Week beginning Monday 19th February
We began our new topic or Britain at War in history this week. The children have brought a wealth of prior knowledge to this topic and it was wonderful hearing them so enthusiastic to share this in class. They created a table of everything that they knew and everything that they wanted to find out, either during the topic or through their own independent research. For our second lesson this week, we looked at previous wars throughout history to give some context before we being WW1 and WW2. In groups, we researched a famous war from British history to share with the class.
In science, we programmed microbits - small computers that can do an array of tasks. The children have used Scratch many times so they were more than up to the task of creating algorithms. They were then challenged to add in repeats to make their algorithm more effective. They then compared and contrasted between the coding programs that they have learned to use to find out similarities and differences.
We hope you all have a wonderful, restful half term.
Mr Lucas and Miss Osborne.
Home learning and spellings will be set each week on a Thursday and will be due in the following Tuesday.

In Year 6, the children are in different spelling groups. If your child is unsure who their spelling teacher is, please ask. Please practise your spelling words as part of your home learning. Our spelling test will be on a Wednesday.
In addition, please find some information to support your child at home with their spellings: https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/english/primary-spelling/
Also attached is the 100 most common words that your child is expected to know by the end of Year 6 (please see below).
Children should be reading every night at home. This should be recorded on Boom Reader at least once a week by a parent or carer. Instructions on how to log on to Boom Reader have been sent home in your child's bag. Boom Reader can also be downloaded as an app. Please ask if you have any questions.
Please note: pupil login details have changed slightly due to an upgrade that has taken place on the Accelerated Reader platform. Pupil login details (user name and password) should now be enter in all lower case (no capital letters at all). These login details are used each time your child quizzes a school reading book which carries an accelerated reading quiz code.
