Welcome to Year 6’s Class Page
Weekly Newsletter for 6P and 6LS
Week commencing 8th October 2018
This week the children made gas mask boxes. They showed real teamwork, helping each other to wrap the boxes in brown paper.
We have been continuing our unit on short stories and the children have created actions to help them re-tell the story of Eric. We have also been learning about modal verbs and researching words with the letter string ‘ough’.
To help your children at home, we ask that you read with them and record this in their reading journals. This is so important in developing their vocabulary and understanding of different texts.
In Maths we have been focussing on division. The children were using factors to help them divide. We have now moved on to long division where the children are learning how to divide by 2 digit numbers.
As always, times table practice at home is hugely valuable and we ask that you spend some time over the weekend, practising these skills with your child.
The children have been learning about famous scientists, particularly those made famous by their involvement in Electrical research and development.
On Monday, the children were set the task of learning a poem by heart, ready to perform it next week. The children can choose a poem based on Autumn, WW2 or their class value (6P- Liberty and 6LS- Democracy).
Please note that home learning is set on a Monday and is expected to be returned the following Monday at the latest unless stated otherwise.
