It has been another really busy week in P6A! Here are a few of the things we have been up to.
We learned about the famous French impressionist artist called Claude Monet. We then created work inspired by his piece ‘The Water Lilly Pond’. It was fun to mix different colours and use different painting techniques to paint.
Our focus this week was on multiples and factors. One of the activities to help us develop our understanding was to try and find as many different ways as possible to design a box to fit 36 sweets. This was tricky but we all really enjoyed it.
We were playing central net games in P.E. This involved us getting into groups and moving around different stations. The stations involved throwing, catching and batting. Throwing tennis balls was the most challenging station because you had to think about your rhythm and timing.
To practice using speech marks we created a dialogue for the short, silent film, ‘Light’. We had to think about what the characters might say and remember all the punctuation!
We hope you have a great weekend!

On Wednesday we will give a presentation, using these ideas, to ‘The Dragons’. Our focus in numeracy this week has been mixed numbers and improper fractions. To do [...]
