Year 6 – Should people go travelling around the world?

This week we have been talking about going travelling around the world! We have been using our text, Kensuke’s Kingdom, for ideas and also our own experiences. Yesterday we had a debate in preparation for writing an argument next week. The children decided whether they were for or against travelling the world then came up with reasons why. They then responded to each other’s views.

Well done Year 6, especially our main speakers, Jake and Bailey.

Phonics

This week the children have learnt to read and write the sounds h, b, f, l and r.

Watch the videos to see how we say the ‘pure’ sounds and how the rhyme helps us to form the letters correctly.

We are also continuing to sound out and blend the sounds to read new words.

The children have learnt all Phase 2 sounds so over the coming weeks we will be consolidating this learning by applying our knowledge through games and activities. This will really embed reading and writing in a fun way.
