Homework is sent home to either act as revision for previous topics or consolidation of learning outside of the classroom. Please be involved in your child's learning as much as possible, but please allow them to complete it on their own merit. Children - Your homework is set on Thursday/Friday and is expected back on Tuesday/Wednesday.
Here in 6KP, we believe that reading is not only an important part of learning, but an important part of everyday and future life. To deconstructing instructions, catching a bus, setting up Sky TV from following a cookbook - reading is immersed with everyday life. Reading allows us to become critical and reflective. No one is born a perfect reader, reading takes time, practice and commitment - but it is fun too!
Following on from the wonderful conversations from parents evening, parents were interested in how to help their children at home - especially with reading. Above is a useful page regarding questions to ask your child. Just pick two or three from each section and you're away!
In Maths this term, we are learning and tackling various methods of short and long division. In Maths, efficient knowledge of times tables is massively important. It is involved in: fractions, division, ratio, percentage, algebra and other aspects. If children's time tables are up to speed, they will always improve in other areas of Maths.
A massively fun way of learning your times tables is through Times Table Rockstars. This allows children to practice their times tables in a fun and familiar environment. If you're fed up with your child in front of Fortnite, just throw them infront of TT Rockstars and leave them to it. We are all hooked!
In QFR this term, we are reading Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian. This follows the story of a young evacuee from London called William Beech. He finds himself pushed into Mr Tom Oakley's life. It soon transpires that a little infant scared of the world becomes very fond of this grumpy Victor Meldrew type character...and vice versa. Please ask your child about this book and learn about this thrilling and sensitive story about a little boy in the times of the Second World War.
Interesting fact, 6KP discovered that the main characters are based on trees. The author was admiring trees one day and wondered what an oak tree, and a beech tree, would be like as a character. Therefore forming Tom Oakley and William Beech!
