English

Children have continued their narrative topic. This week’s writing workshops have focused on learning to use suspense effectively and being able to use direct and reported speech correctly. Children have thought about the purpose of speech in narratives to convey character or advance the action. They then used these skills in planning and writing their rising action sections of their stories.

Maths

This week the children have been adding and subtracting decimals to two places using mental strategies and jottings. Children have applied their mental addition and subtraction to solve multi-step problems, focusing on understanding the problem and which calculations will lead to the answer.

Project Work

Moving around the classroom with a partner, children had to retrieve information from different fact cards. This gave them an insight to numerous different famous inventors. We then explored one inventor in detail. Carefully watching a video on Alexander Graham Bell, children had to answer comprehension based questions on his life, inspiration and ideas. Using this knowledge, children then produced an Edmodo profile for him.

Mandarin

This week we continued with the topic of colour. On the base of structure of indicate colour, and how to ask and answer about the colour. We also learnt more sentence patterns about the colour by making dialogues, and read a story about rainbow. Besides, the students drew a picture about our campus by using the colours and wrote several sentences they had learnt.

Physical Education

During our PE lesson this week we have looked at running over different terrains in cross-country. We have learnt how to undertake hill running as well as how our technique changes on a straight section of our course.

Music

This week Year 6 students explored how Stravinsky's 'Rite of Spring' evokes a primitive time of mysterious, wild rituals. One ritual depicted is a traditional Russian dance called a 'khorovod'. Students discussed how the ritual may have come about in the context of winter and spring. Students then learned to play Stravinsky's incantation melody using the keyboards.
