Teaching Assistant: Miss Adams

 

 

This half term, our topics are as follows:

Reading

 

It is really important that children read every week. Reading is fun!! Immerse yourself into a good book and imagine what it might be like to be a character in the book! Get family and friends involved to share the experience and bring your imagination to life!

 

We collect reading records in every Monday to check that reading is taking place at home. Please make sure these are signed.

 

Class 11 are currently reading 'Street Child' to share our passion for reading. It links to our creative curriculum topic! We also use our imagination to predict what might happen next!

Homework

 

Homework is handed out every Monday and is collected in every Friday to be marked. House points are always up for grabs to reward children for their effort and standard. Miss Morris and Mr Coupland are on hand every day to help children if they need a little help completing their homework. Thank you for taking the time to work with your children to complete it at home. 

 

 

Maths

 

Are you super speedy at your times tables?

If you need a little support in becoming super speedy, why not try 'Hit the Button'?

In maths we are using the column methods for the four operations. Here are some examples:

 

Addition:

Always line the digits up using place value

Don't forget to add the carry overs

Always write the addition symbol so that you don't forget your calculation

 

 

Subtraction:

Always line the digits up using place value

Always write the subtraction symbol

If you cannot take one number from the other, borrow one from the next column.

 

 

 

Multiplication:

Always line the digits up using place value

Always ADD the carried numbers

When you are multiplying by 2d number, always put the place holder '0' to help you multiply by the tens digit.

If you are multiplying by 3d number , always put two place holder '0's to help you multiply by 100.

 

 

 

Division:

If there is a remainder, carry it over to the next column

Use your times table facts to help you divide each digit

 

 

Long Division:

Long division works by dealing with the largest column 1st - in the case below the 8 (800).

How many times does 4 go into 8? ... from the 4 times table ..2 x 4 = 8. Write the 2 above the 8 and the result, 8, is written below the 8.

 

 

Work out the remainder by subtracting 8 from 8, 8-8=0 Now bring the 5 down to make 05 the next number to divide into.

 

How many times does 4 go into 5? ... from the 4 times table ..1 x 4 = 4. Write the 1 above the 5 and the result, 4, is written below the 5.

 

 

 

Work out the remainder by subtracting 4 from 5, 5-4=1 Now bring the 6 down to make 16 the next number to divide into.

 

How many times does 4 go into 16? ... from the 4 times table ..4 x 4 = 16. Write the 4 above the 6 and the result, 16, is written below the 16.

Finally, subtract 16 from 16, 16-16=0, which means that there is no remainder.

The answer is 214 with no remainder.

 

 

 

Class Assemblies

 

Our next class assembly is Thursday 28th September! Come along if you want to see what we have been learning!

 

 

Year 6

We are already preparing children for their SATs in May! Our children have been assigned a tutor who will work with them throughout the year to prepare them for answering questions effectively as well as in the allotted time that they get. We strive to ensure that all of our children achieve the best that they possibly can!
