Spellings – important information

Hello Year 6

As discussed in class today (4/11/20) we will be ‘upping our game‘ a little bit as regards spelling.

On top of your 15 weekly ‘group’ spellings, I will be dropping in a further 5 from the sheets below. Don’t forget: you’ve been given your own personal copy so keep it safe and use it. The tests will now be out of 20.

‘Grand spell’ tests will still be out of 20 and I will tell you which words to revise before those tests.

Remember: the spelling RULES are even more important than just the words.

Put the effort in and you’ll do well!

Welcome to Year 6!

Hello and welcome back to Year 6!

You’ve had an AMAZING few days and I must say I am very impressed – you’ve all settled really well and you are definitely ready for the challenges ahead. We’re in it together and I am SURE that all of you have it in you to make excellent progress in your last year at St Mary’s.

I’ve kept homework fairly simple this weekend – see below. Please remember that homework is due on Monday.

  1. Have a look at IXL.COM and see how it works. Spend a little time experimenting with it.
  2.  x2 recorded ‘reads’ by Tuesday please. Green readers will be checked then.
  3.  Learn gp 1 spellings and write x10 sentences in your book that contain them (spelling test Friday!)
  4.  Make sure you are rested and ready for next week!

Parents – have you read the Y6 newsletter that was sent out on parentmail today?  Take a look if you can. There is also a video on the website, showing a few snippets of life at St Mary’s over the last few days..

Have a good weekend everyone!

Back to school blog…

Hi everyone.

If you check the Purple Mash blog, I have added a new thread about ‘back to school’.

Take a look and add your comments if you like.

Take care and have a good weekend.

Mr Day

Emotional health and mental well-being…

Hello everyone.

I just want to point you in the direction of a new set of resources on our ‘Learning’ tab dropdown on the website.

If you click on it, you will find a range of resources and documents that contain some useful advice: especially if your children are struggling somewhat during the lockdown.

Please take a moment to have a look at the resources – particularly the information on World Mental Health Awareness Day.

Don’t forget, if we can help – we will do our best. There is usually someone here at school you can talk to.

Best wishes to you all on behalf of all the staff here at St Mary’s.

Mr Day

 

Music box reading answers

Hi everyone – I hope you and your families are doing well!

Here’s the link for the MUSIC BOX reading answers: DOWNLOAD

I really hope you are coping with the ‘lockdown’. At least the sun is shining eh?

Don’t forget that the No.1 thing you can do to keep your brain active is to READ. Use this time to really get into a great book.  You could even download or stream an audio book by visiting https://stories.audible.com/start-listen They are totally free during lockdown and there is a good selection of ‘elementary’ reads on there.

Keep an eye out for home-learning to appear here again on 20th April.

Until then, I hope you have a safe, happy Easter. You are in my thoughts. Mrs Roberts also sends her love.

Mr Day

Purple mash info and Pobble info…

Hi everyone. I hope you are well!

It appears that this week’s purple mash 2DO based on databases is unclear, so I have deleted that task and replaced it with lots of coding activities, which you should try to do in order, building up from the traffic lights (Gibbon) task through to the 2GO task (Gorilla). Try your best and remember to watch and listen to tutorials if needed. You can try these coding tasks over the next few days.

Also, the writing task is from POBBLE365.COM   – type this into your address bar to search for today’s writing tasks.

Thank you and take care!

  2. You prepare for a Spring Term ‘Grand Spell’ groups 1 – 5

And that’s it! Unless of course you have the urge to use IXL, MYMATHS or your CGP revision books for SATs.

Have a great weekend! Oh – and please remind your parents that it is parents’ evening on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

Christmas is nearly here!

Ho!Ho!Ho!

First – a massive THANK YOU to everyone for their kind Christmas messages, cards and gifts – too much!! I am very grateful!

Secondly – and this is the bit you’ll like – the only thing I’d like you to do regarding homework is to keep up the reading over Christmas. I think x6 reads recorded should do it as a minimum.

Wishing you all and your families a joyful, peaceful Christmas.

See you on Tuesday, 7th January 2020!

Mr Day
