Printing in Year 6

In Year 6 we have been exploring the work of Victorian artist William Morris. We have been mimicking his work in our sketchbooks and making our own floral and nature themed designs based on his work. Today we chose our favourite and etched it on to a piece of polystyrene to use to make multiple prints of the same design. It was lots of fun and so interesting to see how different everyones designs were!

 

Investigating Biographies

Today we compared the biographies of Anne Frank, Tom Daly, Barak Obama and Florence Nightingale. We looked at the organisational features and structural features, noting down key words or phrases we might use in our own writing. We then ranked the biographies deciding which we thought was the best and why.

Westminster Advent Carol Service

Today, year 6 were welcomed by the Catholic Children’s Society (CCS) to be part of the Nativity Service in Westminster Cathedral. It was such a joy to celebrate with all the children from across the diocese. Our head boy Harry and head girl Alice were delighted to drop off our donation to help those in need this Christmas. We were delighted to support the Catholic Children’s Society in the incredible work they do.

Adding and subtracting mixed numbers and improper fractions in Year 6.

Today, we looked at adding and subtracting mixed numbers and improper fractions. We agreed that, to add and subtract, we needed to have both parts of our number sentence as an improper fraction and our denominators needs to be the same so that our parts are equal. This meant that we needed to do two steps before finding the answer to the number sentence.

Houses of Parliament

On Friday we went to the Houses of Parliament. It was such a special and memorable day, we had a tour of part of the building and even got to sit in on debates happening in the House of Commons and the House of Lords! The children were exceptional, asking brilliant questions and showing off their politics knowledge – they were much better than me!
