This week we have been learning more about North America and all the biomes that occur within North America. We have also been doing lots of map work and identifying the biomes of major cities in North America.
We finished our letters of complaint to Mr K and Mrs Head and can't wait for a reply. We worked hard on our formal writing but also tried to use some persuasion too.
In maths we worked on fraction, decimal and percentage equivalences. This was tricky at first but we got through it and made some great progress.
Our Well Done Assembly pupils were Ellie W and Eva. They are both always pupils and have both made lots of progress in maths recently. Well done girls!
In science, we have been looking at classification. After last week, when we classified animals with our own headings, we discussed how taxonomists classify based on scientific fact. Some girls asked - can all things be classified? We investigated how random Rowntrees Randoms were using our own classification tables. We classified in pairs and thought of how we could create smaller groups thinking about: material, texture, colour, size and filling. Then, as a class, we compared to see if anyone had similar results. We concluded that... Randoms are completely random!

I've been so impressed with the time and effort taken for these science projects linked to our topic about Space. We've had pictures, models, research, presentations - all sorts! Thank you to everyone who took the time and effort to complete this at home. I've taken pictures of just a few and will look to try and get other work on the website such as the constellations, fact files and research presentations when I can.
I hope you had a good holiday and managed to have some fun. It's been great to see you all after so long off. We have a great year planned.
This week we focused on our recovery curriculum and looked at mental wellbeen and what tools we could use if we were'nt feeling great.
We started looking at basic punctuation straight away and even looked at some new punctuation just for year 5.
In maths, we started with place value and everybody did a fantastic job of remembering so much from last year.
Below are some of the exciting memories that children who are currently in Year 6 have experienced since starting school.
