YEAR 6 WEEKLY REVIEW
For week ending 14th January 2022
In Maths this week we have continued with our work on Fractions. We have begun looking at multiplying fractions by both whole and mixed numbers. We have used strategies for dividing fractions by a whole number and finding fractions of amounts. The children have worked brilliantly to use all of the different strategies and next week we will be solving sets of different question types, focusing on remembering when to apply which strategy.
In English this week we continued reading our new book: A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. We continued writing a description of his dream focusing on a range of writing techniques (for example adjectives in unusual places) as well as a range of grammatical devices. The writing produced by both classes has been absolutely stunning.
This week we continued with our topic of Health and Wellbeing. We looked at how to deal with any physical health concerns the children may be having and talked about who might be appropriate people to discuss any worries with. Next week, we start our new unit of learning and will begin by learning about some of the possible dangers of alcohol.
