Home learning (08.04.22)
Firstly, you have had an amazing term where we are so pleased to see how well you have taken up the challenge to work as hard as you can and push yourself to achieve as much as we believe you can! You all deserve the rest and overall we want to make sure you take time out: the next couple of terms are going to hard work (as well as fun!) to prepare you ready for KS3 and your new schools!
Below you will find the tasks to complete at home during the holidays.
Home Learning Tasks
The following tasks are to make sure you keep the confidence you have gained this term in preparation for your end of KS2 assessment.
(1) Review the practice SAT papers you have brought home (and were asked to by your teacher!).
Have a go at the questions again, especially the ones you got wrong and are the easier questions from the beginning of the tests. Use a different coloured pen so we can see what you have corrected and changed. Do this with an adult too so they can see what you are expected to do at the end of Year 6 and will continue to do in Year 7.
(2) If you took home or were given some practice sheets, then have a go completing these too so you don't forget these key skills over the holidays.
Your teacher gave you some spare sheets and the 2016 maths SAT paper to use to practice with.
(3) Maths arithmetic skills
Quick recall of times tables and Learn Its is crucial so continue to use TTRS remembering to know the facts off the top of your head as an instant recall fact like you do for something like 1 + 1 = 2. You should be recalling facts, including Learn Its like 7 + 8 = 15, in less than 5 seconds!
(4) Reading your personal reading book.
Discuss what you have read; write a detailed comment in your diary using some of the VIPERS skills like we do in reading sessions; stop and think about times when you don't understand a word or sentence; and also read lots of different types of text.
Get an adult to answer you questions at home about what you have read, what words you learnt and explain to them why characters did what they did or how they felt. When you read non-fiction, tell them new facts you have learnt.
