Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

In Numeracy this half term, we have been looking at shapes. This week, we were discovering how to calculate the volume of cuboids. Once we understood what volume meant and how to calculate it, we decided to get hands on with unifix cubes! We were given a set volume and we had to create a cuboid shape that had that particular volume. We had to think carefully and we came up with many different cuboids with the same volume; it was challenging but also fun!

Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed the start to their topic of Letters in Literacy. To begin, they were given a secret mission to break codes and solve puzzles using a range of skills and abilities; we had many excellent code breakers in our class. They were then given the opportunity to write a letter to Secret Agent HQ to request a position as a secret agent using persuasive language. The children will continue to draft their letter throughout the coming weeks; hopefully we will have many successful applicants!

Religious Education
In Year 6 we have been learning about our class saint: St Bernadette. We have looked at her life story and the examples she set to others. We also looked at how the Catholic virtues (Eloquent & Truthful) were present in her life and in her story. St Bernadette stated the truth consistently about seeing visions of Our Lady Mary in Lourdes whilst no one else believed her. We discussed how important it is to always tell the truth, regardless of pressure from our peers.
