11.2.19 We had a lovely Aspirations morning. Assembly was great and then we welcomed adults to the classroom and were able to ask lots of questions - they all had very interesting jobs and lots to tell us : a designer/inventor, make up artist, an officer from Wakefield District Housing, a CSI officer and a premiership football referee !

Wb 4.2.19

 

Make sure homework tasks are being completed.

 

Arithmetic at home - set your own sums. Multiplication, division and fraction calculations - just a couple each night - are not only a great way of developing and improving the methods and processes but also your speed and agility with timestables.

 

We need shoe boxes. Big ones not the diddy type. Everyone needs one. If you are able to get more than one that would be great.

A pleasant afternoon making vegetable soup with Mrs Yates aka Miss Fourie.

Homework wb 21.1.19

 

If anybody has any books at home that include info on any of the explorers we are researching, it would be great if you brought them in so we could use them.

And ... Sam Learning.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY !

Please ensure you are completing and returning english and numeracy worksheets.

 

Vital that spellings are learnt for Friday tests.

Final week and Christmas Hols

Party day is Tuesday - bring clothes to change into. 

We will try to do PE on Thursday.

Christmas jumper day on the last day.

 

We've certainly all worked hard this term and all of us deserve a break, to enjoy Christmas and to recharge our Double A batteries.

We are not sending a pile of homework home with you but we are asking that you do use SAM Learning over the break. Some of us have not been using the internet learning programme - it is really important that you make it part of your weekly homework routine.

Over Christmas we expect just two hours worth of task work - remember that you have to complete the tasks for it to register task time.

Have a lovely holiday; enjoy your presents - but most of all enjoy the family time.

MERRY CHRISTMAS :-)

Homework wb 10.12.18

Please make sure you are learning your spellings - just 5 mins every evening will help to make the spellings much more familiar. There is no doubt that the spellings are difficult and this is why a little bit often is better than trying to learn them on a Thursday the night before.

 

Mr Shaw's numeracy group are getting their homework on a Friday and are expected to return it on the Monday so that the class can go through it together. This means that all of the children, no matter how busy their weekend might have been, has had time to complete it ( should take no more than 20mins - and in most cases even less ). We have told the children to ask for help from mum/dad/older sibling if they are unsure or confused - but at the same time it is important that they are trying to fathom out the puzzles and problems themselves - this all helps them to become confident mathematicians.

 

Final note - We are asking if all of the Y6 children could bring in 50p. Party day is Tuesday 18th December and the money will go towards juice, crisps etc. many thanks.

Homework wb 3.12.18

 

Now that the IT suite is out of action it is important that you are making time at home to do some Sam Learning, TTRockstars and My Mini Maths.

 

Please make sure that you are completing and returning grammar and numeracy worksheets on the day that you are being asked to. Just a few people are not being as thorough as they have been. If there is a reason for why you cannot complete it at home, you can always do it during morning or lunch break and even when you come in for registration in the morning.

 

We hope everybody is enjoying their reading and making it a part of their going to bed routine.

Homework wb 19.11 18

 

It is good to see homework being returned on time and completed - keep it up.

 

Please make sure sufficient time is being given to the learning of spellings. We know they can be tricky but little and often is better than trying to learn them the night before.

 

Hope everybody is enjoying their reading and remembering to bring in the Home Reading Record Book.

 

Mr Shaw's numeracy group will start to get maths worksheet homework similar to the grammar worksheets.  If you cannot do a particular question or are finding the question a bit tricky you must ask for someone's help at home - Mum, dad, older brother or sister, grandma or grandad, maybe even the dog ;-)   and always remember there is Google to remind you how to do something or what something might mean.

Like the grammar, we will expect you to complete the homework the night you are given it and to return it the next day so that we can go through it together. You may get the homework on a Friday - this will give you a couple of days but it must be returned on the Monday.

 

Remembrance celebration with Mr Waters and Mr Wakefield from the British Legion. All of the children were very respectful as we listened to the prayers, The Last Post, held the one minute silence and then The Reveille. They shall not grow old, as we who are left grow old: age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.

Homework wb 22.10.18 and half term holiday

 

We've had a pretty good start to the year with lots of hard work from lots of people and I think we all deserve a break now.

Well, what a blast we had at Robin Wood. Everybody made the trip loads of fun. Here are the photos that Mr Shaw took of his group - there will be more to follow.

Next week...

 

On Monday, RobinWooders need to go straight to the hall for half past seven with their cases. 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...

Hi everybody.

 

Such a shame about the Easter weather ... but at least everybody will have got the chance to do their homework on these rainy afternoons   #noexcusesmakesureitsinyourbagsyouknowitmakessense;-)

Easter Hols

Hope everybody has a lovely Easter break - we've worked hard and now deserve a breather !

 

All numeracy and literacy groups have been given homework which we expect to be completed and returned for the first day back after the holiday.

 

Mr Shaw's numeracy group have two arithmetic tests - one for each week. Set yourself a time limit of 30 minutes and aim to do the very best that you can. Make sure you check carefully when you have finished.

 

Remember what I said about real life maths - do it when you go to the shop for mum, at the take away with dad and wherever you might visit where you have to pay for things.

 

Everybody has grammar worksheets and other bits and pieces.

 

Try to do a bit of Sam Learning and any other online maths/literacy games. Every little bit will help.

If you are finding questions and problems difficult when doing your homework tasks, can you please make sure that you are seeking help from mum/dad or brother/sister and even grandma/grandad. If they are not available then there is always the option of using Google searches. It is really important that the homework is carried out carefully, neatly and above all accurately.

 

We are going to need plenty of newspapers and a full roll of loo paper for our DT project. There are still a few people who have not got a shoebox.

We had a great morning meeting and talking with some very interesting people - a barrister, bio chemical scientist, a design engineer, mental health nurse, head of Wakefield District Housing and a police inspector. All helped to inspire the children and gave them a great insight into their careers.

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.

Well done to the Y6 netball team. We played at the High Five tournament at Southdale along with Gawthorpe, Holy Trinity and Towngate. We won two and lost two and ended up coming third out of the five teams. Well done to Southdale who came first.
