Year 6

Maths

In maths we have been looking at fractions.  We thought about how we could turn an improper fraction into a mixed fraction.  We then used our knowledge to help us when we added fractions.   Quite often after we had added the fractions we found they became improper fractions.

Science

We have been thinking about how our heart rate increases when we do exercise.  We had to choose how we were going to plan and do our investigations.  The four topics that we chose were: Does your age affect your heart rate when you do exercise?  Does your height affect your heart rate when you do exercise?  Does the type of exercise affect your heart rate?  Does your gender afftect your heart rate after you've done exercise?

Literacy

In year 6 we have been reading a book called 'Eye of the Wolf'.  We have been thinking about the characters' thoughts and feelings.  During English we thought about the characters and decided if we liked or disliked them.  We had to explain why we liked or disliked them.

Science

In science we have been learning about the circulatory system.  This includes how the heart and lungs wqork together transferring oxygenated blood around the body.

Literacy

In literacy we've been reading a book called Kensuke's Kingdom.  We have been focusing on Michael's feelings throughout the book so far.  We received a letter from Michael and he was asking for advice on whether he should sail around the world or not. We then pretended to by Agony Aunts and replid providing solutions for his dilemma.
