Over the holidays there will no extra homework set so keep up with your CGP and online homework. The week we come back we will be having assessments so, look over the past papers we did and try to do a bit of revision. Look at methods in arithmetic and word problems in reasoning. I have loaded onto MyMaths some practise questions for you. WHSmiths also do a good range of support books if you wanted to do anything extra over the holidays. Have a good rest!
This term our main topic is Vikings. We will be visiting Layer Marney Tower next Tuesday to find out some very exciting information.
have a look at the following links for more information...
In Science we are exploring the concept of Evolution and Inheritance. For next weeks lesson could you all please bring in some photos of your family. We are going to be looking at inherited characteristics so pictures of blood relatives such as mum, dad, grandparents. If these are precious photos please bring in copies rather than originals as we will be using them for quite a long time in class.
A Happy New Year to you all. Thank you very much for the generous gifts you gave myself, Mrs Huggett and Mrs Hatiris for Christmas. Please remember that children will need a tracksuit this term for PE as the lweather gets colder the class will go on. Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow... don’t forget your Viking homework!
Monday is our class Christmas party. Please could each child bring a small amount of party food for us to share. We are splitting it as:
Armstrong and Marconi please bring something savoury.
Scott and Churchill please bring something sweet.
As always, no nuts please.
Children can also bring a change of clothes for the afternoon.
WALK TO THE FEN
We do not need anymore helpers, thank you to all that offered. Unless we contacted you please assume that you are not needed!
Don't forget the trip to The Globe tomorrow. We are leaving at 9:00 and should be home by 4:30. Don't forget your packed lunch!
Please double check your appointment time and date. As there is more than one date, it can be an easy thing to mistake one day for another. I am fully booked for Thursday so if you are not able to make your appointment please cancel it so it can be released for someone else.
Over the half term, have a go at some coding using the hour of code that we have been doing in class.
google 'hour of code.' choose from beginner or moderate depending on how confident you feel.
Thank you for your patience with the online booking today, we think everything is now working fine.
It is recommended that your child accompanies you to this appointment as it is useful for them to be part of the conversation! It is about them after all.
Look forward to seeing you next week.
You will soon be able to book an appointment to discuss how well your child has settled into year six. Please be aware that I will be offering appointments on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of the week beginning the 16th October. Currently the online booking system is only showing Thursday but this will be updated. At this meeting, due to it being so new into the term, we will not be looking at work but will be discussing strengths and areas to develop as the year progresses. Please be aware that these are only ten minute slots and should you feel you need longer, I would be happy to see you on an alternative day.
I look forward to seeing you all soon,
*** help needed!***
We have been invited to WDF school on Thursday afternoon for a Science show. This has all been quite last minute but we are very excited about going. We do however need a couple of parents to walk down and back with us. We will leave school at 1pm and return for the end of the school day. If you would like to come with us, please let me know by Tuesday at the latest.
It was lovely to see so many of you this morning for our Meet the Teacher meeting. I have attached the letter as a word document at the bottom of this page in case you didn't receive one. As mentioned by a parent this morning, if your child enjoys Coding, the Library offer a coding club on a Thursday after school. We welcome any information on clubs or other activities the children do that may interest the rest of the class!
Welcome back to year 6!
I hope you have had a wonderful summer and are excited about the new term. We have some excellent topics to learn about and I have been busy preparing lots of fun and interesting things for us to do.
Don't forget for the first day back...
I'm looking forward to seeing you all again,
Each week I will be posting homework onto your MyMaths site and First News iHub for you to complete. The tasks will be linked to work we have been doing in class so you should have no problems completing them. I will be looking to see who is having a go at these so please see me if you are stuck!
Please keep learning your spelling and times tables as well as those tricky division facts. For a challenge try learning decimal multiplications and see if you can see any patterns.
