w/c 11th November 2019:

Year 6 have had an exciting start to term 2! We've started our new topic and our class book by Michael Morpurgo; Kensuke's Kingdom. Discussing what we already know about Japan and what we would like to find out, we also travelled around the world on Google Earth to look more closely at its different features.

In numeracy Mrs O'Neill's class will be looking at the order of operations and BIDMAS. Mr Bibby's class will be continuing their work on fractions. In literacy the children will be following the story of Michael and Stella in Kensuke's Kingdom.

Redwood have been extremely lucky this week, with a fascinating visit from a Professor of physics at the University of Bath. His workshop on light (which included a talk from Photon the robot) had 5 different interesting elements for the children to engage with.

If you are on Twitter make sure you follow us @CombedownY6 as we look to share more photos of the children learning in class.

Mymaths homework is online and set weekly, we also encourage children to continue practising different skills on doodle maths. Weekly spellings are sent home each Friday but can also be downloaded/viewed here:

Have a lovely weekend and kind regards,

The year 6 team.
