Welcome to 6D's blog
What a busy start to year 6 we've had!
We have been reading 'Eye of the Wolf' in our English lessons. The children have been using this as a stimulus to produce some excellent pieces of writing. We have been focusing on using descriptive techniques (e.g. similes, metaphors, personification) to engage the reader.
In science we have been studying Carl Linnaeus' classification system. We have been looking specifically at the animal kingdom and the different types of vertebrates (e.g. birds, mammals) and invertebrates (e.g. molluscs, arthropods). This week the children explored the school grounds, looking for invertebrates. Once back in the classroom, we decided which group they belonged to based on their characteristics. Can you identify any of the animals in the pictures and classify them?
This week in maths the children have been investigating multiples, factors, prime numbers, square numbers and square roots. They then attempted to make a 'loop game' using this terminology.
