Friday 15th October
We should have been doing music this afternoon so please spend some time practicing our 2 very special songs which we are going to be performing at our very special assembly next week. I can't say what they are as they are a secret but you know what they are!
It would also have been French this afternoon so click here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsc3qLMaCu8 to learn the numbers to 10.
We didn't get our reading done today either so curl up with a book for half an hour.

Strive for 5 - read 5 times a week and get AN ADULT to listen to you and sign your homework book.
I believe our class can easily win the weekly Strive for 5 certificate! Come on we can do it!
Times table practice - show me that you have practiced in your book on at least 4 different nights of the week and then you will be ready to show off your skills in class when we do our 3 minute Rockstar test everyday.
USE TIMES ROCKSTARS, - the children who use it are definitely improving loads. I have genuinely heard children say, "I know my 9's because of Rockstars," and, "I am so much faster and it is all because of ROCKSTARS."
Spelling practice - show me that you have practiced your words in your book on at least 4 different nights of the week and then you will be able to spell your words easily on the test on Friday. Remember I love to see your pictures which include your spelling words wrote over and over again inside of them. USE SPELLING SHED - the children who are using it regularly are seeing a big improvement in their spelling.
Year 6 will have additional homework each week. You must do it not only to improve your skills but in order to get into a good routine for secondary school where no homework means detention!
Remember you will be rewarded for completing your homework AND striving for 5
