Time to knuckle down…

We’re back and raring to go after the holiday! Your challenge this week is to complete 250 Read Theory quizzes by Friday. If EVERYONE does 2 each night between Tuesday and Friday evening that’s 240 towards your total…

Also, I’d like you to begin some serious memorisation of the knowledge organiser – the end of topic quiz will be upon us before we know it!

Test yourself now:

What year was the Mines Act passed?

What year did the first workhouses open?

In what year did school become compulsory for children aged between 5-10?

Who did Queen Victoria succeed?

Can you name 5 places that were part of the British Empire?


Busy week

We’ve had a busy time of it this week in Year 6. On Wednesday, we went to Worksop College to watch their production of My Fair Lady and on Thursday, we visited the library to analyse census data, articles, maps and photographs from the Victorian era.

Perhaps you were so tired from all of this that you didn’t have chance to do as many Read Theory quizzes? Unfortunately, we only completed 233 quizzes so those class credits will have to wait…

For this week’s target, can you get back on track and complete 275 for a credit?

Knowledge Points earned this week: Charlotte C 374; Samantha & Riah 407; Charlotte G 421; Jack C 519

Quizzes taken this week: Charlotte C 16; Riah & Charlotte G 19; Samantha 27; Jack C 30

Aiden is still reading the hardest texts

For our Learn Its, we are using ALL of our times tables to quickly recall fractions such as 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/7, 1/8, 1/9, 1/10, 1/11 and 1/12 of amounts

We are also going to nudge things along and recall fractions as decimals

Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday. It’s just one more week and then we’ve done half of our year together!!

My Fair Lady

Year 6 were lucky enough to be invited to Worksop College to watch the matinee performance of My Fair Lady this afternoon. Here we are during the intermission waiting to find out what happens with Eliza and Henry next.

Morning Mission: Can you summarise the plot? What did you enjoy about the performance?

Another class credit earned!

Well Year 6, your target was to complete 275 quizzes and you upped your games and did 390 so I’ll add the credit on Monday!! If you can complete 400 quizzes this week, I’ll reward you with two credits next time!
