Welcome to Oak & Elm
The Elm ‘Star of the Week’ goes to Edward for some fantastic writing. Edward has given up some of his own time to continue his story writing this week! Well done Edward!
The Oak ‘Star of the Week’ goes to Lenny. Lenny has really shown a fantastic work ethic, participated fully in all our discussions, produced brilliant Maths work and just been so attentive all week.
Please learn these homophones. You will also need to think about their meanings and how they are used.
Another fantastic week of learning in Year 6!
The ‘Stars of the Week’ are:
William – for working hard in all subject areas.
Maya – for trying hard in all areas and producing exceptional work in Maths on Thursday.
Please encourage your child to read at least 4 times per week (ideally, one of these should be Reading Plus). We are happy for the children to write in their own Reading Record book each time they read, but can parents / carers please sign this once a week. We will check Reading Records every Friday.
The spellings for this week are attached to this post. The children will have a paper copy but we will not require this to be returned to school. They will be tested on a Friday.
The children should continue to practise their KIRFs from last week.
What a fantastic start to Year 6 we’ve had! Here are our first ‘Stars of the Week’ of the new academic year:
Elm – Emily has made a super start to Year 6 and is an asset to our team.
Oak – Jaiden for demonstrating a fantastic attitude, working hard and exhibiting perfect manners!
The children have been asked to focus on their times tables up to 12 x 12 this term. The attached document has some ideas of how to support and challenge further. We will also be working on these in class.
