Mr Shaw's numeracy group are going to have regular arithmetic homework. Nothing too much, just six questions. There will be a variety of questions and the aim will be to complete them as quickly as possible and of course to get them all right. This should only take about 5 mins to complete.
Timestable grids need to be taken regularly and TT Rockstars is a must!
Spellings to be learnt for Friday test.
Please make sure homework tasks are being completed - especially when doing the worksheets. Ensure that it is put in your school bag so that it is returned to class for us all to mark and go through it. If you are unsure about any of the questions, you MUST find someone who can help you - and that can include mum, dad, brother, sister, one of your friends and even Google.
Just recently, some of us are not being as thorough and as careful as we should be in making sure we take it home, complete it and then return. Remember, that this is all prep for going to high school - if homework isn't returned at the high school no excuses will be accepted by them and you will receive the dreaded detentions!!!!

An adult MUST speak with either Miss Wilby or Miss Sutcliffe and check that contact phone numbers are correct. Medication must be passed to the teachers and this includes the travel sickness medication. Remember guys to bring a small daypack for any stuff you may wish to have on the coach with you. This pack will have to be carried by yourself from the coach on the 40 minute walk to the centre. No phones, cameras or sprays of any kind can be taken.
For those staying in Ossett .... you will be having a fantastic time baking, swimming, creating, designing, digging, competing, building, squishing, dipping and eating!
You will need your swimming kits on Tuesday.
You will need your P.E. kits on Wednesday.
On Thursday, Mr Brown may ask you to wear old clothes if you are working in the garden. The others are going to be very jealous when they hear what you have been up to...
Swimming next Tuesday 12th December
In swimming, we are going to be developing our life-saving skills and how to stay safe should we fall into cold water. Because of this, the children need to bring pyjamas or a t-shirt and shorts, as well as their swimming costumes. No denim, onesies or fleece. Thank-you.
On Monday 6th November, year 6 walked into Ossett to visit the Cenotaph because we will be unable to attend the Service of Remembrance as it falls on a Saturday. We were honoured to be joined by Sergeant Peter Waters who has officiated the Remembrance Service in Ossett for many years. To our surprise, Sergeant Waters performed a full service for us, including the minute's silence and invited us all to join in the exhortation. Two children were then chosen to lay the wreath on behalf of all children in all schools in Ossett. All the children then planted a cross at the base of the cenotaph. Each cross bore the name of one of the 382 men from Ossett who lost their lives in the Great War. It was a moving and poignant ceremony which all children felt honoured to be a part of.
Many thanks to Sergeant Waters for enabling us to experience a Remembrance Service.
