What a week in Year 6!

Home learning in year 6 has been very impressive this week! Pupils have shown determination, creativity and passion as they have worked.  Our focus has been algebra, inferred writing, and on the town of Huntingdon: its amazing impact on our lives and the lives of those before us.  Throughout the last few weeks pupils have explored the history of Huntingdon, becoming active members of Huntingdon society by investigating the present needs and make up of the town, and then finally looking into the future of our town.  

We have seen such pride and imagination in writing and projects, with some children really finding a passion for setting a scene.  In both English and the weekly projects, the children have been able to decipher and improve scenes from fantasy and reality.   

In maths, the children have started working with algebraic expressions and operations.  Each day, the pupils have challenges themselves to learn and apply key features of algebra, such as calculation, formulae and expression.  They ended the week completing a quiz based on the vocabulary and concepts they learned.  

The teachers and TAs of year 6 are so proud of the work handed in this week and it has been a struggle choosing the shout-outs each day due to the amazing work handed in.  Congratulations to Baker, Giuliano and Katie-Anne for Star of the Week!  They have been recognised for reliance, respect, and pride towards themselves, their work, and those around them.  It is a real pleasure seeing your work and ideas, though it is not the same as in person.  In keeping with the spirit of the anniversary of VE Day, we ask that you all take time to feel proud, happy, and cared for.  We are looking forward to seeing you all again!  In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.
