Learning Lens 17th September 2021

We have had a fantastic week in Year 6!
In maths, we have continued with place value.  The children have learnt to round numbers up to ten million to any given number.   We've also revisited negative numbers.
In English, we've started our new class text, Secrets of a Sun King.  So far, the children seem to be loving it.  We've written a newspaper report about one of the characters - a professor who came to a rather mysterious and grisly death by spontaneous human combustion. The children have also written a curator's exhibition label for an Ancient Egyptian artefact, using parenthesis to explain technical vocabulary.  
On Wednesday, we had a history and art day.  Using oils pastels, the children created headdresses and crowns for their pharaoh selves.  In the afternoon, they had a history workshop and learnt about the hierarchy of Egyptian society through drama. 
In RE we've looked at the story of creation, and in science, the children have enjoyed discussing genetic and environmental characteristics.
The children have brought home their planners today which contain their Purple Mash, Mathletics and Times Table Rock Stars logins.   The children should have also brought home this term's home learning menu (you might find it in the bottom of their bags!).  Our home learning exhibition will be on the 1st November. 
Have a great weekend!
