How to lay out short multiplication in Year 6.
The Day the Air Raid Siren Sounded - last week, as the children arrived at school, the air raid siren sounded and we had to make our way into the air raid shelter. We spent the day in there together taking part in a number of activities that would have gone on back in 1940 in an air raid shelter in London. What a fantastic day we had!
Year 5/6 Common Exception word list
Year 6 have had a very busy first half term. We have focused most of our learning around the topic of World War 2 and have produced some fantastic poetry and biographies. In Maths we have looked at multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000, reminded ourselves about factors, multiples, prime numbers and square numbers as well as developing our addition and subtraction skills in real life situations (this involved us online shopping!). To make our learning fun we sometimes don't even bother to use our exercise books; this week we wrote on tables, then went around and corrected each others missing capital letters! Have a look at some of our photos.
