St. Francis’ Class (Year 6)
Welcome back to Year 6. We hope you had an enjoyable half term break and are raring to go with your learning! This term we will be studying long division, tackling multi-step calculations and fractions! We will also continue learning about our ‘European Neighbours’ and ‘Living Things and their Habitats’. We will also be considering the genres of Reports, Play Scripts and Christmas Poetry.
Homework will be given out every Monday to be returned every Monday. Your child will receive 2 pieces of homework per week. Spellings are given out on a Monday and children are tested the following Monday.
A great iPhone/iPad app you can personalise by typing in their weekly spellings to make practising fun is:
Squeebles Spelling Test
Times tables are tested on Monday. Children should practise their times tables facts regularly at home in order to progress. At the end of Year 6 children must know all their times tables to 12 x 12.
A useful website for practise is: www.multiplication.com
There are also excellent iPad apps available such as:
Squeebles Times Tables
10 minute a day times tables.
Please listen to your child read frequently and please try to ensure that they read for 20 minutes every day. Thank you for your continued support with their spellings and times tables.
