Year 6

Week Beginning 23.11.20

Another great week jam packed full of fantastic learning, well done to everyone!
English and Maths:
This week in English, we will continue to focus on poetry.  We will be contextualising this through remembrance poems, which we will plan, write, edit and then perform.
After completing our unit on the four operations, this week we will move onto fractions.  This will involve equivalences, simplifying and mixed number fractions.  The children will also look at understanding reasoning and problem solving tasks related to this.  We have also set MyMaths learning related to our number work from the week just gone.  In your MyMaths account, you will find some homework has been set to consolidate the learning from this week. This should be completed by the due date given.  This week’s focus: Squred and cubed numbers, along with multiplying triple digits.
Remote learning:
You should have all received instructions about how to access remote learning in the case of needing to self-isolate.  This is accessed through the ‘assignments’ section on Microsoft Teams.
This will take you to a word document showing all the learning for the week and links to files that include all of the resources for the lesson. We know that we have a lot of resources at school that you may not have at home, so know understand if  you cannot complete the lesson exactly like it is described in the plan. Feel free to be creative with how you complete the work.
Please ask either of us if you would like any extra information or help.
Other curriculum news:
In Design and Technology we will look at how specific moments in time have inspired certain inventions and analyse what we think are the most important.
In our Work Hard Wednesday session, we will be assess everything we have learnt in our four operations Maths unit and determine individual targets to help us improve.
Our History lessons will focus on the Blitz.
Important information:
PE will be every other Tuesday (Next one will be 1st December)
Have a lovely weekend,
Mr Slattery and Miss Martin
