THIS WEEK'S LEARNING
To Year 6
We are the 'Web Warriors'.
This term, Y6 are about to start a pupil-led topic using the statement ‘Overground/Underground’. For homework they had to write questions to find out in class about 'overground and underground' e.g. What created the universe?, or overground or what made people start mining?, or how does a submarine actually work? , for underground.
These questions will form some of our lessons or mini topics this term. During this work in class we will go on the Chromebooks to help find out the answer to some of the questions.
This week, we have been creating estate agent 'web pages' to sell the cottage in Carrie's War as part of our DCF work. We linked it to our maths, working out the areas of the rooms for the floorplan to go on the advert.
Our peer question was to look at pollution in the sea. We talked about ships sinking in WW2 and wondered if they would sink differently in different liquids.
From The Web Warriors.
This week( to be completed by Wed 30th Jan) - on the Google Classroom, there is one activity to complete - looking at the 'mathsisfun' website and investigating 2D shapes. They will then need to add facts to the table about triangles and quadrilaterals.
