Autumn Term 1 2021

Week commencing 6th September
 
We had a brilliant first week in St David's class. The class have shown me what REACH means to them and continue to grow into the Year 6 role. 
We have been beginning to explore our new topic - Planet Earth, in a variety of ways. 
In English we have considered non-chronological reports and created our own insect 'hexapods'.
In Maths we have been focused on place value up to 10,000,000 - we have compared, ordered and represented different numbers in different ways. The children have really impressed me with their determination to push themselves to get on to the deepen it activities. 
During REACH Friday the children considered themselves and how they perceive themselves through creating self portraits with natural resources. Next we thought about us a a team and a class, and played a selection of games - there was a lot of laughing! Finally, we started thinking about our 'Increasing Wildlife' project, and to begin we created maps of the school grounds. 
 
Week commencing 13th September
 
We have had a very busy second week and have produced some excellent work again.
In Maths, we have continued with our theme of place value and everyone is working hard to get on to the 'Deepen it' part of their worksheets. 
We had great fun learning our text map in English!
We enjoyed gardening and orienteering this week during our REACH sessions on Friday - the children found a whole host of wildlife and named many of them!
