Spring Topic Web for Year 6
Learning Log 14.3.18
Due in on 19.3.18
For DT this term, you have been designing and then, this week, building a cam based mechanical toy with a Viking theme. For your Learning Log this week we would like you to reflect on how this went.
Please consider the following questions in your review:
Maths Home Learning - Due Monday 19th March
Classifying and understanding Two Dimensional Shapes
Children have been given a home learning task in which they can choose an appropriate challenge. The expectation is at least 30 minutes is spent on maths.
Times Table Practice
Every week children are expected to practise their tables at home. To assist in this, a times table task is sent home each week. This task is in addition to normal maths home learning and not included in the regular 30 minutes.
We have additional maths practices and times table activities on the Mathematics area of the website, linked below.
In year 6, we would like the children to be reading everyday for minimum of 10 minutes. They are required to record at least 5 of their reading sessions in their reading record a week (this must cover 5 separate dates).
Across the school, but particularly in year 6, there is a comprehension focus on children's reading. On occasion, please read with your children and question them on what they have read and understood about their book.
Spellings - Challenge for All
1 – Learn the spelling rule for this week, and any additional words from your lesson
2 – Find other words that follow that rule, find the definitions of the words that are on your worksheets and activities.
3 – Make a classroom resources that will help all the children in the class with the spelling rule, draw a picture or make something that shows your understanding of the spelling rule, write a spellings song or poem…The possibilities are endless!
Below are some of the spelling rules and tests that have been completed this year.
For each rule, there is a break down of how the rule is applied and some example words, including any exceptions.
For each test, there is the list of words that were tested for that week's rule. These will often include why each word is spelled the way it is after each word.
