Filling in the blanks

We’ve had another busy week in Y6 this week. In English, we have continued our work on the Little Match Girl where we created some beautiful story paths as well as using the story to help us with lots of different grammar features. Can you write a detailed list that has colons and semi colons in it?

In topic, we started to look at parts of the world that were a part of the British Empire. Although a lot of the topic this term is history based, we found that we needed to recap on our geography learning! What can you remember about latitude, longitude and the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn?

To begin with, we were finding it tricky to locate many places on a blank world map but we’ve worked really hard and we’re quite confident now with Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Aden, India, South Africa, British East Africa, British New Guinea and British Guiana. There’s a lot more work to come around this though – not all of these places have the same names as they did in the Victorian era!

Over the weekend, can you find a way of remembering where Nigeria is located? Keep looking at your Knowledge Organiser to help you!

    1. Hi Riah, it’s great to hear from you πŸ™‚ I’ve been wondering how you are and if you’re enjoying your new school. This year has gone so fast – I bet you can’t believe you’ve nearly done half a year already! Things are fine still at Priory πŸ™‚

  3. It has been a busy week and the trip to watch Oliver was amazing and learning about the British Empire in the Vitorian times was cool. I also enjoyed reading the little match girl and getting ready for our priory’s all write.

  4. Hi Mrs Larkin me and Chloe can still remember that the bobby down bit is India.

    The little match girl was cold : she tried to warm herself up
    The little girl lit a match and saw so many things: a scrumptious turkey; bright orange carrots; crispy, roast potatoes; and peas greener than grass.

  5. This is my list :
    The destitute little girl imagined a great feast before her: a succulent roast goose, cooked to perfection; bright orange carrots; golden-brown roast potatoes, crispy and fluffy; and crispy yorkshire puddings.

  6. Hi mrs Larkin this is my list.
    No-one imagined what beautiful things she had seen: the polished stove with brass feet; the bright Christmas tree; and her bright, beautiful grandmother.

  8. Hi Mrs Larkin I hope that you are having a nice week so far. Here is a list with a colon in it. The poor match seller’s clothes weren’t very good: a brown, old apron; slippers that once belonged to her mother; and old dirty clothes.
    Today I saw Miss Taylor and we spoke to her she said that she really misses us at Priory.
