This week we have been peforming and writing poetry in Year 6. We have written acrostic poems and kennings inspired by our focus book: The Lost Spells, by Robert Macfarlane. There are some examples of our work below.

In Maths, we have completed our unit on fractions. We have been on quite a journey, and now can add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions, as well as find fractions of amounts. We have found how useful our times tables are when calculating with fractions.

For History, we found out about historical black figures in Britain going back to Roman times, and linked this with other cultures that we have learnt about that came to settle in Britain, such as the Anglo-Saxons, the Vikings and the Normans.

We have begun our Science unit, which is all about evolution and inheritance. We started by looking at inherited characteristics such as eye colour.

PE found us practising tag rugby.

Acrostic poem by Maxwell:

Sandwich stealer, squawking swiper,

fishing boat hijacker,

Egocentric thieving,

Aggressive and belligerent,

Gangster of the beachfront,

pooing on your car front,

Untrusyworthy, deceiving,

Living the dream,

Leaving you ravenous – the seagull!

Kenning poem by Lacey:

I am a blood-bringer,

Human-hater,

Jungle-stalker

War-starter,

Bone-destroyer,

Body-shredder,

Deer-hunter,

Tree-climber,

Camouflage-master,

What am I?

Answer: Tiger!
