Year 6: What have we been up to?

Dancers: On Tuesday, children from Year 6 attended a dance festival. Boys and girls from 6SK and 6LM represented the school competing against others from across the Leeds area. The children did the school proud and managed to win ‘Best Teamwork’, as well as receiving some fantastic comments about their choreography. Everyone received a certificate for their achievements, well done everyone.

Hoodies:

Hoodies have now been ordered. We expect them to arrive during the Summer term. Many thanks for your orders.

Spellings: Well done to this week’s 10/10 spellers. Scores are in planners, along with the next set of spellings to learn. We have set 8 spellings to learn this week, many of which are based on the same spelling rule – so they shouldn’t be too tricky.

Home Learning: We have been very happy with the effort being put into revision both at school and at home. Because of this, we have not set SPaG or Maths home learning pages, but have asked children to work through them at their own speed. A ‘little and often’ approach to revision is usually the best way, although, we have advised children to relax and not to stress about the upcoming weeks.

See you back on Tuesday 7th May

PARENT MAIL:

Easter Service: We finished the week with a lovely Easter Service in the school hall. We sang songs, heard the Easter story as well as listening to some brilliant prayers.

Easter Home Learning: A big well done to the children that completed their ‘Secret Agent Training’ packs and handed them in on time, a really great effort!

Hoodies: We shall be ordering hoodies next week. If you have not ordered a hoody and would like one, please place your order on Parent Pay ASAP. There example hoodies in the year 6 block that your child can try on for size.

Practice SATs: On Monday, we began completing our final practice SATs week. Most children made progress, which is really great. There are still a few areas to scratch up on, so we have sent home a little extra home learning to help with this.

We are not in school on Monday 22nd April.

See you back on Tuesday 23rd April.

Home Learning:

Reading

This week we have started our new class novel, Skellig. Have a look at the first chapter. What are the inferences that you can draw from the chapter. Make some notes and then comment below. Think about the strategies that we have used to improve our first read.

My Mini Maths

Have a go at finding out the missing angles. Use the knowledge that you have about the internal angles in quadrilaterals and triangles. Then have a go at the back to basics. It is important that we are regularly practising the four operations so we remain confident with the methods, especially dividing by a two digit number.

Well done for your hard work this week.

22nd March

This week, we have been writing non-chronological reports about yellow-spotted lizards. We have used our class novel (Holes) to find out as much as we can and have drafted our points ready to edit next week. We have been working on ensuring that our writing is suitable for the genre and continued looking at making our writing more formal.

What is your favourite fact about yellow-spotted lizards? Comment below…

Home Learning

This week we have been focusing on the arithmetic questions that we have found the trickiest in class. Don’t forget to have a go at the extra ones that we have sent home and bring them in next week.

Have a go at these questions, they are all examples from past secret agent training. In this type of question you need to use your meta-learning skills and explain clearly how you know something. Always read your answer back and imagine you are someone else. Is your answer clear enough? Does it make sense? Does it answer the question?

I look forward to reading your comments!

  • Read the questions carefully.
  • Underline key words or information.
  • Notice parts of the question that you can make jottings about.

Do Not:

  • Panic.
  • Try to do everything in your head.
  • Rush.
  • Move on without checking.

Do:

  • Try your best.
  • Use what you have been taught.
  • Check your answers carefully.
Thank you for all of your hard work this week, it is great to witness lots of those lightbulb moments in class. Keep up the hard work!
Have a great half term,
Miss M 🙂

This week in 6LM: 

Adwaya has gone bananas!

Adwaya was so excited to show us his project today. He had used a banana and an orange along with his micro bit to create a musical instrument! He programmed his micro bit and set up the circuit so when the fruits were tapped, a sound was heard. I thought this was fantastic! Well done, Adwaya.
