Science and Light
How does light travel? This is the question we have been asking ourselves. To help us investigate we have studied the sun, made puppets and used wool to represent the the light from a light source.
This term we have been focusing on fractions, percentages and decimals. To help with decimals, we have used place value charts to help with recognizing the value of each digit.

Parental Engagement - Maths
This week we had great fun meeting our partner schools at Launceston College and joining in a Multi-skills afternoon. We enjoyed learning how to play volleyball, hockey and the fine art of orienteering.
During this Autumn term, we are lucky to have Plymouth Argyle coaches in school to put us through our paces and teach us how to play Tag Rugby.
Working in pairs, Year 6 have been exploring positive and negative numbers. They have been applying their understanding that when solving problems 0 needs to be included in the calculation.
During Maths, we have been looking at the value of each digit in a given number and being able to partition them. Once we mastered this we were able to compare and order numbers up to 10 million pictorially. Using ICT, we have explored more than and less than as a recap on the symbols < >.
The new Year 6's have shown great resilience during their first week back at school. They have all taken responsibility and thrown themselves, positively, into their learning. This half term, during English, they are concentrating on writing a non chronological report. To help them begin, they have been looking around the class room at different pictures, to help generate collective nouns that relate to the characteristics of the creature.
