Welcome back for the 2nd half term.
We are busy with the next part of our topic now, World War 2.
On Wednesday we have Tony Cope visiting for a WW2 activity day which has always gone down well in the past.
A new homework choices grid will go home with the children this week. It was lovely to see a wide range of homeworks brought in for the WW1 grid. We had a great sharing session where we learnt new things from each other's homeworks. Well done to those who made the time to complete some of the tasks.
Spellings are up and running again - week 7 this week.
The children have been shown how they can log in to Mymaths whenever they want, and search for a topic they are doing in school. They can then complete lessons/activities/games to help consolidate what they have been doing, or they can move on to harder stuff if they feel ready. There will sometimes be set tasks allocated, but otherwise it is up to the children to start to identify where using it will help them.
And keep on learning those times tables with TTRockstars. The faster and more accurate the better!
Year 6 teachers
A week off homework this week. No spellings next week as it's Our World Week - year 6 will be learning a lot about Earthquakes and Tsunamis around the world.
Class homeworks (that were completed and brought in on time) have been shared and it was fabulous to see the children taking an interest in what they have been doing - and we've enjoyed lots of Trench Cake to share.
The homework task of the St Asaph Christmas card competition is due next week, so no new homework tasks this week. Instead the children have been asked to complete and bring in their entries.
A new homework grid will be given for after half term, when we start learning more about WW2.
Thank you to all the children who have been bringing in homework tasks they have already completed from our menu of activity choices for WW1. Keep them coming as we will be sharing them in the penultimate week before half term.
Spellings this week ahead are to learn week 5.
Maths - mymaths logins are still active for all pupils and a homework to revise column addition/subtraction has been set ready for us deepening understanding and fluency with these methods over the next few weeks. Please alert us if you have difficulties getting on to mymaths. Use puffin browser on ipads to allow it to run. Paper copies can be made available if required. Please ask.
Welcome to the new Year 6. What a fabulous start to the new year. :)
Please find below 2 links to documents.
1 - Spelling list for the whole half term. We are doing week 2 next week. Please keep pink spelling books at home for practising the lists. There are suggestions at the bottom of the page.
2 - The menu of activities for the topic homework. Please choose 5 (or more) activities from the different boxes to complete over the next 5 weeks and return to school on the 18.10.19. The resulting work will be shared in class and lots of housepoints awarded for effort.
3 - Maths homework. Please keep going with TTRockstars to improve times tables as much as possible.
Homework / Spellings year 6.
Due to the upcoming National Tests in reading, maths and mathematical reasoning, and our Cardiff residential, we will be giving the children in year 6 a break from homework for the next few weeks.

Homework for this week is about poems. Your task is to find a favourite poem.
Copy it out neatly, or type it out. You could illustrate it to suit the content of the poem.
Underneath, say what the poem is about and why you like it.
We will be creating a class anthology of the poems next week. Please bring it in by Tuesday.
Welcome to Year 6!
Your teacher will very soon be filling this page with exciting class news, pictures of things we've done and more.
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!
Have you seen the Kids' Zone? Play games and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourites.
This week's homework is to research their own questions about the topic 'Light' and to create an interesting, informative and attractive fact page about the questions they find out about.
The homework is due back on Monday, 19th November.

This week's homework is a research task. We are discovering information about natural disasters from 2018 as part of our Our World Week.
See the attached sheet if it is missing from homework books!
A huge well done to all the pupils for excellent behaviour this week. The ladies at the records office called the school specifically to say how well they had been working up at the records office researching the fallen soldiers of WW1.
Today's trip to the replica WW1 trenches in Park Hall Farm was very successful and also saw superb behaviour. The children asked lots of questions about the trenches and the items in the museum areas. Well done all.
Following on from the trip, this week's homework is a comprehension activity. It's not in the homework books for two reasons. 1 - it will be added into our topic books with our other WW1 topic work when returned to school. 2 - we need to keep the learning logs in school for our biography writing this week. Please return to school by Thursday.
The year 6 team.
Homework for year 6 this week is a mymaths activity which rehearses the work we've been doing on adding (and subtracting) decimals. They are reminded that the key thing is to line up the decimal point when they write it down to solve the question.
In addition, the St Asaph Christmas card competition information has gone home. We had some winners last year, so good luck to all those who take part.
Mrs Watterson and Mr Clubley.
A warm welcome to the new year sixes, from a new team of year 6 teachers!
The classes have settled into their new classrooms brilliantly and made a great start to the new year.
This week's homework is in the learning log books. The children are to look at the different classroom jobs that they would like to do and to tick any they are interested in from the list, then to write a short letter of application underneath. These will be shared in class and used when we are choosing new year 6 responsibilities.
