All children in primary 6 are expected to read 20 minutes each night!
Reading homework will be issued each Thursday for the following Thursday. It will usually be a task about home reading books or a comprehension task following on from reading skills being focused on in class.
Homework due 21/01/16
Find five interesting words in your home reading book. Write down the meaning of each word then use each one in a sentence of your own.
Miss Prior 🙂
This term P6 will be practicing reading comprehension skills such as questioning and inference with Miss Prior.
With Miss Longford we will be focusing on non-fiction texts and there will be no school group reading books sent home. All children are still expected to read for a minimum of 20 minutes per night as they will be completing work based on their individual home reading in class.
The new tables focus this term is the eight times table. We will be practicing these regularly in class and it is expected that children spent time each day learning them too.
Firstly Happy New Year!
We’ve had a great start back and this week will be focusing on budgeting in our numeracy lessons for ‘Finance week’.
At home everyone must work out how much their lunch costs everyday – e.g. 2 slices of bread, cheese, apple. This can be done either online, using receipts or by visiting a shop.
If you want to go for the hot challenge you should then compare how much it would cost to buy it from another supermarket.
Everyone has spelling words for next Monday in their jotters too. Write these out three times with the original word covered then decide on an activity you want to do to help you remember the spellings. The more creative the better and it may then be chosen for a future spelling homework for the whole class!
All homework for Miss Longford is due on a Monday each week.
