Our Learning in P6N w/c 24th September

LITERACY 

 

In literacy we learned how to write a summary. As a class we all wrote a summary about the whole class novel Friend or Foe.  We used the five question in five words technique.  We could only write five words for each of the questions – who? What?why? When? Where? 

We then used this technique to help us write a summary for our reading home work.  This is practice for the literature circle role – ‘Super Summariser’.   

 

We also looked at phrases from Friend or Foe which created excitement and danger in a drowning scene. 

 

Our spelling rule this week was ‘tion’ says ‘shun’, e.g. attention.

MATHS 

This week in maths we have been learning the rules of divisibility for the 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 8x, 9x and 10x tables. 

2x- it is even 

3x- if the digital route is in the 3x table 

4x- if you can half it and it is still even 

5x- if it ends with a 0 or a 5 

6x- if its divisible by 3 and if it is even 

8x- if you can half it and it is even and if you can half it again and it is still even 

9x- if the digital route is in the 9x table 

10x- if it has a 0 in the units  

We also learned the traditional method of division please see the videos!
