Term 1 - It's Alive!
Year 6 have been sharing their excellent thoughts in R.E today, linking to our enquiry question this term: Just because we can, does it mean we should? They have been debating whether it is right to clone or bring back extinct animals, focusing on religious beliefs & views on these topics. Well done Deer class!
We have started reading the tale of Frankenstein in our lessons and the children have posed so many brilliant questions and thoughtful comments about the story so far. They began by examining the front covers and using their deduction skills:
This then progressed onto recapping and applying a range of sentence types in a letter from Victor himself. The whole class made superb progress in using and punctuating simple, compound and complex sentences accurately (with a range of exciting conjunctions).
The Deer Class have been loving using Spelling Shed to help learn different spelling patterns. So many of the children have been accessing it at home too, showing a brilliant aspiration to achieve - there have been daily check-ins in class to see who is at the top of the leaderboard. Who will it be next week? Well done Year 6 for your super work!
Year 6 have had a brilliantly busy two days, already discussing this term’s enquiry question:
We’ve also produced some superb art of Frankenstein’s creature - the children are such a talented bunch! Here is our classroom display so far.
