Well done, everyone. You've successfully reached the end of your first half term in Year 6 - and what a busy few weeks it has been!
After all your hard work, your trenches are looking fantastic! You worked so well together to get these completed. I'm also looking forward to reading your final WW1 stories.
I hope you all enjoyed your well-deserved 'Free Day' today.
Enjoy your half term break, but please make time for some daily reading - it really is so important.
See you on the 2nd November, ready for Bikeability and some Forest School sessions.
You will be pleased to hear that your homework for next week is to read! Please aim to read every day, for a minimum of 15 minutes, and record it on your reading record.
Enjoy your well deserved break over half term - you have all work incredibly hard over the past few weeks.
Please continue with your 15 minutes of daily reading.
Please complete questions 1, 2 and 3 of the Four Operations booklet. If you finish and would like a further task, you can write your own word problems for the calculations used in question 1.
Four Operations booklet
Please complete the subjunctive form activity. If you would like to check your answers when you've finished, they can be found on the last page. There is also a quiz that you can have a go at if you'd like to. If you do, record your score in your homework book.
Subjunctive Form Quiz
If you have accounts for either of these, please complete regular activities on these programmes rather than the Maths and English tasks set above.
All parents should have received an email about Bikeability which will take place from Monday 2nd November. If this email has not come through, please let me know as soon as possible.
Well done to all of you this week. You've worked really hard on improving your understanding of written multiplication and the subjunctive form. Maybe you could impress your family members by speaking in the subjunctive form? Be prepared though, you may get some funny looks!
You also all worked brilliant when investigating light and reflection. It would be great if you could explain to your parents (or other family members) what the angles of incidence and reflection are. Try using the diagram below to help you.
We'll be continuing with our trench models next week, so if you have any old newspapers at home, please bring them in for paper mache.
Well done to those of you who have managed to complete your homework already. If you still need to bring it in, don't forget it on Monday, please.
Have a lovely weekend!
Please continue to read for a minimum of 15 minutes every day. Don't forget to record your reading in the table you were given.
Click on the link below. I would like you to use the webs to revise the multiplication facts you find most challenging and still need to practise. You can draw the webs out in your homework books and use the sentence starters modelled on the sheet.
If you finish these quickly, or would like more practise, you can use the websites below.
Click on the link below to revise using commas correctly to add clarity to sentences.
Commas for clarity
If you have IDL or Nessy accounts, then please use these before completing any other homework. Remember, you should only spend a maximum of 45 minutes on your homework (not including reading time).
Please come and see me if there is anything you don't understand.
You have all worked brilliantly this week. I was particularly proud of all your efforts during the Quadkids event. You were all so great at encouraging each other and showing good sportsmanship. There were some fantastic throws and jumps; the best moment had to be watching you complete the final long-distance run. You all pushed yourselves and should be incredibly proud of all your efforts.
With the colder weather coming in, please make sure you bring a coat and have your full PE kit in school (you may bring in a dark-coloured sweatshirt if you'd like to) so you can change back into warm, dry uniform on the odd occasion that we may get caught out by the rain.
A quick reminder, please don't forget your homework on Monday.
Have a lovely weekend!
