Our Learning this Week

Word of the Week

Every week, the Year 6 children will be learning about and discussing a new word.


The word of the week this week is: crude.


The children will be reviewing:

  • Synonyms of the word
  • Etymology
  • Definition
  • Using the word in a sentence

Year 6 have had a great week 2. We have continued to be good role models around the school, and setting good examples of how to behave both in and outside the classroom. 



In English we have started Running on the Roof of the world. We have explored some new Tier 2 and 3 vocabulary, created some very clear predictions based off inferred information, and looked closely at suspenseful language. 



In Maths we have continued to look at place value and focused on rounding, negative numbers and decimals. 


Concept Learning

In Geography, we have continued looking at mountains, looking closely at their features and how they are made. We have watched some extraordinary climbers attempt to climb Everest and become familiar with fold, fault block and dome mountains. 

In RE we have begun our Caring for the World unit and thought hard about our commitments, not only to our faiths, but also to ourselves. 

In PE we have been learning new skills in Tennis.


Great work Year 6
