Revision Guides and Question Books

Revision Guides have been giving out to all children now - you are very lucky to receive this great resource for FREE! 

Below are the expectations:

Revision guides are to stay at home (two text books - one maths and one English). Children should read them regularly and look up any thing that they are struggling with. It is recommended that children read the topics that we have studied at school. They can stay at home till SATS (May), then we will be asking for them back.

Some homework will be set in the Question Books. These books will then need to be brought in to school to go through the answers. However, children have been encouraged to make a start on this book - work through little and often. Children will be able to keep their Question Books and hopefully use at secondary school as a revision tool. 

Blogger of the week: Tyler

In English, we have been doing our own research projects on an area of our own interests. I have chosen to look up the Fibonacci sequence because I've always wanted to find out more about this. It's so interesting to study things you are curious about. I am very lucky! I can't wait to write a report about this. Look at the blog later to see our work. 

I really wanted to show you this picture that I found for my report.

English Homework

Complete the reading comprehension on 'Heidi' (in your homework reading booklet). 

Remember our strategies that we have practised in the classroom - read the first few questions then the text; underline key words in the question and text; read everything on the page and remember to scan and skim! 

Do you want to do some extra work? 

Use your revision guides to read up on 'parenthesis' and 'relative clauses'. Can you answer the questions in your question book too?

Spooky poetry continued....

We even thought about the structure of the poems to enhance the scary feelings!

Spooky poetry in Y6 today....based on our educational visit to Kirkstall Abbey

The language used was phenomenal: ivy suffocating, reflections disappearing and clouds thundering were just a few examples of great vocabulary choice to evoke emotions!
Every one performed their poem to the class with spooky music quietly playing in the background.
