We’ve had a really interesting week in Year 6! On Monday, Mr Littlewood shared a story with us about Heracles; we can’t wait to find out what next week’s story is! We learned more about the origins of democracy in our history lesson on Wednesday and had a very philosophical debate about who was allowed to vote in ancient Greece and who is allowed to today. We had lots of differing opinions on whether this is and was fair! In our science work, we began finding out about the classification of living things into the five kingdoms. What can you remember from the lesson?

Our Learn Its next week will be 7 x 8 = 56, 8 x 8 = 64 and 9 x 8 = 72

Read Theory update: we have completed a whopping 756 quizzes as a class and unbelievably, Jack Hen did 400 of those !!!!!

King of the Knowledge Points, most points earned this week and most quizzes completed this week: Jack Hen on 9818 (which is unsurprising given how much work he’s putting into it!)

This week’s Read Theory challenge is the same as last week: complete 60 quizzes on your table to earn 10 points.

Extra challenge: can you find out what ‘Advent’ means in Latin and when it begins this year?
