Welcome to Class 11!

Teacher: Mrs O'Brien

Teaching Assistant: Miss Adams

Welcome to a new half term.

 

 

This half term, our topics are as follows:

Science - Evolution

Core Learning Skills - Speaking and listening and Circle Time

Creative Curriculum - Anglo Saxons and Vikings

 

 

 

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 Friday to check that reading is taking place at home at least 5 times a week. Please make sure these are signed.

 

Class 11 are currently reading 'Holes'. It links to our creative curriculum topic and is a really fantastic read. In our Talk for Reading lessons, we investigate and learn new, ambitious vocabulary, retrieve information, infer meaning and summarise information from the text. These are all skills that help us comprehend the story and deepen our understanding. 

The children will need to use these skills to help them complete their Book Blog at home. (see top for the link)

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. Mrs O'Brien and Miss Adams are on hand every day to help children if they need a little help completing their homework and there is also a homework club on Thursday lunchtime too. Thank you for taking the time to work with your children to complete it at home.

Please ensure that Book Blog and Times Tables Rockstars is completed weekly too. 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

Year 6

Well done to all the Year 6's who have now completed their SAT's. You all showed a real maturity and determination to be the best you can be. My thanks goes to all parents who have supported their children with the extra work at home.

Also, we are just back from our residential trip to The Briars. It was an absolutely fantastic week. Lots of fun had by all. You should be proud of how you represented the school. Well done.
