I am delighted with the response to our new IXL maths homework. I am able to monitor what the children are completing and I am impressed with their enthusiasm. Long may it continue.
With regards to the English homework, I am afraid not everyone is performing to expected year 6 standards. Rather than name names at this point, I would like to thank those children who have produced high quality sentences (see example above). To support those who are not, please could parents/carers check homework for:
- Six sentences (some children have not completed all six words)
- Capital letters in the correct places and full stops (should not be missing in year 6)
- Correct meaning of the word has been used (there is a theme which has been World War Two for the last two weeks and is Science focussed this week)
- A range of sentence openings
- Neat, joined handwriting.
I would appreciate it if you could initial their sentences to show that you have checked for the above and I will add a signature line in next week’s homework.
Thank you for your continued support.
I hope your child has settled back into life in year 6. I know that we (adults included) are particularly enjoying our World War Two focus. In fact, we have been working so hard that I haven’t had a chance to make contact yet this term so I do apologise. Please feel free to pop in for a chat at anytime if you have any issues or queries.
You will find attached our new style homework and your child has been issued with a log in for www.uk.ixl.com. I can check exactly what they have done and I will be monitoring their progress each week. Any issues with access please let an adult know and your child can complete their homework in school at lunchtime.
In other news, PE is Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has their kit. We will be going outside for at least one of those sessions, even when the weather turns colder.
