**Change to PE this week**
P6 will have PE on Monday this week so need to dress appropriately for this. The reason for the swap, is that we are having an online workshop with a scientist on Tuesday afternoon. Children will prepare questions on Monday to ask the scientist . Sorry for the short notice, I forgot to let children know on Friday!
Spelling homework is as normal – please hand in completed work on Friday.
Maths/numeracy – Last week we were revising multiplying and dividing by 10,100 and 1000. There’s plenty of work still to be done on this so we’ll continue on this week , progressing onto work with multiples of 10s,100s, and 100s. ( 40x 20 50 x 70 30 x 200 80 x 700 300 x 200 and so on) The importance of children knowing their basic tables is paramount.
Wherever possible, children are encouraged to spot patterns, make connections and follow repeat processes. This takes the ‘fear factor’ out of maths in many cases!
- I will send home a revision worksheet on Wednesday and plan to set a Sumdog challenge too.
Science – Last week, P6 had lots of fun creating chain reaction runs. There were so many important skills developed within this seemingly simple task. Children were very enthusiastic about this so we’ll have another session on Wednesday.
Topic – A new topic, to be revealed, will be launched next term. This week, we’ll finish our art studies of leaves and water droplets.
Handwashing – Everyone is doing a great job of hand washing in class and we must not lose focus on this. Please remind your child to hand wash or sanitise entering/leaving the school building and before/after eating.
Finally, a reminder that half term begins on Friday 16th October at 12:25pm. Pupils return to school on Tuesday 27th October and will have PE on this day.
