This week in year six we have been looking at calculating percentages and fractions of quantities in maths. We have been playing lots of maths games and doing word problems.
We have been looking at poems and today we did a Priory’s All Write in Literacy. For our class book we are reading Wind Singer: Slaves of the Mastery. What has happened in the story so far year 6?
In Science, we have been looking at how to keep your heart healthy.

Updated spelling games here. Don’t forget to have a try at the grammar games too!
Following the first of our visits to the Workhouse, I thought I’d retry with this question,
‘The Workhouse: Sanctuary or Sentence?’
What do you think it means? Is there a clear answer? I’ll be interested to find out your thoughts… As well as this, you can also use this post to share your thoughts on the visit.
Here is the link for some grammar revision (the one on phrases and clauses will be very useful for Mrs Howard’s reading group children)
and here is the link for the spelling games.
Good luck: some of them are quite tricky!!
As today was World Book Day, we decided to ‘link our learning’ and celebrate it by looking at a very popular book from the Victorian era: Oliver Twist. We began the day with a serving of gruel before sampling other delights later in the day such as pease pudding, hot sausage & mustard and cold jelly & custard. As you can see from the photos, we definitely thought some of the foods were more glorious than others!
