Estimation

Hi everyone,

Try out this maths game to help improve your estimation skills.
Remember, estimating is not meant to be absolutely accurate, we are making a good guess. We can use our rounding skills to estimate answers to calculations to give us a good idea of what the answer will be. Don’t be afraid to estimate- the more you do it- the more accurate you will become.

Have fun :-)

World Book Day

Well done everyone for dressing up for our Shakespeare themed World Book Day. You made a fantastic effort and you all looked amazing. We are very impressed with you analysis of Shakespeare’s work. We hope you are inspired to read more of Shakespeare’s work!

Farewell fair maidens and sires.

Maths next week…

Next week in maths we will be improving our knowledge of adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators. Remember, to do this we must first convert them to the same denominator by finding the lowest common denominator. Look at the explanation below then have a go for yourselves. Then try adding or subtracting fractions with mixed numbers….

Have fun

Y6 team :-)

Add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions.

Maths Week 3

Getting ahead in Maths!

Hi Y6

Next week in maths we will be looking at reflection and translation in the 4 quadrants.
Can you remember how to read co-ordinates? ‘Along the corridor and up the stairs’ we plot the horizontal axis first then the vertical axis and the coordinate is where the two meet.

The point in the centre of the 4 quadrants is (0,0) and this is called ‘the origin’ The left horizontal axis and the bottom vertical axis contain the negative numbers.
Translation means to move the shape from one position to another without changing its size or position.
Reflection means to ‘flip’ the shape over along either the vertical or horizontal axis.

Click on the link below to play a game involving coordinates. Make sure you click the green Full Screen box to play it full size.

Christmas Party Day!!

 

We had a rocking Christmas party.

Great games; manequin challenge at the disco and then finished with a little cleaning after the party food. :)

Creating a character

Hi Year 6,

This week we have been looking at creating interesting character descriptions based on our book Skulduggery Pleasant.

My task, for you, is: using all the techniques you have learnt so far, can you use your amazing imagination and write a character description which shows everyone how much of an amazing author you are?

I’m looking forward to reading your ideas

Mr Thompson :)

Boreatton Park

Year 6 had an amazing time at Boreatton Park!

What a super adventure week we had at Boreatton Park. The children and the teachers had a great time, testing their fear of heights on the high ropes and abseiling; and creating a fantastic team building spirit, with the problem solving and team work games.
