Key Skills 18th November

English– carry on with your presentation about ‘your element’.  Two weeks to go; I’d better start mine!


Mr Prosser’s group- short and long multiplication practice, there are 15 questions on your sheet and Mr P has asked that you do at least 10.  An extra challenge on the bottom of the page also needs completing, please.

Mrs Greener/ Mrs de Board’s group- you have specific multiplication and division tasks to complete on mathletics please.

Have a good weekend

Key Skills 11th November 2016

English- your project for the next three weeks is to prepare for a mini-presentation about yourself.

 We would like to know about an interest or talent that you have. It might be speaking a different language, going to karate, your artwork or writing computer programmes. 

Whatever your element is, we want to hear about it!

 Each member of the class will have five minutes to present their information the week beginning 5th December so make sure you’re ready!

Maths- We are having a big push on fluent recall of x tables’ facts.   Please complete the sheet you chose and spend 10 minutes a day practising the facts you need to learn.

 Can you come up with any tricks to help us all to improve our recall?

My favourite is:

I ate and I ate until I was sick on the floor.

   Eight times eight is sixty four

       8         x     8     =       64

Mr Prosser’s group had a halving and doubling activity this week.

We Will Remember Them


Mrs Greener and I are often proud of our class; when they work together well, the friendships they have, mastering a tough concept in maths or working hard at home on their key skills.  Today was one of those goose bump inducing moments of pride as I watched Year 6 present their remembrance assembly to an audience of around 400 people.  From the breath taking dance to the quality of the poems, from the confidence in performing to the detailed artwork on display.  You made me proud to work with you.

Have a great weekend.
