 Weekly Review – week ending 5.1.18

Time for our new Topic... The life and times of William Shakespeare.

We began our week with a splendid start looking at who William Shakespeare was and his contribution to English Literature.  The children have experienced different works by Shakespeare and Year 6 will begin to primarily focus on Macbeth, from the beginning of next week.

In English we have been examining what makes an effective biography. We began by looking at the structure of a  wide range of biographies and then progressed to using the computers to help us research the life of William Shakespeare. We have finished the week by writing up our own biography on William Shakespeare which will be displayed on the 'Published' section of our 'Wall of Fame'.

In PE Mrs Burton had the pleasure of accompanying Year 6 curling with Mrs Ronaldson and the students all worked really hard to improve their delivery of the stones on the ice.

In Maths the children have continued their work on decimals and looked at how we can multiply and divide them by whole numbers. I have been impressed with the students grasp of the process and next week we will be aiming to extend their knowledge into greater depth.

It has been a pleasure to watch Year 6 start to really settle into their work this week and see the talent that we have in our class.

I hope you all have a restful and joyful weekend.

Mrs Pollard
