Moving Forward, Aiming High!

Miss Campbell's Group

17.01.2019 WOW! My arithmetic group are in full steam working through areas across number. Over the past two weeks they have been able to identify the value of each digit in a number given to three decimal places and multiply numbers by 10,100 and 1,000. They have been securing their multiplication, using a written formal method (please can all children practise and learn their times tables at home). Over more recent days the children have moved onto percentages work. They have been calculating problems for example, 15% of 360. Next week we are going to be moving on to division, including decimal numbers. 

I continue to be really proud of all of my arithmetic group! smiley 

 

My reading group have been looking at the structure of a poem and the language content within a poem. They have also been looking at the history of the telephone box. They did not realise that the telephone boxes were how people communicating before mobile phones! sad  They are continuing to develop their pace over time and they are now beginning to secure 2 mark test like questions. Well done to all in my group. 

 

My reasoning group have been looking at temperature and negative numbers. They have also been looking at multi-step problems using the four operations. I have been so impressed with their colloboration and team work over the past few days. They have supported each other with word problems and they have also had a go at teaching too! Ava Mansfield did an excellent job explaining how she calculating her answer to quite a tricky problem, well done! no

09.01.2019 Welcome back! So today my new arithmetic maths group really impressed me with their skills on addition and subtraction with larger numbers. My reasoning group looked at number sequences and collaboratively worked together to work out how to answer a test based question. In particular Lucas and Hannah persevered and achieved our learning objective. Showing great confidence and understanding of the task, well done both!  Whilst my reading group began to look at a poem, analysing it’s language and vocabulary (they did this really well). Again in particular Tyler and Harry worked together and used a dictionary well to support their understanding of unknown words in context.

 I am looking forward to an exciting Spring Term 1 and can’t wait to see the children continue to grow in confidence.

Keep checking back to look at your child’s work...

Getting our debate on for our new English genre

07.11.18 Welcome back Year 6! Wow Autumn Term 1 has been and gone and we are into Autumn Term 2 already... This half term the children will be working on lots of new and exciting things across both Mathematics and English. In Maths we will be covering percentages, fractions , devision and multiplication. Whilst in Writing we will be looking at whether or not Graffiti is art or vandalism through a debate and a  persuasive letter. In reading the children will continue to work through a range of text types and genres.

Keep looking out for exciting pieces of work from the children... thank you for your continued support last half term and here’s to another successful half term! 

18.10.18 This week the children have been completing assessments and I am really proud of my Reading and Maths group so far. All of the children since September have shown great resilience and perseverance to improve from their starting points. My writing group next week will be editing and improving their trenches description - watch this space for their final piece!

Once again WELL DONE to all of the children in my groups - I am very proud of you smiley

Each day a child from my maths group is chosen as they 'smashed' their maths work from the previous day! The children are all working hard on place value. This week we have focused on rounding and comparing numbers. I am really enjoying their positive can do attitudes. I wonder who will be crowned next Hulk Smash Winner ...
