Year 6 Homework

The children are continuing to work hard to wards their SATs this May. Could I encourage them to talk through their homework with you and for you to check it with them after they have finished. The children are also making errors with accuracy. Some of the questions involving line graphs had errors that could have been avoided it the children completed the task with a ruler and sat at a table.

I have attached a PDF of the presentation I gave to parents this week. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions linked to it.

SATs Presentation for Parents 2020

Spellings for this week are from the Year 3/4 spelling list

accident, actually, breathe, build, business, centre, continue, consider, experience, extreme, forwards, grammar, material, medicine, naughty, occasionally, opposite, preference, regular, strength

Year 6 Homework

Homework this week will continue with maths and reading practise. The children have also been given the two spelling lists that they should all know by the end of year 6. All the spelling patterns and words have been taught over the past four years. As the children are finding this quite daunting, I have selected twenty for them to concentrate on.

A number of children are rushing through their reading comprehension papers and are making significant errors. Please encourage your child to talk to you about their answers once they have completed their questions so that you can go over any areas  they have had difficulty with.

On Wednesday 12th February at 2:30 I will be holding a meeting for parents to pass on information about Sats. I hope to see you there.

Year 6 Homework

The children in Year 6 have been working hard in preparation for their Sats in May. The homework they have been, and will be, receiving will support them in achieving their full potential. Please encourage your child to complete their homework to the best of their ability and with the same level of effort that they would complete class work. If children are unsure of  a word or technical term, please support them to look it up.

Spellings will now be selected from the year 3/4 and year 5/6 spelling lists. Children were given the latter on Friday and will receive the former this week.

Thanks for your continued support in your child’s education.

Year 6 homework

The children have all settled back into the flow of things after the Christmas break.

As we lead into the Key Stage 2 Sats you will have noticed that the children are having segments of past papers for homework practise. If your child is unsure of any of the terminology used in a question, please let them look that up on the internet rather than avoiding the question altogether. If they are still finding if tricky, I am running a homework club at 12:30 on a Wednesday lunchtime.

A number of children are diving into problems and solving part of it without actually reading the full question. If you could encourage your child to read the whole question and then check to see if they have actually answered it, this will be hugely beneficial.

With reading papers, a number of the children are finding it difficult to read the text and answer the questions in the allotted time. Each short paper has a maximum of 20 minutes allocated for reading it and answering the questions.Please encourage your child to work at pace and complete the reading task in 20 minutes.

Last week’s spellings will be continues into this week.

Bonuses, addresses, boxes, matches, peaches, parties, trousers, opportunities, dictionaries, sketches, salmon, suffixes, compasses, spies, glasses, deer, crutches

I will be holding a parents’ evening before half term on Wednesday 12th February at 14:30 to explain about the Sats. I hope to see you there.

Year 6 homework

The children in Year 6 continue to work through a selection of maths, reading comprehension and spelling, punctuation and grammar exercises.

This week the spellings are sh words spelled si or ssi. These include:

tension, permission, admission, profession, possession, revision, discussion, collision

Please encourage your child to read with you and ask them questions related to the text. I have noticed that a majority of the children are fluent readers but don’t understand a lot of the vocabulary. any help you can give them on this would be appreciated.

Year 6 Homework and spellings

This week our spellings focus on the sh sound spelt ti or ci. These will include words such as; international, rejuvenation, ancient, misrepresentation.

The children also have a piece of grammar work and maths sheet to complete.

Please encourage your child to complete their homework to the best of their abilities. Should they find elements of it too tricky, please encourage them to try and complete it and I will work with them to complete the rest.

The maths homework if linked to multiplying money.

Spellings this week include –

forgetting, forgotten, beginner, beginning, admittance, preferred, strumming, dropped, stopped, wettest, runny, sadder, admitted

Year 6 Homework and spellings

This week the children will be looking at double negatives. If they aren’t sure what this means there is a detailed explanation at the top of their sheets.

We have recently been working on negative numbers. Too help the children with this, I would like them attempt the temperature change chart, plot the information on the graph and complete the associated questions.

The spelling focus this week continues to look at suffixes and, in particular, -less, -ful, –ness, -ment and -ly

We will be looking at a number of spellings including the words:

beautiful, deceitful, meanness, achievement, definitely, thoroughly, merriment, hopeful, flavourless, thoroughness, immediately and other words that follow thew same pattern.

Children will need to learn the process for adding the suffix and how to apply it correctly as they will be given 10 spellings out of a much larger list.

Please remember that on Tuesday the children are going to Pizza Express in Shrewsbury and will not need a dinner on that day.

On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday the children will be working on their cycling skills. Whilst the people running it may have some spare bikes and helmets they can lend to children, it would be good if they could bring their own.

 

Thank you

Year 6 Homework

This week’s homework involves a few fractions questions, some speech punctuation and the weekly spellings.

A reminder that children should make a good effort to try their homework without support. I’ve noticed that some children have found it difficult to understand the homework because they haven’t read the question carefully. Reading comprehension forms an important part of the curriculum and covers just about every lesson. If children read daily they tend to find it easier to read and understand the questions.

Thank you

Mr Chiverton

Year 6 Homework and Residential Meeting

The children have been issued with their homework for this week.It includes a short grammar task, a maths exercise and a few spellings.

In the front of your child’s homework book should be a list of spellings that they should ideally know. We will be working on these throughout the year but would appreciate any time you can practise with them.

This Wednesday – September 18th -we have a meeting about the residential the children will be going on in November. If you would like to attend to find out more information or to ask any questions then please make your way to Class 6 for 3:20.
