Hi everyone and welcome to 6SK’s Class Blog.
We communicate a lot on our blog, share our learning, use it for reminders as well as setting extra challenges. Please feel free to comment or ask any questions and I’ll make sure I read them. I’m really looking forward to a successful year in 6SK!
The children have taken a thorough interest in our class novel – Born to Run by Michael Morpurgo. We have been working on our comprehension skills putting our knowledge of what we have read to the test, whilst also predicting outcomes and summarising events and feelings of characters.
Blog Challenge: Can you improve these ‘Sick’ Sentences?
The clouds were grey. They were in the sky. The ship was broken.
So far, we have studied both Place Value its relationship with rounding. Place Value knowledge is vital for us to fully understand rounding. We have all progressed in these areas and have been keen to impress… Why not try these questions below!
Finding this difficult? Don’t worry, use this video tutorial to refresh your memory on how to round numbers:
Well done to Hugh the Maths wizz who successfully topped the leader board in our recent Sumdog challenge! Keep up the great work everyone!
We have completed two lessons of our Autumn 1 hockey unit in PE. Children have already developed their skill level and are grasping the basics of the game. ‘King of the Ring’ seems to be a class favourite at the moment, and the ‘Drop Stick’ game!
RE / Values:
We spoke about ‘Belonging’ this week. We discussed different families/groups that we belong to and displayed them on a crest – these look awesome!
REVISION REVISION REVISION!
Revisiting the learning that we have carried out in school helps us remember and master what we know.. We can do this by: completing our home learning, using our school planners well, using programmes that school pays for (Lexia, Sumdog, Reading Eggs, First News etc) and by using books/revision guides.
I will be sending home pocket sized Maths and English revision guides, as well as CGP Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) home learning books.
Parents have asked in the past about revision guides. We highly recommend the school’s subscriptions: Lexia, Reading Eggs, First News and Sumdog. These are great fun whilst extremely effective in raising attainment.
Our class assembly is Wednesday 19th, at 09:00. Please join us from 08:40 for tea and coffee in the school cafe.
Thank you for your cooperation on Parent Pay so far for our two trips: Otley Chevin and Ilkley. If your child is eligible for free school meals, please select this option via Parent Pay if you require a packed lunch.
This Week’s Home Learning:
- New spellings
- Lexia (30 minutes)
- Sumdog Challenge (250 questions)
- Blog Activities (can be completed on paper or in the comments)
Thanks for a great week and have a good weekend,
