Half way through!!

We are half way through the term but also Year 6. Can you believe it?! We’ve got lots more great learning coming up: we are going to the library to look at census data from the Victorian era as well as our trip to the National Mining Museum to find out more about working down the pit in Victorian times.

We are going to be finding out a lot more about the different jobs children had to do during the Victorian period. What do you already know? I wonder if anyone has already started researching and has completed the job advert for the homework projects over half term…

It’s time to move on with our learn Its (onto the last step!) and we’ll be working on the 12 times table. Don’t forget about hit the button but in the meantime, we will focus first on

2 x 12 = 24

3 x 12 = 36

4 x 12 = 48

  1. HI Mrs Larkin, sorry I can’t be at school I will catch up with everything I promise.
    I have only got two more projects to do now.

    1. Hey Caitlin πŸ™‚ It can’t be helped, don’t worry yourself! Fab idea to spend some time on the projects – is there anything you need?

      1. Hey Mrs Larkin, please can I have a blank piece of paper and I may need your help with the summary on Oliver twist because I don’t know what to put? See you tomorrow.

        1. No problem – we can go through it tomorrow and you can borrow a copy of the book if you need to refresh your memory πŸ™‚

          1. Thanks Mrs Larkin, I think I have got it. I am printing my job advert off tomorrow but I think I have got what to do the summary.

  2. Hello Mrs Larking I am on hit the button and I got 30/30 I am so happy that I have got 30/30. At first I was practicing my 12 times tables with my mum and then I went on hit the button and got 30/30

  3. I have enjoyed today coming to school in our PJ’s and sharing stories with mars and foundation.
    I am enjoying reading our class book because I am also reading it as my book so it is fun listening to it twice.

  4. Hey Mrs Larkin, I was so gutted on Wednesday for I didn’t get full marks but it was nice to get full marks every other time we have done our spellings! In who let the Gods out In the sentences I have found a few dashes.
    Mrs Porshley – plum
    Dark – pink
    Nick – names
    Cardigan-clad Killer
    Ah – hello
    Weapons – grade
    Bottle – lensed glasses
    Per – manently
    Three – week – old
    disgrace – ful
    dark – rimmed eyes
    all – time favorite prank
    Boil knew- but could never prove – that Elliot was responsible for last year.
    Well – come on, then?
    Hooper – see me after school.
    Mum – lovely to see you.
    Mum – where are you?
    There’s more were that came from in the other chapters!

    1. I know you were disappointed; they were tricky homophones, weren’t they?
      I love that you’ve found all of these hyphens and dashes in you reading. I read the final book last night – in one sitting – and I noticed quite a few in that one too. Maybe Maz Evans really likes using them!!

  5. I also think Maz Evans liked to use them too. Homophones are quite tricky but once you get used to them we will get them! Yesterday, I enjoyed making my Victoria sponge cake I hope everyone enjoyed eating it!

  6. hello miss Larkin, it is Alexcia, Lakisha’s sister. are you having a nice holiday.I am doing ok how about you.
    maths I learnt in year 3
    2×2=4 5×3=15 10 x 11 = 110 10 x 12 =120 10 x 10 = 100 100-1 =99

    1. Hi Alexcia, nice to hear from you πŸ™‚ I am having a lovely holiday; thank you for asking πŸ™‚ So far I have done lots of catching up with friends and family, I went on a big bike ride with my kids and some friends yesterday, done some boring jobs like cleaning up and decorating, re-watched the original Dumbo film ready for going to see the new one and today I had a gigantic pile of pancakes for lunch!! And we’ve still got loads of the holiday left πŸ™‚ Have you been enjoying the break? It’s good to see you are keeping your maths learning fresh in your memory – what else have you learnt this year?

  7. Hey Mrs Larkin, I hope you are having a nice holiday, I am reading Against all Gods again because I have finished my schoolbook beyond all odyssey.

    1. Hey lovely πŸ™‚ They’re so enjoyable that they’re worth re-reading, aren’t they?! I’m having a nice holiday so far. I’ve managed to squeeze in two grown up books already but I was a bit naughty and stayed up really really late because I just couldn’t put them down! I’m just thinking which book I’m going to read next: I think I might go for the third Cogheart book which is called Sky Circus. I think you’d enjoy that series too – the main character is a girl in this one who gets into all sorts of tricky situations!

  8. Hey Mrs Larkin, they are so enjoyable to re-read! I also like to re-read them because the first time you read the book the words that you don’t know the meaning of you can look them up so then the second time you read the book you will know what every single word means! Friday, till Sunday I am going to ingolmells and when I get back home we are going in my aunties hot tub and also having a BBQ. I think I would like to read the Cogheart books. That is great to hear you are having a nice holiday. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

    1. I definitely think you understand more on a second reading! Sounds like you’re going to have a brill weekend… have fun! πŸ™‚

  9. Thanks I have had a lovely time Mrs Larkin. Today I have been to a lovely ice cream parlour somewhere near bawtry. But on the way there they were lots of houses and churches that had headers and stretchers, patterns above the windows, bay windows and patterns on the fronts of the houses roofs.

  10. Hey Mrs Larkin, I have just been on the game for the spellings and it is good to put your confidence up on cious and tious. I hope you had a good break.

    1. Ah that’s brill! I wanted to show it to everyone today but we ran out of time! Will you remind me tomorrow?
      I had a really lovely holiday full of all of my favourite things…lots of late nights watching TV and reading books followed by lots of lie-ins in the mornings!! Loads of time with my kids and tons of chocolate πŸ˜†

  11. P.s have a lovely weekend tomorrow I will be going swimming with my dad I am not sure on some of the questions on the math one but I might be able to ask my dad because my mum wasn’t sure on the ones that I was stuck on.

    1. Thank you, you too!! Just give it your best shot and if you need to, blog me the question number and I’ll give you some tips πŸ™‚
