We will remember

This week has been a week to remember!
In Willow Class, we led the whole school in a special Remembrance assembly. We shared why a poppy is worn on Armistice Day and talked about who we remember and say a silent ‘thank you’ to.
In English, we read and reviewed the book ‘Where the poppies now grow’ by Hilary Robinson & Martin Impey.  Here are some extracts from our reviews of the book:
 …incredibly moving story which has a lyrical quality…  
…the exquisit illustrations add a softness to the text…
…the story tells of the horrors of war but also shows the power of everlasting friendship…

 

In maths, we remembered our learning about squared and cubed numbers and used rapid recall of multiplication facts as we tackled some fun calculations using BIDMAS. Calculations with brackets and more than one operation aren’t so scary anymore!

We began a new topic in Computing this week: Coding. We explored what makes a good game and had lots of fun playing Crossy Road!

In honour of our fallen heroes, this week’s Yoga poses included a hero or two and beautiful peaceful dragonflies. We are becoming more confident with each week.

In Science this week, it was time to test our knowledge by completing an ‘Escape Room’ style challenge. By using our previous learning, we were able to solve the problems, crack the codes and break free from the ‘operating room’! Well done, super scientists!

We look forward to seeing some of you at the Remembrance service in Little Hadham this Sunday.

Have a lovely weekend, Year 6.
