23.10.20 End of Term 1 summary:
This has been our first term in Year 6 and it has been a new experience after such a long time off school. In class, we have been reading a book called ‘Wonder’, about a boy our age called August, who looks different from other people and we like that it is written from different people’s perspectives.
Each week we do a new Enquiry, which is learning about a different state of being, e.g. being an engineer or being a scientist. Each week it is always fun! One Enquiry was a whole day on Zoom, learning about the Amazon Rainforest, which was very interesting because we learnt about the level of destruction happening in the rainforest and its impact on the entire world.
On Mondays we have been learning Spanish with Señorita Martinez, and we always have fun things to do! So far, we have been learning about sports in Spanish and dias de los muertos (the Day of the Dead).
