Although this week’s homework is Creative, we’re doing it slightly differently. Last year, the class really enjoyed the independent learning they did for our World History topic. The class would like to try something like this again so next week will be a week of independent project work linked to our topic.

Next week, you’ll be creating something independently about one aspect of living on the home front: evacuation, the blitz, air raids, women at war, rationing or anything else that piques your interest. Year 6 always create amazing Creative homework so what you actually choose to create is up to you. Here are a few ideas from me:

  • A magazine for a child living during the war
  • A project board (like we produced last year)
  • An information leaflet.
  • A game we can play

So, decide what you want to create and what it will be about. (You’ll have four hours throughout the week to complete it – think about that when making your choice.) Your actual homework will be to gather the information you need in order to complete the work in class.

So that we can complete this project work during class time, this homework will be due on Tuesday 11 October.

For Mathletics homework, each child has been assigned two tasks from MULTIPLY AND DIVIDE WRITTEN.

  • Everyone has been assigned ‘Short Division’.
  • Some children have been assigned ‘Long Multiplication’.
  • Some children have been assigned ‘Multiply 2-Digit Number regroup’.

This work will allow the children to practise skills we’ve been revising this week on multiplication and get a head start on division which we’ll be moving on to next week.

These task should be completed by Thursday 06 October. As always, let me know if there are any difficulties before Thursday and I’ll do what I can to help.

This week’s homework is Practice Makes Perfect and is due on Thursday 06 October.

Write 10 sentences about your trip to Eden Camp using a range of openers – think about what else you could show off, too.

There’ll be pictures of our trip up on Y6 Class News to remind you of what we did and what you saw. Write ten sentences, making sure you’re using a range of openers – which is your writing target.

Although I want you to focus on openers, think about whether you can show off or practise any other skills too:

  • middlers and enders
  • punctuation (; : – )
  • expanded noun phrases
  • adverbial phrases

This week’s homework is Talk Time and will be discussed on Thursday 29 September.

I try and understand other people’s feelings.

This is our SEAL statement for next week. Children should discuss the statement at home and write some notes to help with our discussion in class.

This week’s homework is Creative and is due on Thursday 22 September.

What do I know about the world?

For the last two weeks, our learning has focused on our world. We’ve had to learn new terminology, be more familiar with the countries that make up given continents and understand what a map tells us about an area. Now it’s time to show what you know. This might involve some learning you’ve done in class but you could also teach us something new.

What could you do?

  • Create a test map that the rest of us have to see if we know which is the Tropic of Cancer and which are longitude and latitude.
  • Find some images of different places around the world and see whether we can say where they are.
  • Plan a walk through the countryside using an OS map, pointing out where you can visit along the way and whether you’ll be tired from walking up hills.
  • Draw a map of our local area and make sure your map has a key.

For this week’s Mathletics task, your child has been assigned three activities related to the learning we’ve done this week. This should be completed by Thursday 22 September.

There were some problems last week with some children’s activities becoming unassigned meaning they didn’t know which ones to complete. Here are the activities so you can find them yourselves if this happens again:

Place value 

  • lowest common multiple
  • (something harder) rounding numbers

Add and subtract

  • negative or positive

As always, come and let me know before Thursday if there are any problems and, if you’re finding it tricky, I’ll be around on Wednesday lunchtime for you to complete a task then.

Each week, the children will be assigned a Mathletics challenge to work on at home.

This week, they have been assigned three tasks that relate to the learning we’ve done in class. These tasks must be completed by Thursday 15 September.

We’ll look at these tasks together once the children have completed them themselves and identify any strengths and weaknesses that occur from them. If for any reason they are unable to access Mathletics one week, it will be available every Wednesday lunchtime in Year 6 for them to complete it in school.

This week’s homework is Practice Makes Perfect and is due on Thursday 15 September.

Choose a continent and see how many of its countries you can learn and locate on the map.

As our topic is Where in the World, we’ve been learning lots about different countries and where they are. This challenge will help them to become more familiar with their chosen continent and provides an opportunity to improve memory skills.
