Stretham Community Primary School


Owl Class

Week Beginning 14th September

Another busy week of learning has dashed by in Owl class. We have been enjoying all sorts of activities as part of our learning and have made particular use of our logical, creative, inquiring and scientific minds. We have read poetry and found the poetry within song lyrics and the natural world around us. We have also drawn on the works of Phillip Gross. We have deconstructed and reconstructed numbers up to 10 million to help us understand their value. We have explored vignettes of design on Venetian masquerade masks. In Science, we have reviewed the systems within the human body and their functions, with a specific focus on the circulatory system. Whilst in History and Geography, we have been considering Italy, in particular Rome, as the origin point of the Roman Empire and as a geographical place of interest. 

Seeking positive imagery in poetry/ lyrics and finding descriptive inspiration from the natural world.

Year 6 explored the early origins of the Roman empire in History this week and were able to apply this knowledge to finding out more about the modern country of Italy in Geography.

Year 6 created vignettes of design by focusing on the detail contained in Venetian style maquerade masks.

In Maths, we have looked at ways to create and partition numbers up to 10 million to help us understand their value. We have been able to apply this knowledge to help us problem solve.
