Spring 1 Half Term Information 2021

This half term Year 6 have been learning about the constantly changing systems of crime and punishment throughout the ages. We began with the Romans, before studying the Anglo-Saxon, Tudor, Georgian and Victorian eras, the children were fascinated to see just how much things have changed in that time. In addition to this, Year 6 have been absorbed in the exciting tales of Robin Hood. We spent time reading a variety of Robin Hood stories, meeting many notable characters along the way, including Little John, Friar Tuck and Maid Marian. After this the children had the opportunity to craft their own Robin Hood style legend stories, before creating a tourist information board based upon the home of Robin Hood- Sherwood Forest!
Alongside our topic learning, we have been immersed within the world of algebra within our maths lessons. We created and used our own algebraic rules before using algebra to solve missing number problems. This was followed up with our most recent learning about measurement where the children tackled a range of problems focused on area and perimeter.
