Last week, the children started a new topic entitled "The Present".
We considered the present, as distinct from the past and thought about how to plan to make the most of the present moment.
The children learned about how to make better decisions, and how decisions made in the past can affect our present.
The children made posters on how to eat healthily, and wrote an instructions text on how to get a good night's sleep. They also thought about the mental and physical benefits of exercise.
We started to make inroads into the Y6 maths syllabus: we learned how to read whole numbers up to 10 million, and practised column addition and subtraction, as well as learning to use short multiplication (including on decimal numbers).
