We turned our classroom into a huge grid with four quadrants. Year 6 had to place themselves around the room and work out their coordinates. They also then worked on translations and moved to their new coordinates!
Year 6 have begun to look at Shakespeare. To introduce his language Year 6 had to search for quotes around school, memorise them and write them word for word back in the classroom. As an extra challenge they also had to guess which play each quote was from (there was a clue in most of them!). Year 6 also made some Shakespearean insults and compliments using language he used in his plays so please don't be offended if you are called a delicate tiger-booted welsh cheese - it's actually a compliment!
