Welcome to Year 6 - OWLS
Homework will be set every Friday and should be completed by the following Thursday. Any children that require additional support should feel welcome to seek advice from their class teachers and are urged to attend homework club for extra help.
Pupils have all been provided with Mathletics usernames and passwords. We encourage the children to access this provision outside of school. Link to website: http://www.mathletics.co.uk/
Activities and assessments will be placed onto Mathletics as often as it is deemed necessary.
Don't forget to log onto your Spellodrome account weekly to unlock new certificates, get yourself onto the leader board and play exciting spelling games!
Children are invited to enter the school building at 8:45am, allowing them to find time to settle in to the day, revise a new topic, discuss their learning with a member of staff or read.
Pupils have also been provided with a Username and Password to a new Maths Reasoning website: https://diagnosticquestions.com/Account/Login
We are learning about Growth Mindset. The main focus of Growth Mindset is to say "I will keep trying as mistakes are a part of learning"
As a school, we have bought into a new online ICT platform called Gooseberry Planet. All children have been provided with a username and password and we would also encourage parents to get involved!
