Learning Lens 26th November

In English this week, Year 6 have thought about the island of Papua New Guinea, and debated whether ‘Islands should be encouraged to keep their traditions and should not be changed by visitors or newcomers'.  Following their debate, they wrote a balanced argument about this using vocabulary to help link their points.  They have also practised using semi-colons and colons in their writing. 
In maths, the children have been adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers. 
In history, we have learnt how Ancient Athens in Greece was the starting place of democracy.  We looked at how some of the city-states of Ancient Greece were ruled, and compared Athens democratic rule to the UK's modern-day democracy.   We also learnt about Alexander the Great, and how he united the city-states in Greece and continued to build his empire until it became the biggest empire in the world. 
In RE we looked at the parable of The Wise and Foolish Builders, and how Christians use the parables to guide them in their daily lives. In PE, the children put together a gymnastic routine to show various different rolls.
The children have worked really hard this week and had a positive attitude all round.  Well done Year 6!
