Weeks 6 & 7

Welcome back to the 6C blog.

In the past few weeks we have been very busy.  The classes decided to give NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) a go.  We have set goals of writing as many words as we can for the month of November.  The aim is to write longer stories as well as get our typing speed up.

In Maths we have been looking at Angles at Transformation of shapes.  This has led us to creating our own Mandela designs which has proven to us just how hard these are to draw.  We really do appreciate the creators of these as ensuring that the pattern is mirrored has been a challenge but one that we enjoyed attempting.

In Reading we have been looking at character descriptions.  Using our class novel “Counting by 7s” we each attempted to draw one of the main characters.  We found it really interesting as to who different each of the character drawings turned out.  It was great to see what one person picked up on and what the other person picked up on and how this altered the picture.

Also this week was remembrance day.  To show our understanding and to pay tribute we created a remembrance wall showing all the things we know about those that fought for our country in the wars.  Lest We Forget.
