Taking Control!

In our science lessons on Electricity, we have investigated a range of circuits,using bulbs, buzzers, motors and switches. This week, we made a clown’s face complete with a flashing red nose and a spinning bow tie. We loved it!

We have enjoyed our science making circuits with light bulbs,buzzers and motors. We have also learnt how to draw a diagram of a circuit using the symbols and we found out what things were conductors and what things are insulators.

Homework

Year 6 is a really important year with transition to Secondary at the end of the year.

Homework is a crucial way of helping children to remember the topics that are being  revised in class and that will be assessed in the SATS in May.

Homework for week beginning 2nd October is Electrical circuit symbols and multiplying decimals by 10, 100, 1000. This needs to be returned on Monday 7th October.

Some additional websites in which the children can play games to help with our work in class can be found in :-    http://www.topmarks.co.uk     under 7-11 years and place value

We have also been looking at embedded clauses, relative clauses and the use of colons and semi-colons in English and help with this can be found in:-

A New school Year!

In Pedrevan class we have started the new school year really well! Our topic is taking control. We are working hard on our Iron Man story and revising SPAG topics and maths concepts, last week learning about different types of nouns  and Place Value in maths. Our science is Electricity.

Spellings are given on Monday each week and checked on the following Monday. It is essential (one of our spellings!) that the children learn these spellings really carefully in class and at home each week so that they can increase the amount of words that they know and use them in their writing.

 

 

BLOG CHALLENGE!

Today I have set the challenge to make our blog posts more exciting!! The children have spent their time looking at other school’s blogs and discussing what makes them interesting. We have also looked at how we can appeal to a greater audience.

Our first task is to get other people reading our publications and to leave comments about what they think, so that we can improve.

Our second task is to get our work viewed by an audience further away than Britian!

 

Let the challenge begin….Mrs Nash x
