Welcome to the Y6 Rowling Class Webpage! 
 

A huge well done to all of the children in Rowling for their fantastic return to school after Christmas.

 

Maths 

In maths this week the children have worked hard looking at fractions. We have converted mixed numbers and improper fractions and looked at ordering and comparing numbers including the use number lines.

 

English 

This week in English we have begun our unit of work on The Wizard Of Oz. We have explored the first chapter of the text using our inference skills to make deductions about Dorothy’s life in Kansas. Following this, we have analysed films kills focusing on sound, colour and lighting.

 

DT 

We had an exciting start to our DT unit of work this week with the evaluation of some smoothie products! The children enjoyed tasting the smoothies and evaluating their appearance, taste and smell. We will use our likes and dislike from this session to inform the planning and creation of our own products.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

English 

 

In our English lessons this week we have been gathering content for our own version of ‘The Nowhere Emporium’. We have analysed a range of texts to create writers toolkits for character description and story openings which we will use during our shared write next week.

 

Maths 

 

In our maths lessons this week we have focused on decimal numbers. 

We have ensured we know the place value of numbers with up to three decimal places as well as multiplying and dividing these numbers by 10, 100 and 1000.
