Crew Mumby write as scientists!

Last week, Crew Mumby wrote like scientists in their touchdown pieces of writing. Some children chose to write up an experiment based on air resistance whilst others chose to write about water resistance. We talked about the formality of the piece, ensuring we included scientific vocabulary and that scientific theories were explained clearly. Our reports included data that we had collected in our science lessons which also supported our conclusions. I have really enjoyed reading these this weekend, Crew Mumby- Great work!

Place Value Revision (Y6)

We had a number of requests for additional homework at our Y6 network. As we have just finished our ‘place value’ unit of study, I have complied questions from previous test papers for children to complete at home. You should find a range of questions linked to place value, ordering numbers, negative numbers and rounding.

Share any photos or work to [email protected] as we like to celebrate hard work in our phase community meetings

Thanks, Mr Mumby
