I was...
Class 6HN - please find your spellings for week commencing 26th November listed below.
Maths facts to learn
Area of parallelogram = base x height
1/4 turn = Right angle = 90 degrees
1/2 turn =Straight line = 180 degrees
3/4 turn = 270 degrees
Whole turn = Angle around a point = 360 degrees
360 - 90 = 270
360 - 180 = 180
360 - 10 = 350
360 - 20 = 340
360 - 30 = 330
