It's Friday again - already! This week we have been writing stories about hope and practising rounding numbers. May need a bit more practise on negative numbers! In history, we have found out about Kindertransport - the evacuation of Jewish refugee children from Germany and other countries during WW2. Today was European languages day, so we watched a live streamed lesson about pirates in French and danced along to some Spanish songs. We had the first of our Friday arithmetic challenges- we hope to improve a little every week. Homework is a 10minute reading and a 10minute grammar activity. The children also all have ten new personal spellings to learn. Please encourage those reluctant readers to read every day - it's really important for their learning across the curriculum. Some children really struggled with their ideas for stories and this is usually because they haven't read enough stories to get ideas from. Have a great weekend everybody. 😀👏👍
It's Friday again and the end of a busy week in Year Six. The children have worked very hard on baseline assessments as well as learning more about The Blitz and about the global effect of WW2 including how people from all over the Commonwealth came to Britain to help with the war effort. I have sent them home with their half termly topic homework which I will post on here too. If they would like to do any sort of project linked to our topics, I am more than happy for them to use their imagination. They can use Google Classroom and Google Docs or Google slides and send work to me electronically or bring it back into school for me to see and share with the class. Spellings will be tested every Friday and the weekly homework (maths place value this week) needs to be brought in on Friday when we'll go through it together. I hope you all have a great weekend.
We have had a really good start back to school and the children have been amazing! They have shown how resilient they are and have just taken everything in their stride. We have begun to knuckle down to work and the children have responded well. All children have ten spellings to practise in their reading folders and they should do some reading and times table rock stars practise for homework this week. Formal homework will begin next week. I hope you all have a great weekend - can't believe it's Friday already. Congratulations to Kenzie - our STAR of the week! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
It was lovely to see all the children back today and there are no worries in my "worry box" so hopefully everyone is feeling a little less anxious and ready to start work tomorrow. All children have brought home their reading diary and a reading book today, unless they're going to be reading a book from home. They must bring their reading book to school every day along with their reading diary. If this is a problem, they can have one book to read at home, which stays at home, and another book to read at school which stays at school. I expect them to read at home a little every day and there is a "reading miles challenge" in their reading diary which we have talked about today. Please look at the diary and its contents sometime this week with your child. Just a reminder that we will have PE on Friday morning and children should wear their PE kit to school I that day. Bring on day 2! 🤗
