September Update

Year 6 have had a positive start to the year and have quickly settled into new routines and timetables.  In our topic, Revolution, we have been comparing Victorian school life to our experiences now. We're very glad we don't have the cane anymore or the dunce's cap!  Our linked text is Cogheart by Peter Bunzl.  We have used drama to explore characters and settings and this has helped us to develop our ideas for writing.  In Maths, we are revisiting place value and the 4 operations to secure our knowledge of when and how to use these methods.  In Science, we are learning about light and have carried out an investigation into reflection.  In Computing, we are learning how to keep ourselves safe online.
