Year 6 Retreat Day

Today, 7 other schools in our deanery joined us for a successful retreat day, where we got to meet children we will be going to school with next September and complete a number of activities. In the afternoon, Father Keith celebrated mass with other priests from the deanery also.

Catchphrase Maths

In year 6, we put together a grid of 25 questions on fractions and percentages for our catchphrases. We then involved the rest of the class by getting them to answer the questions. For tricky questions, we asked them to come up and show the class how they solved it.
We are excited to see what Maths topics everyone else chooses.

RE

Literacy (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)

Write a persuasive letter in which you try to persuade Willy Wonka to allow you to join the five lucky finders of the Golden Tickets on the once-in-a-lifetime tour of his Wonka Factory (despite the fact that you have no ticket!)

Remember to make a strong argument with clear points and evidence to support your points.

Also, remember to use your persuasive features:

1. Repetition:

Words or phrases are repeated so that ​they stick in the reader’s mind.​

e.g. Mr Wonka, remember what is was like to feel left out; remember how devastated you were.

1. Emotive Language:

When words are used to make the ​reader feel a certain emotion, like ​sadness or anger.​

e.g. My family are desperately poor, yet still gave their last pennies so I would have a chance to enter your competition.

1. Exaggeration:

When information is given that is ​over the top, or slightly untrue.​

e.g. I thought I was going to explode with anticipation!

1. Rhetorical questions:

Using questions that don’t need an ​answer to get the audience to think. ​

e.g. Mr Wonka, could you live with yourself if you ​missed out on this opportunity?
