The children have been working in groups and researching the pros and cons of deforestation. This is linked to our learning around the book, 'The Great Kapok Tree'.
On Friday we will have a class debate where will we propose our motions, make our propositions, make counter points to those made by the others and then finally summarise our ideas.
Obviously all of us believe we should stop cutting down tress, but in the interest of balance, some of us had to debate the benefits of this practice.

The Year 6 Team
Please see below for remote learning activities. There are activities for English, Maths and Foundation subjects.
Please access the remote learning button on the school website, where you will find essential websites that will support home learning. We would suggest using Bug Club, Times Table Rockstars and Busythings daily. Your child has their own bookmark with individual log-ons to access these. If there are any issues with this, please contact the school office.
Please email Mr Tatum with any questions: email@example.com

A Well Deserved Break
So there it is, the first half term of this academic year is done. And what an interesting few weeks it has been. The children have demonstrated the sort or resilience that children are renowned for, having adapted brilliantly to the changes that have been forced upon them. This is all the more incredible given that they had the best part of five months at home - well done to you all!
It's true to say that I am proud of all of the children in the class for their efforts these past few weeks - they have set a wonderful standard to uphold. However, standing out in particular are our Marvellous Mathematicians, Super Spellers and Outstanding Learners. For these awards this term I have chosen:
Outstanding Learners: Ashimala and Isaac
Super Spellers: Lenny and Emilia
Marvellous Maths: Lola and Diwas
Thanks and well done again,
