Launch yourselves into learning!

We really enjoyed our topic and homework launches this week where we had a go at a quiz to find out how much we already know about the Victorians. Some of us did really well indeed (including Mr Abbott who joined in too!). Now that you’ve got your new Knowledge Organisers, can you post a question or two for everyone else to try?

In the afternoon launch, we had some noisy fun with the buzzers looking at photographs of Victorian Worksop and trying to work out where they were taken. It was a great help having our adults to support our house teams!

In Read Theory, we are steadily increasing our Knowledge Points: can we go for it this week and reach 3500 quizzes completed by Friday?Harley is still in the lead moving on to 4766 points and Aiden is still reading the hardest texts at 676L although Oliver is hot on his tail! Watch this space to see how things change over the coming days…

Happy New Year!!

Welcome back everyone! We’ve come back in 2018 with attitudes determined to go for gold! Over the past two days we’ve shown that we’re rested and ready for all of the challenges that the coming term will bring. We’ve reviewed our test scores from before we broke up and most of us were really pleased with our progress so far and we know exactly what we need to do next in our commitment to go for the title of ‘Best Year 6 Ever’! We’ve been looking at the features of emails in our Reading work as well as some of the effects of climate change. Can you write a sentence or two with any of the words we needed to clarify?

In Maths, we’ve recapped on halving strategies and applied our skills in different ways and got stuck back into our CLIC and SAFE challenges. Next week will be the last week on our six fact challenge Learn Its (6 x 6 = 36, 7 x 6 = 42, 9 x 6 = 54, 7 x 7 = 49, 9 x 7 = 63 and 9 x 9 = 81).

We are looking forward to our Topic and Homework Project Launch on Thursday and had  a quick discussion about what we know and want to know about the  Victorian era. Maybe you’ll spend some time doing some initial research on it this weekend…

In Read Theory, Harley is in the lead with 4626 Knowledge Points and Aiden is still reading and successfully quizzing at the hardest level. Why not have a go over the weekend to see if you can catch them?
