Over half term the children have been asked to have a good rest as well as...
Read a story that is based in WW1 or WW2. Some suggestions for novels include Carrie's War (Nina Badwen), Goodnight Mister Tom (Michelle Magorian), Friend or Foe (Michael Morpurgo), The lion and the Unicorn (Shirley Hughes), Blitzcat (Robert Westall), The Silver Sword (Ian Serrailier). You may of course find your own which would be lovely to share with the rest of the class. Do ensure that he novels are appropriate for 10-11 year olds as obviously we are studying a period that can be portrayed in graphic detail.
The children have also been asked to play on Times Table Rockstars daily (at least 5 minutes a day). I have set up a girls v boys battle which will commence on Saturday 27th October and last until Monday 5th November. Your child's password and username has been given out again and should be located in their homework diary.
No spellings have been set over the holidays however I have attached a copy of the year 5 6 tricky words (which you will find at the bottom of the class page) so that if you have time you could spend some time explaining the meaning of these words and getting your child to practise them. They will be tested in the Year 6 SATs.
Most children have something that they need to being into school for our Bake off. Please can you check with them what they have promised they will bring in so as not to let the rest of their group down.
Have a wonderful break
Kind regards Mrs Bullock
