# Wythall Transport Museum Trip

Thank you to Miss Bond, for organising a brilliant day out for the the first half of Year 6 (Mr Tipper’s and Mrs Thomas’ English groups will go later in the school year) to Wythall Transport Museum. We had a great day. Here are some photos:

# Playground Arithmetic

Today, my group had fun writing arithmetic questions for the rest of school to solve.

# Plane competition

Well done to Ben, who won our plane competition – and even beat 6HM!

I’m judging the best decorated plane competition soon. What do you think?

Thank you for all of the people that took part in the competition.

# Number Talks

How would you calculate 18 x 5 in your head?
Can you think of another method to use?
Here are some my group’s  ideas. Which method do you think is most efficient?

# Hockey Warm up Games

In PE, we invented our own warm up hockey games to practise long and short passing.

# House Captains

Well done to our house captains for working hard with Mr Gale last week. Here they are reporting their work back to the whole school today.

# 15th September update

It’s been a busy week – it feels like Year 6 has now truly got going.

In PE, we began our gymnastics module. We will be creating our own sequences involving 6 different types of jumps. We will be thinking about extension, tension and lift.

In Maths, we have been studying the placevalue of digits up to tens of millions. Next week, Year 6 will be working on rounding numbers.

In English, we have continued our module on persuasive writing. We have also been working hard on our spellings and word meanings.

In Science, we reflected on our prior knowledge of our new topic, evolution. Then we began to learn about how different types of fossils are formed.

This afternoon, we had a special visit from a music company called Rock Steady. We listened to lots of up to date songs being performed live in order to inspire a love of music.

Homework this week is to design a paper plane for our ‘fly off’ next week. Prizes will also be given for the best looking plane.
