Year 6 have had been learning about how to interpret different graphs. Today we learnt how to interpret line graphs.
Year 6 have been learning about the suffragettes and researched about a specific member! It’s been over 100 years since suffragette, Emily Davison, died campaigning for women’s rights. Nowadays in the UK, women have the same rights as men, but that wasn’t always the case. In the early 20th century women didn’t have the same rights as men – they couldn’t vote in elections and the vast majority could only get jobs as house servants. The battle for equality lasted a long time – today marks the 100th anniversary of one of the most important days in that fight. Today Year 6 tried to research the order of events that led up to Emily’s death and the events that occurred during her funeral.

Hawk class have had a fantastic autumn term! It has flown by and we have all been very busy. We have had a brilliant time looking at light and finding out more about how light travels and the causes of shadows. At the end of November, we enjoyed a school trip to Box Hill. We looked at the impact of tourism on the environment. It was a very cold but interesting day out of school! We have also had workshops on anti bullying and enjoyed a big foot assembly on the same topic. The children have also enjoyed learning about our whole school topic of disability awareness and have looked at ways in which life would be different if they were disabled as well as looking at some incredible disabled sports people.
It has been a busy term and the children have worked incredibly hard. They should be very proud of themselves. Enjoy a well deserved rest over the holidays and we will see you ready to learn again in the spring term!

As we reach the end of this term and move into the Spring term, we shall continue setting homework from the English and Maths SATs revision books.
If you are working through your homework tasks quickly and would like to spend any more time practising, then there is lots you can do. You may not have spotted it but there is a page on this blog called, “Test Papers”. On that page you will find lots of practice papers – for Reading, Maths and Grammar. The answers are also on the page so you can check through your work when you have finished.
Here’s a new site we’ve just been trying – we think it’s a great way to practise your times tables. You are racing to cross a bridge and can only move ahead by answering questions correctly. You can pick your character and also choose to have another character chasing you across the bridge! Give it a go!
