I hope you are all enjoying your Easter holidays, at least the weather has been fabulous even if we have been a bit house-bound!
Just a reminder that all work will now be posted on Google Classroom. I'm delighted that nearly everyone has managed to log onto the Class page and some of you have been chatting away already! If anyone is still missing their login details then a quick email or phone call to the school office might help.
Work begins from 8.30am on Monday - just for those early birds amongst you! Until then, take care
Thursday 2nd April
Hello again Maple! We are now up and running on Google Classroom, so please check Parentmail for your login details and get yourself added to Maple as soon as you can! We are hoping to have a class chat (and maybe do the register ) at 4pm today.
In the meantime, I hope everyone is still keeping well and safe. I am about to upload the latest Mathletics certificates (I will put them on here and on Google Classroom) and will be gradually posting less here and more there - it has been lovely to chat to you after 2 weeks' silence!
Prodigy news... Max B has stormed into a commanding lead now, followed by Ethan and Charlie respectively. Molly-Mai and Morwenna are holding on after that.. but quite a number of you haven't registered on the scoreboard. In these strange times I don't expect anything to be 'normal' but just remember Prodigy is there if you should want or be able tp stretch your Maths brains for a while.
Missing you all very much and looking forward to a good chat on Google Classroom soon - I won't be asking what homework you have done (although we will work out a way for you to send me whatever you want me to see!) but would rather know that you are safe, well and have been behaving!
Take care everyone,
Weds 1st April
Happy April Fool's Day! I hope you haven't been playing too many pranks this morning.
Prodigy news: The top 3 slots at the moment are filled by: Max B, Molly-Mai and Charlie Welcome on board Charlie and fantastic work Max, I do believe you've only got one question wrong so far this week!!!
Dreamscape - not so many of you competing on this, but well done Ella for your consistency. Superb effort!
Your Maths lesson today is about using a protractor. If you haven't got one at home, answer the questions you can and for the measuring ones just estimate the size of the angle to the nearest 5 degrees. Use your rounding skills to check your answers.
I read through my instructions for setting up Google classroom yesterday so my homework today is to get on and have a go!! Hopefully you will get logon details via Parentmail in the next few days and then we will see how we get on - I am looking forward to hearing back from you as I have no idea if anyone is reading what I put on here If any of you do not get a Parentmail by Monday, I'd suggest a quick email to school to see if you can get hold of yours that way.
That's all for now - keep your fingers crossed I can get to grips with my homework!
*** Update!!! Pleased to announce I managed to complete my homework!! A welcome message awaits you on Google Classroom, a message is scheduled to arrive there first thing tomorrow and your Easter project extravaganza will (hopefully) be appearing on Monday morning. I even got a message through from Theo - looking forwards to hearing from the rest of you now!
Take care everyone,
Monday 30th March

We are heading out for our daily walk shortly, wave if you spot us! Bo would love to see you - from a safe distance.
*Edit... well we didn't spot any of you but we did catch up with Will SA - nice to see him!
Hopefully you've all had a look at today's Maths lesson (find it at..) https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ and now know a bit about scale factors.

Prodigy top 3 are now: Morwenna, Molly-Mai and Kennedy. I think I will be publishing logins again on here just in case those of you not playing have lost yours.... Remember to go to play.prodigygame.com to login.
Good to see some new Mathletics certificates being earned too - awesome work Maple!! I will put them up on Monday, so you still have time to add more points
Work for next week is now available on the Home Learning page - for Maths don't forget to go to https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ I hope you have had a look at the ratio lessons there already - if not, try to go through as much as you can by Monday in case they delete them to put up the next 5 days' work.
Make sure you are getting your daily exercise - get out and enjoy the sunshine!! Stay safe
