HOMEWORK - Friday 9th November 2018

Spelling

The children are going to continue working through their Year 5 and 6 Statutory Spellings. The full list of words is on the document above and the children should've brought a list home before PGL week. 

We're asking the children to choose 10 to 15 spellings a week on which they can work. The order doesn't matter. It makes sense, however, that they focus on the spellings they find most challenging. We will test ten spellings each week, but this is a far less formal process than it sounds because all of the children will be working on different words. It's about highlighting the spellings on which the children need to concentrate.

Spelling Shed also has the Year 5 and 6 word list and the children will be able to practise as much as they like.

ENGLISH - pages 8, 9 and 10

Homework 19/10/18

This week we have only set the children some spelling homework to keep them busy over half term.

Each child has been given a list of Year 5 and 6 National Curriculum Statutory Spellings - all very official. We asked them to choose between 15 and 20 spellings that they knew would need learning. Obviously many of the children would have chosen more if they could, but they need to work in more manageable chunks.

Spelling Shed has some games linked to the statutory spellings and attached is a document with a list of ideas to support the children in their learning.

After half term, these spellings will become focus the of our Friday spelling tests and dictations.

 

PGL - final reminders

We've covered a lot of this with the children today, so hopefully they're feeling quite well informed.

  • The children will need to arrive at school for the usual time
  • They will not need to be in uniform, just sensible PGL activity clothes
  • Medicines and money (£5) will be kept in the children's bags until their group leaders collect them after registration 
  • The Year 6 team will be available to receive any more complex medicine instructions if you feel it's required
  • Suitcases and bags will be placed in the children's class rooms
  • A kit list is attached to the top of this page; Mr Simmonds text a link to its location a few weeks ago, but some of the children have been asking; it's likely you've already seen it
  • Please pay attention to what the children are not allowed to bring, particularly the aerosols - the fire alarms are extremely sensitive
  • If you have a dinner booked for Monday, the children will be able to have that, otherwise they will need a packed lunch
  • We will start leaving school from about 1.00pm to set off from Burleigh Road at 1.15pm; do feel free to come and wave us off
  • Hopefully, that's everything...

Message to parents / carers - HOMEWORK

Your child should now be in possession of their two brand new homework books. We will use these for the rest of the year. 

Homework will be set every Friday and the details will always be communicated with the children. We will also update this page to reflect what they have been asked to do. The questions that the children complete will be marked with them during Friday's lessons. 

We have made several important points to the children today:

  • Homework should not be a battle or a stresser. It is the expectation that the children attempt all of the homework we set and they should do so when requested by people at home. If the children are making the homework process more challenging than it should be, we're happy to support you in any way we can - please come and talk to us.
  • We will only set tasks that the children have covered that week. However, we appreciate that they may still struggle occasionally. The homework is not designed to be a test. Feel free to help them or send them to us with the homework book and we will explain; they should never be upset because they are unable to complete a task - it is simply not that important. 
  • The answers are in the back of the books! Use these to help you and the children to complete any questions that are giving you trouble. You can either cut them out of the book and keep themk or leave them in. Last year, a lot of the children left them in and it worked well.

 

Please get in touch with any questions - we're happy to support however we can.
