  • Year 6 Weekly Roundup
English

Children have been learning the features of persuasive writing and started the week by recognising them in persuasive letters, speeches and advertisements. They were then set an advertising challenge by The Apprentice’s Lord Sugar. They worked in teams to produce a television advert.

Maths

This week, the children consolidated their understanding of the formal written method of short multiplication to calculate ThHTO × O; using this understanding, they then went on to solve missing number problems. They were introduced to the more compact formal written method of long multiplication to calculate TO x TO. The importance of estimating and checking answers to a calculation has been emphasized throughout.

Project Work

In Project Work this week, pupils spent time mind mapping their initial thoughts and ideas on how we could improve the teaching and learning at Dover Court School. With a partner, they then agreed on an invention that they would design, make, market and pitch during our Exit Point next week.

Mandarin

This week, we moved on to the topic of Fruits. Vocabularies about the fruits were introduced and consolidated in the lesson as well as the pronunciations and characters recognition. The descriptive sentence patterns were introduced and practised referring to this topic.

Computing

This week pupils continued being creative, communicating and collaborative in a Minecraft Education Edition map.  Minecraft is about problem-solving and the game inspires students’ higher-level and critical thinking skills.  It is also a very social game, where students can rely on other players for help in the sometimes-unforgiving Minecraft world.

Physical Education

During our PE lesson this week we have concluded our cross-country by looking at fun running competitions to show off our skills. We have undertaken a running “rock-paper-scissors” competition as well as playing capture the flag.

Music

In Stravinsky’s 'Ritual of the Two Rival Tribes,' instruments and sections of the orchestra pass melodies back and forth to create a sense of lively interaction. This week Year 6 students learned to play one of Stravinsky’s melodies and make compositional and performative choices to create the effect of battling instruments.

Homework
