October Half-term homework

Hello everyone!

Just a note to say that your homework is to go over your maths and SPAG tests with a different colour pen and try and do some corrections – if you are close to full-marks already, then aim to get every question correct! If you have a lot to do, let’s agree that you need to try and correct at least 5 on each paper (more if you like though!)

Reading homework is as usual -x3 reads over the week please.

Have a good holiday and see you in November!

Mr Day

Homework 18/10/19

Hello!

This week’s home learning is:

  1. Get ready for next week’s ‘Grand Spell’ test – revise all the words from group 1 to group 7
  2. Literacy: there is a mini reading test in your book. Please answer all questions with care – aim to complete in no more than 20 mins.
  3. Maths: there is a mini maths test in your book. Aim to finish every question (you could use Mymaths or IXL as help if needed!) spend no more than 30 mins on this.
  4. Reading: PLEASE READ FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY FOR 20 MINS EACH DAY AND RECORD IN YOUR GREEN READING RECORD.

To give everyone a bit more time on this, I will accept the maths and literacy handed in on TUESDAY, but you must ensure that all the reading is completed and handed in for checking on Monday as usual.

Thanks everyone,

Mr Day

Welcome to the Y6 class page!

Hello! And welcome. You made it! Your final year here at St Mary’s! How exciting!

Together, let’s make this year your best EVER year of learning in preparation for the next step of your education.

This web page will be an important point of reference for you and your families on a weekly basis.

On it, you are likely to find:

  • Homework information
  • Spelling lists (see the link at the top of this page!)
  • Top tips and learning links to other web pages
  • Key information or news
  • Pieces of children’s outstanding work
  • Photos of exciting events
  • Reminders and prompts to help you get the best from your education

To start with, a reminder that all of you can now access (for FREE!) the excellent ESPRESSO from Discovery Education by simply going to:

www.discoveryeducation.co.uk       clicking on ‘espresso’ and then using the following usernames and passwords:

student18496   student18496

I hope you find some time to use it over the coming year – it will help you get ahead with topic revision, provide you with simple and effective learning platforms and of course provide invaluable as a resource in preparation for your SATs tests next May.

A polite reminder for the new term: before you left for the summer break, all children and parents were reminded that in September 2019 it would be a requirement for ALL children to have a proper book bag and just a simple PE bag for the new school year – rather than the ever bigger ‘rucksack’ type bags that have been coming in. There was also a reminder that pencil cases are not needed as everything is provided in class. Please ensure that you comply with these requirements. Thank you.

Remember to check back here regularly for updates, news, information and lots more!

You are very welcome in Year 6! I hope you enjoy it!

Thank you …and a few shots from the Y6 leavers’ slideshow…

I just wanted to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who bought kind gifts, sent lovely cards and said thoughtful words as we ended this school  year – it is so very much appreciated! So much generosity, thoughtfulness and love all around!

Here’s just a few piccis from the slide show that was shown in church – just in case you missed any! Feel free to get in touch if you’d like a copy for yourselves and I’ll see what I can do!

Best wishes for a safe and happy summer and good luck for September!

Year Six Eucharist July 2019

Crosby Beach 2019

Year 5 had an excellent day on Crosby Beach, where they learnt about coastal features, Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’, sea life and wind power. The day was made even better with the beautiful sunny weather.

Martin Mere Trip

Year 2 pupils enjoyed learning about habitats and food chains today at Martin Mere. They found lots of amazing creatures when pond dipping which created lots of excitement. They then visited the next habitat to collect and identify minibeasts in the woodland. They realised that if one type of animal died then this affected all the other animals. They learnt that animals each have a role within a habitat such as making compost, putting air in the soil or pollinating plants. They loved walking around in the glorious sunshine watching all the wildlife and waterfowl…especially the flamingoes!

Experience Pentecost

The Year Two to Year Six children have taken part in a number of exciting and thought provoking activities, in order to learn all about Pentecost. They have learnt all about the value of waiting patiently for things, working together as a team and being brave in difficult situations.  They know how the word and love of God started small and is now followed across the world. The children were left with the question, how can you show God’s love through your actions?

 

Half term homework

Y6 homework 3/5/19

Hi everyone

After a tough week of intensive learning and assessments, this weekend I encourage you to spend time relaxing and having fun. Keep up your reading as always and if you have any ‘weaker’ areas – especially with maths or spellings– just spend a little time practising to put your mind at rest.

Other than that, come back on Tuesday refreshed and ready to go!

Have a good weekend everyone
