Phase 4 have been learning how to write and redraft our writing effectively. First we looked at writing a story ending on Author day and then we looked at writing a diary entry - both of these were based on Shackleton's journey. In maths, we have been working on short division. We have also been learning about sleep and how not having enough sleep can affect us and food chains - who is eaten by whom.

---------------------------------

The children have been taken on a magical journey to find the gold which was
hidden somewhere on Alchemy Island. To help find the gold, the children
had to write a range of genres including fantasy narratives; riddles, poetry
and scientific reports to support the Alchemist in the exploration of the
gold. The children explored a range of grammatical styles and sentence
structures by making close links to the National Curriculum. These include
using fronted adverbials; simple parenthesis, layout devices to help build
sentence cohesion within paragraphs.
By the end of the half term, the children had written a range of genres
expressing their narrative writing as well as subtle shifts of formality in the
writing of non-chronological reports.

We did a lot of work about respect during our Anti-Bullying week.

The whole of Year Six did an amazing assembly all about it.
