It’s hard to believe that we are in Term 2 already! The amount of work and learning over the past term – and a week – has been phenomenal. We have been truly impressed with the working attitude and maturing behaviours shown by all in Class 6.
Wolf Brother was a huge success last term, everyone was hooked by the plot and the fates of Torak, Wolf and Renn. For those who were unable to follow the entire story with us, due to school visits or other appointments, we have several copies of Wolf Brother in the school and you may like to read it in your own time. Furthermore, many children are looking to continue the series and have already begun the second book: “Spirit Walker”. It’s lovely to see so many children engaged in reading.
On to Term 2, we begin two main topics this term: World War 2 and Fractions. Now, I’m not entirely certain they will ever go together, but they are our two main focuses for the term.
Fractions has so far seen us understand the basics of fractions and begin to comprehend the difference between: like fractions, unlike fractions and equivalent fractions. We will manipulate them to solve and investigate challenging problems.
World War 2 will continue to run throughout the entire term. We will research political leaders of the time, study the initial events prior to WW2, experience the lives of those left in Britain during the war and much much more. As this blog goes out, we will have already taken on the role of Neville Chamberlain and written our own outbreak of war speech.
