Congratulations to our two well-deserving Pupils of the Week – Dan Rowley and Austin Taylor.
This week we have been learning about decimal numbers – the decimal song on YouTube was a big hit!
Here are some of the more difficult questions from this week to practise at home –
1. Write down the number 3.86. Add 1/10 to it.
Add 11 tenths to your new number.
Add 9 hundredths to your new number.
2. Write down the number 5.82. Add 1/10 to it.
Add 11 hundredths to your new number.
Add 9 thousandths to your new number.
The password for entering the class next week in the mornings will either be the answer for 9 x 8, 8 x 9, 8 x 7, 7 x 8, 7 x 6, 6 x 7.
If you are currently working on the Level 4 Clic Test and you would like to improve your score, I have attached a booklet to help with each area of Maths covered and a Level 4 Clic test.
In English, we have been writing complex sentences – using embedded clauses, openers, adjectives, and adverbs. I am very impressed with your sentences using our ‘Words of the Week’ - hostile and calamitous (calamity).
You have worked hard this week during Wellbeing sessions - considering what makes you happy and how you can try to make others happy. Next week our value of the week is showing kindness to others – try to get your name on our new ‘values’ tree! You have all been very sensible during our Mindfulness Meditation sessions following lunchtime – thank you!
Our fun sports session will be held on Tuesday and you can wear your own sports clothes to school.
Have a lovely weekend, I hear there are some lovely trips planned.
See you all Monday.
Class 6 Homework (Wb 07/09/20)
Autumn Term Project.
As we look forward to celebrating Black History Month this October, I would like you to complete a short research project to present to the class. Once you have completed your project, practise presenting it to family in order to deliver it confidently to the class. Please complete this using the software provided through HWB as we can access these easily in school. This week, you have all successfully logged onto HWB and should have taken home your user name and password.
This week we have been revising Place Value. Everyone has worked so hard – well done! The area that proved a little trickier for some is - counting forwards and backwards in 10, 100, 1,000. For example:
A thorough knowledge of multiplication facts is essential to confidently access all areas of Mathematics, so please could you continue to practise these regularly. The password for entering the class next week in the mornings will either be the answer for 6 x 6,
7 x 7, 8 x 8 or 9 x 9.
In English we have been improving openers (fronted adverbials). Can you remember some of the different ways of starting sentences?
If you are currently working on the Level 3 Clic Test and you would like to improve your score, I have attached a booklet to help with each area of Maths covered. I have also attached a Level 3 Clic Test and an example of the Big Maths Beat That Test to practise at home. Next week, I will attach some support for the Level 4 Clic Test.
You have all settled in brilliantly; I am particularly impressed that you all try your best. A great start to Year 6! Have a lovely weekend.
Diolch yn fawr iawn,
I hope that you have enjoyed your first few days in Year 6. There are twenty-four pupils in Class 6 this year as we welcome a new pupil to the class. It is wonderful to see your enthusiasm to face the excitement and challenges of your last year of Primary School. There are high expectations of all pupils in Year 6 and you are expected to set a good example to others at all times.
You are all starting to adapt to the new routines and the new ‘normal’ within the school – well done! We all remain positive to return to more collaborative and creative learning before the end of the school year.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.
