Michael Morpugo Class (Year 6)

This term, our topic has been Japan. In Destination Reader and Writing sessions, we have been studying the book Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We have produced a setting description and have created fact files on the animals that represent the different nations that make up our school. We have also completed lots of Big Picture comprehension activities checking our understanding of the book. In Maths, we have focused on fractions and have made great progress in simplifying, finding equivalences and multiplying and dividing fractions including mixed numbers. In Science, we have used the class Ipads to
research the classification of animals and create our own information poster on the Orang-Utan.We have also worked extremely hard with our SATS boosters after school! Next term, our topic will be Ancient Greece. We will study the legend of Odysseus and write our own mythical adventure story. In maths we will focus on measure, ratio and proportion before tackling algebra. In topic we will research the Ancient Olympics and make and sample our own Greek food using fresh ingredients.
