Weekly Update – 15.03.2019

We’ve had a fantastic Fit Friday today! The children took part in a variety of activities all led by sports leaders from KEGS and despite the weather, the children thoroughly enjoyed their morning!

In English this week, we have read more from our current narrative, ‘Fuzzy Mud’. The children have also started to consider what they think might happen next in the story; they will be writing a plan for this, so that they can write their very own ‘next chapter’ which could follow on from where we have read up to so far. We are looking forward to reading these as what we have heard so far is very captivating!

This week the children finished their ‘Day of the Dead’ inspired skulls and made some origami butterflies to accompany them on display: please do come in and see some of the drawings which have been put on display in the USK2 corridor!

To aid with revision, children have been planning and preparing a quiz to recap prior learning through the use of the computing software, Scratch. From this they have been required to produce a script which enables ‘sprites’ to ask, and provide answers to, questions which they have programmed into their quiz. They have all made a good start with their quiz, with many pairs having focussed on Times Tables.

The homework for this week is:

Reading: Non- Fiction: pgs 22-31 Due: Thurs 21st
Maths: Target Practice Book: pgs 24-31 Due: Tues 19th

As mentioned last week, please encourage your children to speak to either Miss Woods or Mr Crew if they are finding any of the homework difficult before it is due, so that it can be discussed and any misconceptions hopefully rectified: we are always happy to arrange time to sit with them to help with this.
Although we would like the children to attempt the homework themselves, we are more than happy for you as parents to assist them in their understanding.

Have a relaxing weekend,

The Year 6 Team
