  • Year 6 Weekly Roundup
English

English this week has focused on punctuation and grammar. Children have taken part in various workshops to improve their knowledge and skills in punctuation and grammar. This week’s workshops have been on writing interesting sentences using various Alan Peat sentence types. In addition, there have been workshops on varying punctuation and vocabulary.

Maths

This week the children created their own number lines identifying decimal equivalents for key fractions (halves, quarters, eighths, fifths and tenths). They also found decimal equivalents to fractions by dividing the numerator by the denominator. The children then moved on to identifying equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages, using equivalent fractions to calculate percentages. Then for percentages without a known fraction equivalent, children divided by 100 and multiplied by the percentage needed. They then applied their knowledge of the calculation of percentages to solve problems.

Project Work

In project this week the children have continued to practice writing up experiments. They reflected on last week’s absorption experiment to write up their results.

Mandarin

This week, we continued the topic of fruits. We focused on the revision, which included all the vocabs and sentence structures we learnt during last two weeks. Character recognition and oral expression were reinforced. Multiple class activities were conducted during the class, especially, pupils had a chance to exchange their fruit with classmates by describing its feature (shape, colour, size and taste).

Computing

In this code.org stage student use the Artist environment to write programs that have looped statements inside another loop, which is called a nested loop.  They will break complex tasks into smaller repeatable sections and combine simple shapes into complex designs with nested loops.

Physical Education

During our PE lesson this week we have focused on breaking down the freestyle stroke in swimming. We have looked at partner observations and how to observe and give feedback to improve performance.

Music

This week Year 6 students experimented with different accompaniments for the 'Circle Dance' theme from Stravinsky's 'Rite of Spring'. Students discussed how altering the accompaniment altered the mood of the theme as well.
