This year the theme is ‘One Kind Word.’ In Year 6 we have been spreading kindness by sharing kindness cards, working together to make friendship bracelets and reflecting on how kindness makes us all feel.
Kindness is a gift everyone can give.
“Angel has really helped me this week. She really deserved recognition for the kindness she has shown.” said Jayden.
Black History Month
As part of Black History Month, we have been learning about Walter Tull, who is widely considered the first African-Caribbean mixed heritage man to be commissioned as an infantry officer in the British Army. We were captivated by his story and were proud to put our work together to produce a class exploding book.
Here at Valley Road, we have been getting into the Christmas spirit by completing Christmas maths challenges. Every year group was provided with a different festive favourite and asked to make their very own chocolate-based calculations. I’m sure you will agree that maths can be fun, especially when sweets are involved.
We enjoyed making our own mathematical problems using a traditional tin of Quality Streets. We tried hard to be creative with our maths and made problems involving fractions, perimeter, ratio and algebra. Although we enjoyed completing our challenge we all agreed that the best part was eating the chocolate, once we had successfully solves each other’s calculation. Can you solve our problems?
