January 2020 in Year 6

Year 6 are ready and back with a bang to start a new decade!

We have worked very hard on our entries for the Rotary Club competition about our future intended jobs – watch this space for how we get on!

We have really enjoyed our food tasting and Mexican-inspired food technology; some items were more popular than others but we all had a great time making our tortilla, salsa and guacamole, then tasting afterwards.

On a more serious note, we enjoyed our trip to St Albans Cathedral for the Anne Frank + YOU exhibition. This involved a series of workshops which although challenging to reflect on, allowed us to learn about prejudice and discrimination suffered throughout history and how we may prevent it from continuing. We also linked this to our British values work, considering on tolerance, respect and integrity.

Our maths work has involved a lot of shape this term: we have found out how to calculate the areas of triangles, parallelograms, circles and shapes involving mixtures of these.

In PSHE, we have been thinking about our dreams and goals, setting goals for ourselves in the future and reflecting on how to achieve these. In Re, we have considered what the Bible tells Christians about love being eternal and unconditional; we created freeze-frames to help us represent each passage given to us.

What a busy month!
