As our photos show, we have had a wonderful start to the year in M6. We have tackled place value head on in maths, covering rounding, negative numbers, Roman Numerals and comparing/ordering numbers up to ten million. In English, we have completed our unit of work on ‘Flotsam’, resulting in some fantastic descriptive writing and we have been writing to large companies in an attempt to persuade them to reduce their carbon footprint. We have begun investigating Vikings for History and been learning how to say significant time periods in Spanish. Next week, we are beginning our science topic on animals, including humans, and will initially focus on the functions and components of blood, which links into our current English text: Pig Heart Boy. Look out for lots of exciting pictures next week!
