Dear year 6,
As we enter another week, we would like to reflect on your great learning from last week! We have been really impressed with the mature attitudes and willingness of you all, to do your very best in class. You are definitely an excellent cohort to represent the school in your final year at St Cleer!
Last week we sent home quite a handful of homework - a reminder that it should be handed in by Wednesday please. The SPaG activities are topics we have covered in class during the week so you are being given the opportunity to consolidate your learning. Maths - read the questions carefully. Comprehension - remember your VIPERS skills.
Please continue to read and practise spellings as often as possible and to/with an adult when you can.
We began a new unit of Science last week - Light! You already have so much knowledge so we will continue to work together to ensure we cover elements you are interested in, as well as new areas so that knowledge knowledge is broadened.
We are about to leap into our new learning adventure topic, which is the Romans - we staff are all very excited to be teaching this, as it comes with so much History that can be adapted into art, music, geography and PE!!
This week, we will be assessing you with some further 'tests'. While we realise you can find these quite daunting, it is our aim to ensure that you feel comfortable and confident, before you are faced with bigger exams; progress through your lives.
* We will be having a 'Roman Day' (date to be confirmed but during the week commencing 5th October). Please think about what you may come dressed up as...... we already have our thinking caps on! We will enjoy a day of 'Roman themed' activities - more info to follow soon!!
* Please remember to come to school in PE kits on a Monday and Wednesday.
* Thank you so much for all of the cereal boxes - we now have enough! Could we please beg for large pieces of cardboard now?! As large as possible, so that we can make some 'good sized' Roman shields! Thank you!
Have a great week - we are looking forward to another constructive one; full of exciting learning opportunities.
Mrs Birch, Miss Kite, Mrs Tamblyn and Mrs Goldsmith :)
We have had a super week in 6K this week and the work produced has been excellent. Miss Kite and Mrs Goldsmith have been blown away with the contributions of you all in class and there were lots of raffle tickets given out!
A HUGE congratulations to our TTRS hall of fame this week. It is great to see you all spending so much time practising your times tables- it is a very important skill to have.
In Maths this week, we continued to look at place value including negative numbers and rounding numbers. Can you teach an adult at home our rounding rap? Mrs Spencer was really pleased with all of your reasoning and the excellent work in your books so far. Keep it up :)
In English, we have been developing our own stories based around 'The Hero's Journey' structure. We have developed our own plots and characters and Miss Kite is very much looking forward to reading your finished stories next week.
In our learning adventure, we have continued to look at the Mayflower and considered some reasons why people might have wanted to travel to America. What do you think the journey was like for those people 400 years ago?
Monday- Wild Tribe (Forest school)
Monday- Spellings (look at the spellings you set yourself to learn this week)
TTRS- Please try to log on each day play on Garage to track your progress and Studio to improve your rock status. Next week, we will be focusing on the 4 times tables in class.
Homework/reading diary- Please bring homework diary, reading diary and reading book to school each day. These should also go home with you each day so you can read and complete any homework tasks.
Science- Please continue to bring in cereal boxes for our Science lesson.
Roman Day- week beginning 5th October
There will be more information to follow, but we will be having a Roman dress up day in Year 6 on the week beginning 5th October. Have a think about what you might like to dress up as. We are also looking for some large pieces of cardboard for this day, so if you have anything suitable, please bring it in to school.
Have a fantastic weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
Miss Kite, Miss Birch, Mrs Goldsmith and Mrs Tamblyn
What a superb start to our first week back to school!
Miss Kite, Mrs Goldsmith, Mrs Birch and Mrs Tamblyn have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming you all back, and it has been great to see you reconnecting with your friends and peers.
It has been a busy week getting used to our new classrooms and the changes in the working environment, but we have been incredibly proud of how well you have settled back in.
In Maths this week, we began to revise Place Value and will continue with this over the next few weeks. During our English lessons, we wrote a story about a boat on a journey (you can watch the story again here if you like https://www.literacyshed.com/little-boat.html) and, after a class vote, began reading our new class novel- The boy at the back of the class.
Over the next few weeks, our Learning Adventure will focus on the Mayflower. Can you research any facts and share them with the class?
Some general reminders:
*Please remember to bring a water bottle each day to bring into class.
*Reading Records and books have been handed out this week. Please bring them to school each day, and record any home reading.
*Times Tables Rock Stars is already proving very popular. Try to log in for at least 3 minutes each day and play on 'Garage' or 'Studio'. Congratulations to everyone who made it onto our TTRS Hall of Fame this week!
*From Monday, Homework Diaries and Homework books will be going out. Please remember to check your homework diaries for your spellings and Times Tables each week.
*On Mondays, there will be Forest School. Please come to school in outdoor clothes, a long sleeved top, a waterproof coat and bring a change of shoes.
