Masks, Modal Verbs and Modroc!

Another jam-packed week has flown by in Year 6.  In English, we have combined our studies in PSHE to learn more about harmful substances and their effects on the body. We have explored different grammatical terms, for example modal verbs and have generated a series of high-quality sentences that we will be able to use next week when creating an informative leaflet. On Friday, the children had the opportunity to create a labelled diagram and we discussed the nature of these in order to fulfil their intended purpose.

In Art this week, we have started painting our modroc hand sculptures and will add finishing touches next week in time for an exhibition.

We have been blown away with the quality of the Mayan masks which the children made for homework – they are incredible!

A quick reminder about the importance of playing TTRockstars regularly to practise times table knowledge. The game allows pupils to learn their times tables all the way up to the 19 times tables as well as multiples of 10 up to 120.  This week, we are in a battle with Year 3!

A huge well done to all the children taking part in Bikeability this week.  The instructors have been very impressed with the children and how well they listened and following instructions.  Certificates and badges to follow in due course.

Have a great weekend!
