Welcome to Year 6!
Our new topic for IPC this half term is "They see the world like this!" People have been making impressions of the world since prehistoric times when we painted animals on the walls of caves. Throughout history, different cultures in different places and times have developed new skills and new ways to express themselves. Now it’s your turn! You are going to paint your impression of the world through art, music, dance, and much more. Have fun with the new topic.
We have had great fun so far learning Spanish. We have sourced a great tool to assist you with your skills. Here you can improve your Spanish by enjoying this mini series. Mi Vida Loca takes you on an intriging mystery adventure to Madrid and beyond in 22 episodes, each only ten minutes long, covering basic learning points for Spanish beginners.
A learning section compliments each episode. Go through the vocabulary and grammar in more detail and at your own pace, then complete activities for practice. Remember it is all about making your learning fun.

Probability a Measure of Chance
Probability is a measure or estimation of how likely it is that something will happen or that a statement is true. Probabilities are given a value between 0 (0% chance or impossible) and 1 (100% chance or certain). The higher the degree of probability, the more likely the event is to happen. We had fun with probability now create your own pages and start the fun.
