Weekly Learning Review - Week Ending: 24 May 2018

Weekly Learning Review

Class: Year 6           Week Ending:  17.5.18
This week, the children learned about the different roles adopted by people during a newsflash. We watched a a BBC Newsflash about the birth of a royal baby. The children adopted the role of ‘News Anchor’, ‘Interviewer’ and ‘Interviewee’. The children wrote different news worthy scenarios and were given only minutes to prepare a news report for camera. They presented the reports to each other and focussed on improving question techniques. Through a comprehension exercise, the children read a passage about the Suffragette movement in the early 20th Century. The account was written in the north of England and we discussed the wide range of accents and dialects found across the UK. For example, the term ‘duck’ may be used as a term of endearment in the north of the country. The children wrote their own ‘Success Criteria’ for how they should answer questions eg in full sentences and taking care of presentation.
In mathematics, the children practised addition skills by calculating the perimeter of shapes and of plans. They also learned the vocabulary of time and practised reading the time; estimating time and solving word problems involving time.
The start of a series of lessons that deals with being more effective in being  proactive. The children explored several scenarios where being more proactive can improve the situation.
The children have been learning to separate mixtures and are understanding how separating by using different methods can be used in daily life. For example, in hospitals and in mining.
The children were introduced to the climate, land surface, transportation and settlements of the United Kingdom.
