Year 5 & 6 pupils have Sports Day which clashes with the PTFA non-uniform day and collection for the Bottle Tombola.
Year 5 & 6 children may wear sports clothes of their choice on Friday 7th July.
Please remind your child that they should be marking their home learning in their maths and grammar books each week. We are finding that an increasing number of children are not doing this..
Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise. We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:
Purple home learning books will no longer being used as practice can be done at home. You will be able to see achievement and progress through the dictation and times tables challenge sheets going home weekly. You will also be able to witness progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home once during every half-term.
This week we would like your child to practice reading and spelling words that are homophones
Our words of the week are:
Guarantee, pronunciation, partial
Maths pages: 46 and 47
Grammar pages:58 and 59
The creative home learning for this half term is based around our new learning challenge topic were the Anglo Saxons really smashing?
Children have been writing a set of instructions on how to kill a mythical creature. They have also learnt some grammar skills which can help improve their instructions as well creating their own rubric to help with their first drafts
This week in Maths, we have been working on imperial measurements. Children have had some background information on imperial measurements and where they are used in todays society. Also, they have had a chance to apply their skills in word problems.
Next week in English, we will finishing our set of instructions to kill a mythical creature as well as being introduced to a new book "Monsterology". Children will have an opportunity to look at the book in their GR sessions so they have a close look at all of the intricate details.
Next week in Maths, we will be preparing the children for their last progress test in year 5. We will be recapping skills that we have covered throughout the year.
The FLCC topic for this half term is 'Were the Anglo Saxons really smashing?'
