Well done Eagles!



Eagles have set the bar high with their first week of home learning.  We had a wonderful array of Tudor based work and enjoyed taking the time to share and celebrate it this morning (17th September).  Let's hope that this standard is maintained over the year!


This week, all of the Eagles have shown us how mature they are, as they have taken the changes to our usual routine in their stride and continued to work very well.  Keep it up Year 6!

Some of Eagles' Homework

A great start to the year!



The Eagles have made a great start to Year 6.  They have enjoyed having different teachers and a staggering three classrooms!  So far they have been getting to grips with Macbeth, exploring place value, finding out about the human body and researching Tudor dates.  The class is working very hard and demonstrating this month's school value of responsibility.  We have every confidence that they will continue to be an amazing Year 6!

1. Grid. Something from the grid (attached below) each week.  Please remember to date work and write a title.


2. Spellings. Learn this week’s spellings – the list is in your book and attached below.  The document below also has some ideas for ways to practise.  If you already know all of this week’s words, practise some of the Y5/6 statutory spellings (attached below).  You can also revise key spellings here: you can also look at the Y1 -4 common exception words to revise and practise these if needed.


3. Mathletics – once you have your login, please ensure you complete your assigned tasks and problems.  Let us know if you lose your login.


4. Reading – please read daily and at least once a week with an adult. Below is a bookmark for some ideas for questions.


5.Make sure your times tables are up to speed! You can practise with a family member or play hit the button at Alternatively, see if you can pass the tables test that pupils have to sit at the end of Y4 (it’s a good way to check that you are up to speed!)
