What fantastic start to life in Year 6. I am delighted with how the children have settled in lessons and are taking part in all lessons.
This week we learnt about the Battle of Britain and have started to learn about what life during the Blitz was like.
We have also started to learn about the circulatory system and will continue to do so over the coming the weeks.
Another brilliant week of learning in Year 6. I have been particularly impressed with the way the children have worked in maths to solve tricky place value, addition and subtraction using a bar model.
What a start to the month of October. First of all I would just like to say how impressed I was with all of the children during our residential trip. They were a real credit to their families and I am sure they have made memories for life. I was also delighted with the work which the children who were unable to attend Stubbers produced. The electric cars, art and PowerPoint presentations were all excellent pieces of work.
The children have once again been superb. We have started to write a letter as if we were an evacuated child in preparation for our exciting evacuation night as well as worked hard to improve our visual understanding of multiplying and how to use the bar model to help explain what happens when we multiply.
We have also spoke about sharing personal information on the internet and what information is safe to share as well as what information should not be shared.
The children have also started using SatsCompanion website. This website has questions which covers all ares of maths, spelling, punctuation, punctuation and some reading quizzes for the children to take.
Homework this week
Maths: The arithmetic paper which should be in their bag will need to be completed over the coming week
We have worked this week on ordering and comparing fractions so please help the children with adding and subtracting fractions as it will put them in good stead for next week..
. I have put a link to some YouTube videos below so that the children have a step by step guide for the questions they have got wrong. The video number will relate to the question they need to work on.
Reading: Read chapter 8 of War Horse. It would also be helpful if the children found out the meaning to any tricky words that they don't know the meaning to because this will help to prepare them for the week's learning in class.
Topic: To watch the David Attenborough - Seven Worlds: One Planet documentary which is on Sunday night at 6:20 on BBC1. It is about South America and the species found there. As South America will play an important part of this half term's topic it would be advantageous for them to watch it.
