The children in year 6 have worked together practising new skills of skimming and scanning to retrieve information in order to answer comprehension questions. The children have then put these skills into practice by answering questions on the story “Talking Pictures” by Kathryn Coiffait. They have moved onto answering questions that the children have had to use inference a much trickier skill. As a reward for the hard work, effort and determination the children finished off with adjective sheriff which they loved.
The children in year 6 have started on their music topic today looking at the classic rock song “Living on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi. They have looked at pulse and rhythm; they have also tried singing and learning the vocals. They have had a group discussion about what musical instruments they may learn to play the song on.
Over the past week, the children have worked in groups making power points on each planet in our solar system. They had to find out the order of the planets from the sun, what the planet is made of and how long a year is, what the planet is made of and an interesting fact. They then presented their slide show to the class.
