World Mental Health Day 2019
Today, we wore yellow to support the charity 'young minds'. We brought in yellow items to dress the teachers in.
Are modern day punishments too harsh?
We have been busy learning about the Roman, Anglo Saxon/Viking and Tudor crime and punishments. Today we used our classroom timeline to write our opinions about crime and punishment in these time periods. We also compared them and related them back to the modern day. We are very much enjoying finding similarities and differences between the crimes and punishments.
Year 6 homework timetable
Thursday- Monday: Grammar and spelling homework
The grammar homework will be introduced on a Tuesday/Thursday morning. Grammar homework will be sent home in a spelling/grammar folder. Spellings will be given on the same day as the grammar homework and in the same folder. Occasional extension tasks may be included with the spelling homework. The spelling test will be on the back of their spelling homework so there is a record of how they scored on the test for you to see at home. Spellings set are to be revised each day – please help by testing your child at least twice during the week.
Please make sure the spelling/grammar folder is in school on a Monday.
Monday-Thursday: Maths homework
Maths homework will consolidate the learning from the previous week. If your child finds this difficult, please encourage them to speak to me about it so we can go over it in assembly time on Monday.
Please make sure the maths homework folder is in school on a Thursday.
Friday-Friday: Mathletics homework
A topic homework grid will be sent home at the start of every half term (in the back of the grammar/spelling homework folder). Your child should complete at least three of the activities on the sheet by the end of the half term.
In addition, please encourage your child to read every day and ask them questions about the text. Reading comprehension homework will start in October.
