This month we have been focussing on our new Maths topic: Position & Direction. We have looked at coordinates and quadrants, translations and reflections with coordinates. The children have been getting on really well with this topic and they all seem to be enjoying it! They have even had a go at drawing images using coordinates.

We have also been looking in a lot of detail at two battles: The Battle of Stamford Bridge and The Battle of Hastings. We talked about the difference sides involved in these battles and we even created our own storyboards to show the key events leading up to the Battle of Hastings. We are working hard at creating our own story descriptions for the battle and these are coming along very well.

We also had a fantastic day at Black Park where we did some observational drawings, had a beautiful nature walk and of course had some tasty food in our picnic!

We have had a very busy month and have worked so hard! The children have had the opportunity to meet their new teacher on Transition Day!  They asked lots of questions about Year 6 and took part in “Get to know you” activities.  We are looking forward to seeing how they blossom at the top the school in Year 6.
