Welcome to Year 6
During our first half term as Year 6 pupils we have been learning about the rainforest! We have looked at the people who live in the rainforest and how they live in such a wild and unpredictable environment; using the natural resources for food and shelter as well as passing their way of life through the generations using oral histories. Several of the everyday items we use today have rainforest origins and we were able to taste some of this produce as well as examine fair trade links across the continents. We used this information to create rainforest documentaries. In maths, we have revised our knowledge of place value and the four operations, using puzzles and word problems to help us develop our reasoning skills.
