Wasps - Year 6
Please read our topic map to find out what we will be learning this term.
This week we have been focusing on homophones with and the difference in spelling. We use 'ce' when it is a noun and 'se' when it is a verb.
Please practice these with your children at home.
Some ideas to practice are:
Trace, copy and replicate
Drawing around the word to show the shape
Words without vowels
Be as creative as you like with your spelling practice!
We regularly practise our Year 5 and 6 Common Exception Words
Please continue to encourage the children to use TTRS each week to improve their multiplication and division fluency.
Please continue to ensure your child is reading at home on a regular basis and ask your child to explain or describe what they have been reading. This will really help with their reading comprehension skills. Please record this in their reading diary daily. If they read 7 times a week, they could be selected to attend an 'Afternoon Tea' with a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
In order to prepare the children for the SATs in May and their transition to secondary school, they will be set two pieces of homework a week (Maths and SPaG). The homework will be set on a Friday and due to the following week. To further support the children, I will offer an open homework club on a Tuesday lunchtime (12:15-12:30), where they can ask any questions or seek further support.
