Welcome to Lydford page.
We have all had a wonderful, fun-filled day full of activities. Here are a few of our favourite photos from the day.
Tomorrow is our disco and some lake activities, we are very excited. Thank you for our letters, we read them at lunchtime today.
We are all having a wonderful time so far, the sun even came out in Wales for us! Here are a few pictures of some of the things that we have done today. Everyone is now settled down for our first night at Abernant; we will put some more pictures up tomorrow.
From us all at Abernant Lakes : )
Year 6 were invited to The Ranelagh & Phoenix Hockey Festival. We were given mouth-guards and wore our NEW kit. Our children demonstrated great stick-work, defence and shooting skills. They won 2 trophies and were a credit to The School. If your children are interested in learning hockey, Ranelagh and Phoenix Club train their Juniors on a Sunday morning 9am at the University Astro pitch. Enter text...
Our theme is 'Into the Jungle'; use the 'Learning Grid' link above to see what we are learning across the curriculum.
We are reading 'The Explorer'. We are looking at how character is developed by an author and how the characters in The Explorer change over time.
In our writing we are looking at Rudyard Kipling. We have read some of the Just So Stories and are now researching Rudyard Kipling in order to write a biography on him.
This is how our Year 6 edit.........
This week we are continuing our place value work through ordering and comparing numbers to 10,000,000.
The objectives we will be covering are:
- read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10 000 000 and determine the value of each digit
- round any whole number to a required degree of accuracy
- use negative numbers in context, and calculate intervals across zero
- solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above.
This term, we are focussing on our inference, deduction and prediction skills; we will be looking specifically at answering longer questions and understanding that we have to select evidence from the text, use the quote and explain how this supports our viewpoints.
It is essential that children are reading daily and discussing what they have read with an adult a minimum of three times a week. Their reading should now be across a wide variety of text types. Below are some suggested titles of age appropriate texts that would be beneficial for your children to read.
