Year 6 have had a marvellous week… have you?

This week in year 6
Maths: we have been multiplying fractions and we think we’ve got the hang of it now.

English: we have been doing a write about the Battle of Marathon and everyone’s write was really detailed; it was really calm.

D.A.R.E : we have been given a massive job to do this week … our DARE report: do it by Monday .

Reading: we were doing reading assessments with Mrs Larkin.

Some multiplying fractions questions :

* 9/10 x 8/9 =?

**12/7 x 7/8=?

***6/7 x8/12 x 3/6 =?

Is this a passive sentence: The fish ate the pizza.
Can you make 2 passive sentences

This week in Year 6 we’ve been doing:


This week in dare we have been looking at our tone of the voice and body language.


In maths we have been looking at long division in real life maths and turning them into decimals. Also in maths we went outside and placed onion sets in the compost and turned it into real life maths! How amazing is that?


In topic we have been looking at more of the Battle of Marathon and also we’ve brought in our projects and wow they’re fab!


In music we’ve been attempting to play yankee doodle and old Mcdonald.

Just saying a big thanks to all the teachers that have let us have all the equipment for our projects from Y6

What a busy week!

This week in maths, we have been looking at real life maths and the questions were about Ancient Greece. Also we have done some arithmetic in house teams.

In D.A.R.E., we learnt about  if you take too much medication, it could be  as dangerous as taking an illegal drug.

In English we have learnt about homophones and silent letters plus we began reading Tom’s Midnight Garden.

We really enjoyed learning about aliments in French: who can remember some of the sentences we wrote?

Have a fun-filled and safe weekend if you’re celebrating Bonfire Night.

Olive Oil Bread Challenge

Here is a Real Life Maths challenge. If we have at least 10 correct responses before Monday 7th November, I will build in some time to make the bread for real before Christmas.

Ingredients to make 1 loaf (serves 6)

  • 15g fresh yeast
  • 500g strong white bread flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

We will need to make enough for all of the children plus an extra loaf for the staff to try as well. What are the total quantities of ingredients that we will need? How much is it going to cost?
