Updated for A2 WK1
What a brilliant first half term!
Year 6 superstar learners have started the year with enthusiasm and a real drive to learn!. We have been experiencing life as a Mayan and learning all about this ancient civilisation, reviewing place values and the four number operations, having fun with forces in Science and foraging for seeds in the woods. We have been writing like proper authors, thinking about our audience and aiming to entertain and enthrall. We have also built survival shelters, made fire and toasted marshmallows! It's been brilliant!
The Year 6 team is so proud of the pupils and we hope they will enjoy the Hallowe'en Half Term.
There is a little bit of reading to do over half term. We are sending home the first Chapter of our next book: Kensuke's Kingdom. If pupils read it and complete the short activity at the end, they will earn ALL THREE READS in one go! What a bargain!
Please see the Information section below to find out about our timetable for Autumn 2. We have also updated our home learning section with links to the learning over the coming half term.
Reading and Spelling homework runs from Monday to Friday.
Here are the spellings for A2 Wk1 for our return to school on 1.11.21
📚 READING: One read is 15 minutes of sustained reading. Please complete at least 3 reads per week and keep notes in your Reading Record. If you read the first chapter of Kensuke's Kingdom, sent home on the final week of A1, it will count as your three reads for A2 WK1! We count reads every Friday in competition with all of the other classes in school. WE AIM TO WIN!
