HOME LEARNING

Hi Year 6 and welcome to week 2 of home learning!

I hope you are all well and managed to enjoy the weekend. 

Here are a few bits to be getting on with this week...

 

1. Please continue to learn your times tables. Pick a times table that you know you need to work on and focus on that. You could make cards with the answers on the reverse to help you learn them. Don't forget to keep working on Mathletics. Really challenge yourself in those areas you know you need to improve on!

2. Keep reading! I know I have mentioned it all year, but it is such a great skill to have, and at the moment it is a great time to get absorbed in a wonderful story! 

3. As a class, we have discussed many endangered species. Pick an endangered animal that interests you and research it. Create an information page on this animal in your home learning jotter book. Then produce either a persuasive poster or write a persuasive leaflet to encourage others to help protect the animal. You may even want to choose the beloved panda!

4. Sketch your animal carefully. Focus on shading techniques. Remember your first attempt may not be your best, keep working at your sketch to improve it. 

5. Remember to try and stay fit and healthy. Try and join in with Joe Wicks' workout each day. It is good for your body and your soul!

 

Take care and stay safe!

Mrs Collins

Homework

Homework is given out weekly on a Thursday. It should be returned the following Tuesday. There is a labelled homework box in the classroom, where children can hand in their books. Children are given maths homework and spellings to learn. It is important they learn what these spellings mean and how to use them in context. They have a full week to learn their spellings and they are tested, through dictation, first thing on a Thursday morning.

At Larkrise we expect each child to read every day. Daily reading has a huge impact on progress and attainment.
