Swordfish class will be reading and studying texts wrtten by the wonderful author Michael Mopurgo.  

Our current learning focus is: understanding the different types of conjunctions, pronouns and clauses - especially the use of coordinate and subordinate conjunctions, main and subordinate clauses and revising relative pronouns and relative clauses. 

https://www.englishlearninglabs.com/tag/conjunctions/ - please visit thus web site for help with conjunctions and an explanation of the two types: subordinating and coordinating.

Did you know that there are only 7 coordinating conjunctions? You can use the mnemonic 'FANBOYS' to help you learn them.

Spelling Issues - using apostrophes

Year 6:Long Multiplication

This video shows the method that Year 6 will be taught for the written calculation of long multiplication (there are also additional short multiplication and division reminders too).

The explanation makes reference to the importance of understanding the correct place value labels for the digits and where to put the additional tens and hundreds generated (at the base of each row of the calculation) as the partial products are completed.

The relevant NC14 objective for Year 6 pupils is:
I can multiply 4-digit numbers by a 2-digit number using the written method of long multiplication
e.g. 4037 x 34

Home Learning

It is expected that pupils will complete 4 Mathletics tasks, set by Mrs. Johnstone each week, which are linked to the mathematical learning for that week or previous weeks.

 

Pupils should read daily and record in their reading diary as appropriate - personal response comments with explanations about the reading are preferable to number of pages read and generic expressions, such as 'I liked it.', 'It.was good/boring.' 

 

Each week. pupils should bring home their Read Write Inc. (RWI) spelling journals for parents to check and ensure the misspellings are learnt. use. The class is now on the Year 5 units.

 

Other homework will be weekly maths and english in preparation for SATs. The main requirement for the teacher is to know when there are difficulties with questions on these sheets or if they were too easy and not challenging enough. They will not be marked regularly and it is up to the pupil to approach their teacher if they require support or feedback about their work.
