Welcome to Term 3,
We hope you have had a restful Christmas and are ready to start term 3, either remotely or in school. We will be uploading work onto SeeSaw each day.
We will be sending out Purple Mash log ins during week 2 to access our ICT curriculum. https://purplemash.com/kingsnorth
English: Weekly tasks will be uploaded each week. These will cover a range of genres and styles of writing. Handwriting tasks will be set so that children maintain their neat and joined handwriting.
Reading: Children must continue to read everyday. When you have completed an AR book, quiz online - Link to AR quiz. If you have completed all your AR books, why not try the following:
Read an E-book on Oxford Owl username: bunzl password: peter
Listen to an audiobook for free on Audible Stories
Visit the Kingsnorth YouTube page to listen to a teacher read a book.
Reading Comprehension: Reading comprehensions with questions will be available on SeeSaw.
Maths: Children will be focusing on converting units. Children will look at both metric and imperial measurements.
It would really help to support our learning in class if you could continue to practise times tables with your children. www.timestables.com Knowing these and being able to confidently recall them underpins the majority of the Maths in the Year 6 curriculum and can really boost progress.
Science: Revision of ecosystems using Oak Academy.
History: Researching Ancient Egypt.
PE/Steps 2 Summit: It's really important that we are continuing with some moderate exercise during our lockdown.
