WE’VE MOVED!

The Burgh Y6 blog has now moved to a new home at burghy6.primaryblogger.co.uk

Please update your bookmarks accordingly!

There are still a few links to migrate across to the new site, but most things should be up and running now.

Mr. Hurdman

New Y6@Burgh blog is almost finished!

As the children already know, we are in the process of transferring Y6@Burgh to a new location. We’re almost done, so why not check out our progress at burghy6.primaryblogger.co.uk

Y6 Homework – Thursday 2nd October

Only 2 children were late with homework/did not hand in homework last week. Everyone else either handed it in on time, was absent or provided a note from a parent explaining why it was not quite finished (and made the effort to complete it as soon as they physically could).

THIS WEEK…

Mathematics HW

Keep learning unknown tables.

Everyone has another piece of mental maths homework to complete tonight. Do any jottings you need to. Hopefully these won’t take you too long. You can ask for help at home – why not give them a go first, pop a * by any you feel you need help with and then ask for assistance. You can come and ask me for help if necessary too.

English HW

We still expect all Y6 children to read at home regularly. This should be a mixture of reading to an adult (regardless of the child’s reading ability), listening to an adult read (regardless of the child’s reading ability) and also self-reading a mix of fiction and non-fiction (including newspapers, magazines, non-fiction books, websites, comics etc.)

In class, reading is a mixture of guided reading (working in groups to read and discuss books and texts), individual reading of school reading books to an adult in school and possibly short comprehension-style exercises either in groups or individually (again, this may equally be the more able readers as well as those who need a little more support).

Tonight you have the second of our series of Reading Comprehension HW tasks. These shouldn’t take too long to complete, but should help you brush up on key skills.

REMINDERS:

Don’t forget you need a packed lunch on Monday when we go to our writing workshop at East Kirkby. We are back after the end of the school day.

Don’t forget to bring in the 2nd PGL payment instalment.

The Y6 blog can be found at burghy6.wordpress.com whilst the whole school one is online at burghschool.wordpress.com Look out for news of these addresses changing slightly in the near future.

If the children need to change their school reading books, reading records need to have been signed by an adult at home (or school if they have read to an adult individually in school) sometime over the previous 7 days. It may not have been for that particular book, but it will indicate that they are reading out loud other than in guided groups.

PLEASE STICK IN HW (TRIM OR FOLD IF NECESSARY SO IT DOES NOT STICK OUT OF BOOKS)

Y6 Homework – Thursday 25th September

clip_image002There were a few missing pieces of HW from last week. If you were away when it was set then that’s OK. If you were off when it was due back, it should be handed in as soon as you return. Get into good HW habits NOW! In 12 months time you’ll probably be completing 1-3 hours of HW per night! In fact, yesterday I heard from a child at KEVI (Spilsby) that she was receiving 4 pieces each day!

THIS WEEK…

Mathematics HW

Two weeks ago the children received a copy of their first times-tables assessment of the year. If you were red or orange for any of these then you need to spend time learning them! This means being able to answer multiplication and division questions without hesitation or having to work through a whole times-table to get the answer. As I have said to the children on an almost daily basis this term, for most children chanting their tables EVERY DAY (e.g. 1 seven is seven, 2 sevens are fourteen etc) is the best way to learn them. I would also expect to see evidence in HW books of the children writing out unknown tables and even perhaps a couple of quick 5-question tests. Those children with tables to learn will be assessed regularly.

Everyone has another piece of mental maths homework to complete tonight. Do any jottings you need to, but these hopefully won’t take you too long.

Last week’s E-Safety HW

This was well completed overall – you certainly seem to be well protected at home! We are typing them up and they will appear on our blogs soon (as will our e-safety advice from classwork).

REMINDERS:

Photos and Hockey tomorrow: We will endeavour to make sure Y6 photos have been taken before they start playing hockey! We wouldn’t want to ruin the children’s hair!
