Maths reasoning paper... with a twist!

6MR and 6MH decided to complete a practice maths reasoning paper on Wednesday... with a twist!

Children had to search for the question around the playground and answer it with their partner. 
The engagement from the children was amazing and a bit of fresh air worked wonders! 

We thought we'd also turn it into a bit of friendly competition...
Congratulations to Will, Francesca and Fintan (6MH) for the highest score.
Congratulations to 6MR for the highest average score.

Home Learning Information for Year Six

This coming term, the home learning expectations are as follows:
 
For the first half term, pupils have their pack of revision material to complete. (Spelling tests and reading expectations continue).

In the second half term:

Each week, there will be  either a written or online (TTRs/MyMaths) task set. These will link to End of Key Stage Expectations for arithmetic or reasoning. (20 minutes)

Weekly, we will set a grammar and punctuation activity to consolidate our work in class. (20 minutes)

In school, we have a weekly focus on learning and practising  a spelling rule. A list of spellings to learn that follow the week's rule will be provided. (20 minutes)
 
Class teachers will test each week's spelling list on a Thursday. 



Home learning will be set on a Thursday and will be due in the following Tuesday. 
 
Anyone unable to access the internet at home can do so during a Friday or Monday lunchtime in the school library.

On Tuesday 2nd & Wednesday 3rd July, most children will attend their secondary school. After this time, there will be no formal Home Learning set by us for the final weeks of the year.
