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.

    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!
