Wednesday 12th December


What a busy day it has been in year 6, we started the day with some maths, I kept a close watch to make sure that they were all busy getting on. Then we had English I sat with a wonderful year 6 pupil who taught me how to write a character description, I can now use a expanded noun phrase!


This afternoon we did some art based on their theme, creating mexican day of the dead masks, looking at the carefully drawn patterns and intricate designs.
