We worked in pairs to solve multiplication questions involving two, three and four digits.
We have been learning how to build a fire using sticks from our forest school. We then enjoyed a book outdoors.
In Year 6, our topic this term is ‘The Shang Dynasty’.
Take a look at some of the fantastic work we have been doing.
As part of our half term homework, we were asked to research and produce some creative poetry linked to the Shang Dynasty.
Take a look at Khadija’s poem.
We have been using the Harry Potter books to help us with our imaginative writing.

Thank you to everyone who attended our production.
We enjoyed having our Pudsey Bear treats during lunchtime. Thank you to our lunchtime ladies.
Year 1 and Year 6 today teamed up to plant new trees near the forest. At Carlton we were lucky enough to receive a tree pack from Sir David Attenborough who is campaigning for new trees to be planted across the UK. His campaign is also heavily supported by the Queen. The children partnered up with the Year 1 children and were continuously encouraging them to try, join in and use vocabulary related to planting.
Year 6 have spent the afternoon researching and commemorating the centenary of Remembrance Day. This year celebrates 100 years since the end of world war 1. The children split up and some created a wreath whilst others researched and created a fact file on Remembrance Day.

#Not in my Name!
Children in Year 6 had an interesting class discussion about terrorism. Children discussed how a terrorist attack could create a range of strong feelings within them, including curiosity, anxiety, fear and anger. Children learnt about the ‘Not in my Name Campaign’ in which British Muslims condemned terrorist attacks and the terrorist who claimed to carry the attacks out in the name of Islam. 6NA believe it is important that their feelings and opinions are expressed, listened to, valued, respected, and therefore created poems to express their opinions and feelings about terrorism.
Why am I the one who is being blamed?
It’s not done in my name.
This is totally haram,
Killing is forbidden in the Quran.
This is their game of terror,
However, why should we surrender?
They think they have so much power,
Whilst they destroy the human race, every hour. They simply have no compassion.
Those who fight in the name of Islam, They are the ones who don’t represent my Islam! In my religion, we have tolerance and respect towards all.
They want fame but tell them,
NOT IN MY NAME!
By Momin & Abuzarr
Like slavery and piracy, terrorism has no place in the modern world- George W. Bush
Today, selected children worked as coaches with some children in Year 6. The role of the coaches was to guide and support children in understanding and building their mathematical skills when multiplying. Coaching helps to build independent learners who make choices about their learning and develop perseverance. It also enables children to practice and consolidate the skills they have learnt.
As you are aware, we have subscribed to mathletics for children in year 6. Children have their own unique usernames and passwords. Mrs Akhtar regularly sets tasks for children on the site therefore, it is extremely important for children to have access to this site to consolidate their mathematical understanding. In the last year, children who accessed this site every day achieved better results in their KS2 SATs results.
