Time flies when you’re having fun!

Wow! Our posture and core strength really have developed over the term. In Yoga this week, we enjoyed celebrating just how much we have improved. We have grown in confidence, too! Such wonderful demonstrations from Year 6 this week. We did also make time for some fun by playing a game with the poses we have learnt. What a perfect way to begin our final week of the term!

This week we got practical in Maths as we explored volume. We created different shapes with the same volume and talked about what was the same and what was different each time. Our practical exploration helped us to understand the formula used for finding the volume of cuboids.

In English, we looked at the persuasive features of travel texts. We used the acronym ‘A FOREST’ to help us remember some of the techniques used to help persuade the reader. ‘A FOREST’ stands for: Alliteration, Facts, Opinions, Rhetorical Questions, Emotive Language, Statistics and finally Three (the power of 3!). Using Iceland as our destination, we worked together to rehearse these persuasive features in preparation for some extended writing.

In RE, we have been learning about the Easter story and creating a timeline. In groups, we discussed what questions we would like to ask Jesus or God about the events of Holy Week.

We continue to explore ways of staying safe online whilst enjoying the many benefits of the internet. In Computing, we discussed the choices we have before posting things online.

Ever wondered what it looks like when you experience huge relief and realise your teachers have just played the best April Fool’s Day joke? Don’t worry , Year 6 – it really was an April Fool. We just couldn’t resist!

 

We loved sharing and celebrating our work from this term at this week’s Parent Consultations. We have much to be proud of!

Willow Class wish you all a very happy Easter break!
