Week 4 Update
Room 4 - Year 6
Monday at Midhurst School. If wet postponement date is Tuesday.
In maths this week we are looking at our PAT maths assessment that we
did last week. We will be working through the questions to learn from our
mistakes. We will use our test results to direct our learning over the next
week or two as we fix our mistakes and fill any gaps. We will also
consolidate our division strategies.
We have been collecting notes over the last week and have planned our
information report. Planning is a super important step in writing as it helps
us to organise our ideas and gives us guidance when it comes to the actual
writing part. This week we begin turning our notes into sentences and
paragraphs. We will be looking to develop our PEE paragraphs and using
connectives to add more detail to our writing. Reading has become part of
our writing programme as we read a range of sources of information on
our topics. We are also completing a reading assessment to see how we
We began some maths art last week looking at rotation, reflection and
translation. The children has to create a strip of paper art which we divided
into eighths. They then created a design in ⅛ which was then reflected and
translated. This week we look to design some Thai Mandalas using
symmetry. We are going to create a design and then transfer it onto
printing foam to create a printing plate. We will then learn how to use our
stencil to create our manadala. This art will run throughout the next week
Most of our afternoon sessions will be busy preparing our production item.
Kia Kaha with Jono
We have some Kia Kaha sessions with Jono which we will be finishing off
on Tuesdays at 11am.
There was a link to a questionnaire in last weeks newsletter about your
child/children’s learning. It would be fantastic if you could all fill this in at
some point. It won’t take long and will give us some great information!
Home Learning this week
There is only reading and spelling words this week for homework.
Pillow case or plastic bag
Each child needs a named pillow case or plastic bag to store their
production costume in at school. If your child could bring this into class this
week that would be great.
