In Maths, we have been learning how to :
Add and subtract integers
Round numbers to 10, 100 and a 1000
How to use negative numbers when adding and subtracting.
In English, we have started a non-chronological report about a chosen country in the continent of Africa. We have included punctuation, sub-headings and parenthesis.
In Art, we have been inspired by black artists that have made their own creations,. We have made our own sketches of their artworks and after, we painted them using water colours.
During PE with Premier Sports we have enjoyed learning the skills of tennis. On Mondays, We have also been swimming where we have improved our swimming techniques.

Eating fruit snacks
Monday 13th September - Friday 17th September
It’s been a busy second week back for the Magnificent Maugrims. We have been digging deeper in to our Maafa topic and really starting to understand the transatlantic slave trade, we also started to form opinions and ask questions to gain a greater understanding.
This week we had our first session with Premier Sports, in which we started to cover the basics of tennis. After the recent success of Emma Raducanu at the US Open, Year 6 felt really inspired and fancy their chances of making it big in the tennis world. Miss Durant said she was really impressed with the skills that we showed.
We have had some big challenges this week, but we’ve risen to the challenge and will continue to push ourselves out in to the deep!
Stay tuned for more fun, excitement and hard-work that will take place in Maugrims over the next few weeks.
