A chocolate delight

This week has been another action packed week for Year 6.

On Thursday, we enjoyed our Mayan day. Here we became expert chocolate connoisseurs as we learnt how to eat chocolate “the real way”. We indulged our taste buds in chocolate all the way from Venezuela before having the opportunity to make some chocolate candies to take home. We hope you managed to try a few at home! We also made Mayan hot chocolate with one not-so-secret ingredient – chilli! We promise it wasn’t too spicy.

In Maths we have been continuing to develop our knowledge of fractions and have been working hard to identify common multiples and denominators. We will be building on this knowledge after half-term.

In Literacy we have brought together our writing skills and Science knowledge to write a fact page about the very talented William Harvey. In case you didn’t already know, he was the first person to identify the circulatory system and how the heart pumped blood around the body.

Hopefully the children have been singing our Mayan song we have been learning in Music as it has some really useful information about their history. This week we have moved onto identifying the chords of the song and how they are used repeatedly to form the basis of the tune.

Finally, in P.E. we have applied our knowledge of basketball to create some rather interesting games which we taught to the other children in the class.
