Home Learning - Hawks

This week's Home Learning:

New home learning set  Thursday 29th November

As we have been learning about fractions, decimals and percentages over the last few weeks, we would like you to invent a game to help others practise a concept/ skill we have covered. You could be matching common equivalents, adding or subtracting like or unlike fractions, multiplying or dividing fractions or even ordering them. You can do any sort of game such as a card or board game. We will play these together in school. 

Work is due in on Monday 10th December.

Great Remembrance work- even some delicious and beautifully uniform poppy biscuits.

This week we have been working on words which contain the strings tract, port, struct. The pupils have selected 10 of these for their own personal spellings. Please help your child to learn their list ready for a test in school on Friday 14th December.

Reading: In school we regularly talk to your child about their reading and monitor their engagement using our AR system which helps us to ensure that your children are reading regularly at home as well as at school. Please help your child by encouraging them to read quality books and by making time to discuss any unfamiliar words they come across with you. 

Mathletics: Studies have consistently  proved that children who engage regularly with Mathletics do significantly better in their assessments so please take advantage of this wonderful tool. If you encourage your child to complete more tasks and they gain a certificate these will be awarded in our Key Stage Assembly on Thursdays.

New tasks are set weekly so always log on and check you account.

Please note that where pupils have received a low score the task may be reset so that learning may be consolidated. If you have found a task difficult please ask in school for assistance.

Times Table Challenge:

A confident and fast recall of all times table facts up to and including 12 X 12 will help your child immensely this year and in the future. Year 6 have taken home a new times table challenge sheet this week which they will be tested in next Friday. Each wekk there will be a new X table focus. This week they are working on applying their 6 X table knowledge.
