Hello Year 6 Pupils, Parents and Carers!
What a great start Year 6 have made to their final year. The Y6 team would like to wish them a restful and happy half-term!
We have sent home a chapter of a book we would like pupils to read from the story of The Nowhere Emporium. See the Homework section for more detail.
HOME LEARNING SUPPORT:
We are adding extra home learning content to our class web pages to support families whose children may be unable to attend school.
These activities are only meant only for those pupils and for term time only - they are not additional homework.
For Week Commencing 2nd November:
Please make sure you still do your reading for the Three Reads competition.
Here's how it works in Year 6:
- Read on three separate days & record this in your Reading Record each time, followed by an adult signature
- Read at least 10 pages in each session
- Return your journal on Friday so we can check - no journal = no reads!
Successful readers earn an extra break. If the whole class completes 3 reads, we earn 30 Owl Points!
Over Half Term: Please read the opening extract of the Nowhere Emporium.
We have sent a printed copy home but you can also click the cover below
to read the extract online.
We are looking at different types of homophone - words which sound the same, but have a different meaning and a different spelling. In our spelling test this week, we will have a dictation to write out. You will have to pick the correct homophone, based on the context of the sentence. You will have to decide which / witch word to write!
Go to MathsWatch / My Work to find your activities.
We are finishing our topic on division and number facts this coming week.
Get ahead in English:
We will be writing a magical time-travel adventure over the coming weeks in three chapters. Can you write some practice sentences, ready for your story?
