January 2019 in Year 6

After a good rest, we enjoyed coming back to school and seeing our friends. In maths, we have completed our percentages topic, calculating percentages of amounts and using these to solve problems as well as working backwards. We have also used our shape knowledge in Maths to calculate areas of more complex shapes such as triangles and parallelograms, as well as ones made from multiple rectangles in L T and U shapes. We also enjoyed writing our entries into the Rotary essay competition and look forward to finding out over the next few months which ones made it to the top 3 which are set to the finals.
