Where children shoot for the stars and shine

Year 6

Last day of isolation! smiley

Hi parents/Carers,
Thank you so much for all the support you have given the children during this last week. It isn't ideal learning at home but I can honestly say that you have done your best to keep up with your lessons.
It has been so lovely to keep in touch via Zoom and I feel this is an invaluable way of Mrs Daren and myself being able to teach the children. I know a few of you don't feel confident using Zoom or have problems accessing it so I have attached some instructions which I hope will help you if we need to use it again ( I hope not!)
Don't forget we are back in school tomorrow and you need to bring your work. Looking forward to seeing you all. As far as I know it will be PE tomorrow so please come in your PE kits.

Friday 6th November

Well we have got to the end of another busy week. The children have settled well back into school and I am very impressed with some of the work they have been doing this week. They have been learning written methods for long division in maths and have produced some super writing too. Some children who have achieved the highest dojo points were picked to  carve a pumpkin which we will be using to set the scene for the reading of our tales of fear. 

The homework this weekend is on the theme of remembrance day which comes next week. There are three different sheets and the answers are on the link too. Your child will bring home the sheet most appropriate to them. 

Spellings are also here for next week. These are words from the Year 5 and 6 list that the children need to learn. Keep up your reading on Bug Club children; I have added some new books and don't forget about TT Rockstars too!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

I am so sorry I haven't been able to be in school this week. It has been very frustrating to have to isolate but this is the way of life at the moment. 

I have still been following what you have been up to and I am sure you have tried hard for the other adults. I loved teaching you via Zoom on Wednesday and look forward to teaching you again on Friday. 

Your homework is math's based but on a Halloween theme. It involves you working out some calculations to solve the clues. There is an easier sheet if want to do that one instead. 

Most importantly, I hope you all have a lovely half term. I know you may not be able to do what you would like to but I hope you still manage to have some fun.

Keep safe everyone and I'll look forward to seeing you all soon.

Love Ms Randle

Half-term Halloween Homework 23.10.20

Some parents have asked about recommended books for Year 6 so I have added some photos here of books I know this age group enjoy. There are lots of others too but here is just a small selection.

Happy Reading!

Hi everyone. This week we are revising multiplying by 10,100 and 1000 as some of the children are still struggling with this. I have gone through their homework with them and they know which sheet they need to do. If you need to look at the answers they are attached also!

The children have been fantastic this week and it's been a pleasure working with them. 

Have a great weekend,

Ms Randle

This weekend I would like you to read chapters 1 and 2 of The Eleventh Hour on Bug Club. There will be some dojo points awarded for this!

Spellings for week beginning 28.9.20

25th September

Hi children, parents and carers. Well we have got to the end of another very hectic week. I am so impressed with the behaviour of all the children and their attitude towards their learning. They are a credit to you all. 

I am adding their homework just in case they lose the copy I give them. It is some literacy work based around a picture. The children will be told which bit they need to do. 

Thank you for all your support. It is a difficult and worrying time for us all but the children are coping amazingly and they really do cheer us up every day. 

18.9.20

Well we have completed two weeks now back at school. This week the children have got back to the routine of lessons. They have worked extremely hard and are already starting to catch up and remember some of the things that they had forgotten!

This week we have been revising decimals and fractions so I am setting some decimal subtraction homework. Your child will bring the sheet home but I will upload it here just in case. There are different levels of this activity but your child will know which one they should do. The answers are also on here if you want to check their work!

Pictures from this week

11.9.20

Well it has been a fabulous first week back. I must say, I've been so impressed with how well the children have settled in and adapted to the slightly new way things are in school. Thank you to all parents and carers for all your support and for preparing the children so well for their return. 

Next week we are going to create a time capsule to bury in the school garden to be opened in the future. I thought it would be a great way for the children to think about how life has been for them over the past months and record it in some way. For their homework this weekend, the children will be asking if they can interview an adult whom they live with to collect their thoughts on life during Covid 19. They all have the sheet to record their ideas on. I will attach the booklet that they will be filling in so you can see what other things they will record next week. If any of them has photos of things they during during lock-down and they would like to include them, please send them in to school. 

Thank you and have a lovely weekend.

Ms Randle

Hello Year 6! 

YES, you are Year 6 now!

Hope you are all well and ready to return to school. I am so excited to see you all next week. I have been in school getting our classroom ready and have got all your new books and pencil cases ready for you. I thought you might like to see some photos of how the classroom looks and a picture of all the adults working in our class, just in case you've forgotten us all!

See you Monday,

Ms Randle x

Back to school!
