English

This week in English we wrote a letter to Mrs. Cole and Mr. Palmer all about us and what we like. As part of our theme over the next 2 weeks we will be writing persuasive letters to the Victorian Prime Minister, to persuade him to close the workhouses. We have began by analysing lots of persuasive letters and finding the key features. One thing we discovered was that we all need to do is write a really good introduction to our letters to persuade the reader to keep reading! 

Topic Work

We have been learning all about the Victorians and the life of children from workhouses and what they ate, what they did etc. Workhouses were made to bring poor people (paupers) in to earn money by untying oakum and other tedious tasks. They would have to work a whole 10hrs a day! They only got to see their families for half an hour on Sundays and apart from that, they weren’t allowed to see them. Did you know that Queen Victoria was only 4ft 11”! 

“I laughed when we found out about how Queen Victoria loved sponge cake. Or Victoria Sponge!” Oak Gilbert 

Maths 

In Maths we have been learning about integers and putting them in grids with greater than and lesser than symbols to determine which integer is bigger. We have all enjoyed the first full week back at Hall Meadow! 

“I find the Maths work really interesting and it has a range of ability levels to choose from” James Marchant 

Reminders 

Friday awards make sure you come and see them; this week it’s Poppy, Oak and Kaaviyashree. 
P.E. Thursday and Friday: Make sure your child has their P.E. kit on these days. 
Parent afternoons : Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 

We look forward to a brand new week starting on the 16th September.

How you can help!

Year 6 are given weekly homework that is set on a Friday and handed back in for marking by the following Thursday. This consists of an English and Maths task based on the learning in class that week. The children are also given weekly spellings to learn, which are tested on a Friday.

Home Learning

Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read widely and frequently. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis.  
Ensuring that your child is fluent with their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practiced; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
