You should be reading every night for at least 20 minutes, and then doing an AR test when appropriate in school.
In Year 6, the expectation is for a very high standard of spelling. There is a recommended word list, and during the SATs there will be a spelling test which will feature some of those words. We will practise some each week.
We practised speech this week as part of our look at the story 'Voices in the Park.'
I would like you to put your new skills to use to write a conversation! This can be ebtween any two people, and about about any content! I want each person to say at least 5 lines. Don't forget:
- Speech marks
- Capital letters
- Punctuation in the right place
- New speaker new line
How many high quality words can you use? Adjectives? Adverbs? Have you started each line in the same way or have you varied it? Look to push yourself!
Below is a sheet of questions which are based around timesing and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. You will notice there is a star at the bottom of the page, and then 2 stars further on, and then finally 3. The more stars, the harder the questions. Challenge yourself appropriately- if you are finding it too easy, move on to the next star. You will also notice the answers are there, so you can mark if you want- obviously I am trusting you not to cheat, because as we have discussed in class, that gains nothing!
