Red Kites

During our English lessons, we have been learning about the mystery of Dracula. We have looked into where Bram Stoker gathered inspiration for his character (Whitby Abbey and Bran Castle) and used these to develop our own mysterious setting descriptions. Alongside this, we read the first two chapters of 'Room 13' by Robert Swindell and a short story entitled, 'This is not a fairy tale!' to write for a range of purposes. 


In maths, we having been focussing on a range of topics including ratio, geometry and statistics. Children have been working on their reasoning and problem solving skills.


The children have been enjoying there science topic about light and how the eye works. We have discussed about how light travels and investigated refraction, reflection and how shadows are formed.

Year 6 will have PE and library on a Wednesday afternoon. They can continue wearing their PE kit to school on this day to reduce time spent changing.


Maths homework is set on a Thursday and will be due back in the following Wednesday. 


After finishing 'Twitch' by M. G. Leonard, the children voted and we are now reading, 'Awful End: The Eddie Dickens Trilogy' by Philip Ardagh.


In Guided Reading, we are reading 'Wonder' by R. J. Palacio.
