CHRISTMAS HOMEWORK

Could the children complete 1or 2 book reviews. See attached review form below.

Could they also plan their argument for and against the Moon Landings. Form attached below.

If they have time could they write an explanantion of how one of their new toys/gifts work. (Can be an old favourite if prefered.) I have attached a copy of an explanation text. (This is an extra and not expected but may keep them quiet on a cold, wet afternoon!)

First week back - Reading and SPAG test - if you have time look at the powerpoint on SPAG and have a go at a few of the tasks.

Sentence Writing Challenge -

If you scroll down you will find a list of the 100 most beautiful words in the English language. The challenge is this - can you write a sentence using one of the words or can your parents or older siblings do it?

Jigsaw - Discussion of power and bullying - Tableauxs of what the children thought power was.

Some great writing on Antarctica.

Some great writing on Antarctica. 1
It is a warm welcome to all Year 6parents and children. It is fantastic to be part of your school and the first weeks have been fantastic. I look forward to the upcoming terms and hope they will be memorable for you all.  Onwards and Upwards!! Here's to a fantastic Year 6!

Class Dojo

Thank you to all of our Year 6 parents who have signed up to our Class Dojo. It is an excellent way of sharing information about what we have been doing in class each week and as a means of communication with you all on an individual basis. We hope that you also find it useful to keep track of your child's learning attitudes and behaviours. It is wonderful to see that across Key Stage Two we are having so many interactions with parents through Dojo: we know how difficult it is to speak to working parents face-to-face each week. 

Welcome to Year 6 - Swordfish Class!

 

Do you have any ideas for this page? Let Mr Hatchard know!

 

Have you seen the Kids’ Zone? Play games and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourites.

Organisational matters

We have PE on Wednesday Mornings with Mr Hatchard and Thursday afternoons with Mrs Nwabueze and Mr Hatchard .

 

 

 

Homework

You can keep in touch with the homework tasks set via Class Dojo.

 

Homework will generally consist of a weekly maths task, which may be paper based or on the computer using ixl. Any additional practice that is made at home through ixl and Times Table Rock Stars will aid progress in this important year. It is essential that everyone knows their times tables facts (there is a link to an excellent website with multiplication games at the bottom of this page).

 

There will usually be an English task too, which will typically be a grammar activity, as well as spellings. It is important to spend a few minutes each day practising spellings as little and often is the best way to retain information. Of course, reading often and as much as possible is the key to success in English. The best readers generally have the best ideas for writing. Reading opens the mind to new wonders...
