Class News – Aut 1 wk 4 – 29.9.23

As we complete our first month in Y6, it’s very clear that the children have settled back into school life brilliantly! Most children are arriving on time every day and showing that they are becoming independent and responsible learners.

This week we have been continuing our Topic of Fallen Fields and focussing in World War Two. As part of our History work, we have been looking closely at how the Nazi party (and Hitler) came to power in Germany, and the events which took place to initiate alliances and thus begin the second major conflict involving Britain in one lifetime.

In English, we have continued to look more closely at the life and impact of Wilfred Owen and his war poetry. Whilst writing our biographies, we have learned all about his upbringing, early life, time in the army, tragic death and legacy. If you’d like to listen to some of his poems, you could watch these videos

Dulce et Decorum Est Futility

As part of Maths we have been focussing on multiplications and the written method for calculating them (especially 4 digit multiplied by 2 digit). We have worked really hard, but would definitely benefit from a little more practice on T T ROCKSTARS, to help with fluency and remembering facts quickly. If you’d like to know more about the methods, why not watch this video to show you how to complete them.

In PE, we have worked on both Football and Dance this week. Focussing on passing, turns and striking the ball in different ways (depending on what we are trying to do). In Dance we have looked at interpreting some common activities from wartime into a self-choregraphed dance as part of a group.

Our Science work this week, involved us calculating our resting heart rate, by taking our pulse and then measuring it over time after participating in exercise. Although a couple of us found it difficult to find our pulse (which was worrying) we were all able to note how it changed over a short period of time. We’ll be analysing the data more closely in the next lesson, graphing the results and drawing conclusions about what we found.
