Spellings- ‘Test 2’

Spellings are in a separate little wallet. Please keep these separate to your homework folder, as they do not need to be brought back into school until Friday and homework folders are handed on by Wednesday! You need as much practise as possible with your spellings, so keep hold of them until the day of the test!

No times table test next week but please do still keep practising them! I have been very impressed with the times tables scores to far!

Bedrock and IXL-please try and access as regularly as possible at home (two times a week would be preferable!)

Practise your times tables!! I will be giving the class 30 MIXED times tables questions next Friday. There are many FREE times tables apps you can get on tablets/ipads. ‘Hit the Button’ is a good website for quickfire times tables questions as well. Another way to practise is to get someone at home to give you a mock test and see how well you do!

Sumdog and Bedrock usernames and passwords have been sent home today. Please access these from home regularly…I can see in school how often each pupils is accessing it at home, and the progress that is being made. (Sumdog will be great to help revise for the times tables test as well!)

This week I have only set book homework.

Maths-pages 1 & 2 (‘number stuff’)

English-page 1 (nouns)

Please keep up with your reading over the weekend too!

AuthorCatherine Slater

Home reading-please keep up with regular home reading! I do please ask that reading records are signed by an adult at home, when they have read. We keep a record in school to see how regularly everyone is reading, and how many quizzes are being taken!

Book homework- I will send homework, from the Maths and English books , home on Fridays. This work is due back in on the following Wednesday.

Online programmes that can be accessed at home- In the coming weeks I will be sending home logins and passwords for Bedrock, IXL and Sumdog. All of these programmes can be accessed from home. This class had access to Bedrock and Sumdog in year 5 so will already know how these programmes work-they should access these regularly at home. We will be doing IXL in school as well, so they will soon become familiar with this programme too.

Spellings & Times tables - throughout year 6, we will have weekly spelling and/or times tables text. I will let the class know what they need to practise when I set the book homework on a Friday.

This week  are focusing on our English skills:

Punctuation Buster Book: page 12 to 15

English SAT book: pages 12 to 15

Spelling SAT book 2 page 2 to 5

Comprehension: Please complete the next story in your book.

Remember that if you have any problems please come and see me.

Remember to complete your Bedrock so that you have done a session before Wednesday.

As we are away at waterpark there will be no official homework set but the expectation that Bedrock, times tables and spelling practice continues.

I apologize for the technical issues surrounding IXL, we are aware of this and our doing our very best to resolve the situation.

Please remember to do your homework and bring it in on time!

Spelling list 5 for quiz on Wednesday.

GPS book- make sure that you are up to date and have completed all sections from page 2-15. this will be reviewed on Tuesday.

Maths sat buster book- choose 2 or 3 sections that you find challenging and practise your skills.

Bedrock- All children now have a new bedrock login as the company have a new site. We have logged in at school so the children know how to access the site and have checked that their logins work. It is extremely important that they complete 2 sessions at home for the programme to have a significant positive affect on improving their vocabulary. We complete a session on a Wednesday in school, so ideally a session on a Monday and Friday or Saturday would be advantageous. The site will not let you do consecutive sessions as they children need 48 hour to use the new vocabulary they have learnt. I am sent a report each week, so please use this site to improve your child’s vocabulary. We need to complete 3 sessions a week for maximum impact.

IXL- will be back on line soon.

Once again can I remind you that if you have internet issues at home the children can access the relevant websites during school hours. Also, if your child is struggling with any aspect of their homework please tell them to see me; I have lunch time drop in sessions.

Thank you for your support.
