A huge well done to all Team LG for their hard work this week in Maths and Literacy. Throughout our lessons, we have worked with Mrs Longden and had a look at some previous Y6 SATs papers. We have been able to have a look at the types of questions that are on test papers and we have even had a go at answering them. This is all good practice and preparation for next year. Both Mrs Longden and myself have been AMAZED by your results and how clever you all are. Well done Team LG on producing some cracking results!!
I would like a to say how proud I am of each and everyone of you for your commitment to learning through what has been a very funny week. Even though I have been in and out of class, supporting with the Year 6 SATs, you have all remained engaged in your learning regardless of the changes to our timetable.
As part of our lessons this week we have started to look at understanding angles as a measurement of turn. We began used a diagram to create a 'map', similar to a compass and used this to direct our partners to particular places around the classroom and around the hall. We had to give our partner instructions using degree turns as well as instructing them to turn clockwise or anti-clockwise.
We have spent time publishing our pieces of descriptive writing, in preparation of them being sent to Mrs Lawson. Each of our 'I'm a Teacher Get Me Out of Here' team leaders has chosen one member of their team to present their work to Mrs Lawson. Next week we will find out who our winner is. In addition, we have continued to work on our reading comprehension skills, in particular finding evidence to support our answers.
In addition to Maths and Literacy, topic, science, PE and all other areas of the curriculum, this week we began rehearsals for our end of year production - Park Street's Got Talent. Amongst the giggles, it has been lovely to see Team LG getting into character and already showing 100% commitment to the show. I would like to say a special thank you to those children who have been dedicated to rehearsing after school. Your passion for drama and performance does not go unnoticed.
Continuing with the same objectives as last week, this week we revisited calculating both the perimeter and area of rectilinear shapes that have missing measurements. Moving on, we were given a question such as 'The area of a rectilinear shape is 48cm squared. What does the shape look like'. We had to use our knowledge of area to draw all the different ways the shape could look. Some of us even managed to have a look at compound shapes.
Our next writing focus is descriptive writing and to build up to writing our own piece this week we have focused on analysing the features of descriptive language. This included: strong adjectives, use of SPAMO, use of senses, interesting verbs and a range of punctuation. We then began further research on our habitats to build up word banks and mind maps to support us with our writing.
