Thursday 11th October, 2018

I had to post on our blog tonight as I’m very proud of all of your commitment to learning today. Our writing is coming along nicely in IPEELL – I can’t wait for you to start your Otley Chevin leaflets and brochures tomorrow! What’s more is, PE was great once again. Your hockey skills have developed so much. Miss Murphy was also very proud of you in RE. We are on 100% attendance this week so far, I wonder whether we’ll make it two weeks in a row?

Behaviour and alertness in class is getting better by the day; this made me think of one of my favourite people in education, Michael Rosen. Michael jokes about teachers in class and is famous for his performance poetry:

Michael LOVES to use repetition in his poems and is very animated, dramatic and enthusiastic. He is perhaps most famous for his ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’ performance. Maybe we’ll get to do some Michael Rosen inspired performance poems this year…

…Below is the home learning that is due in next Friday (not tomorrow).

Home Learning:SPaG:

We spoke about relative clauses and embedded clauses, as well as having a go at writing them. Here is some info that about them, which explains it very well:

Maths Arithmetic: Take your time with these – can you do the inverse to check them?Inference Task:

Here is a passage of text from Born to Run. What inferences can you infer? Comment below!

Some children have been doing Science experiments at home and sharing them with me – which I really appreciate. Miss Judge has recommended this exciting website for Science experiments:

  • Next week there are Parent Consultations.
  • The author Tom Palmer is visiting Tuesday!
  • Don’t forget PE Tuesday and Thursday.
  • We are having a Sumdog competition from Monday to Friday.

Thanks for all of your answers and comments on the class blog,

Mr Kay

  1. Hi Mr Kay, the maths answers are:

    7o: The missing number is 2,000
    7p: The missing number is 30,000
    8o: 69 x 6 = 414 – the inverse is 69 ÷ 6 = 11 and 3/6
    8p: 5 x 58 = 290 – the inverse is 5 ÷ 58 = 11 and 3/5

  2. 7o) 5,042,000 = 5,000,000 + 40,000 + 2,000
    7p) 100,000 + 30,000 + 20 = 130,020

    8o) 69 (times) 9 = 414 the inverse is 414 (divide) 9 = 69
    8p) 58 (times) 5 = 290 the inverse is 290 (divide) 5 = 58

  3. Ha ha ha, I remember when you use to read born to run to us in year 5! I loved that book! It’s really nice to see you still teaching in year 6 and I hope your enjoying your new class ! Hope you don’t niss us that much 🙂
