6S Complete Their First Week
Friday 7th September | 2 comments
Welcome to the 6S weekly blog! You may have already read a post about how to use your planners!
A note to parents…
6S will be going sailing on Monday 17th September. We would really appreciate a parent volunteer or two who would need to be available for the whole day. Please could you email Mr Sharp (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in volunteering on this trip. Thank you.
At the start of the blog, you will always find this week’s homework. Children should already be able to find their homework in their homework book. This week, however, there is no homework but I would like children to carry on revising words from the Year 3 and 4 spelling list and access Times Table Rockstars to keep practising those times tables!
In maths this week, children have begun their work on place value. Children have don some work with 7-digit-numbers: reading, writing, ordering and comparing. Having a strong understanding of place value really aids children with the rest of their work in maths and I am pleased to report that the class have really impressed me with how hard they have worked this week.
In RE, children have looked at the beginnings of Sikhism. They have watched a video of the story of Guru Nanak and have learned about the Mool Mantar. The Mool Mantar means ‘basic teaching’ and is found at the beginning of every section of the Guru Granth Sahib (Sikh Scriptures). It is repeated each day during early morning prayer. Children challenged themselves to write their own teachings on how they thought people should live their lives.
In music, children have started learning their song for the first half-term: I’ll Be There by Jackson 5. Music will usually take place on a Tuesday afternoon; children who play an instrument are encouraged to bring theirs with them during these sessions.
A blog all about Star Wars Day can be found here!
Well done to all of 6S this week. Mr Sharp, Ms Barraclough, Mrs Elam and Mrs Harding have all been impressed with how hard the children have worked. Can they keep it up?
