Year 6 Mock Assessment Week
Homework - 4.10.21
4.10.21 - Art: Clay Poppies
The children will be writing their free choice non-chronological reports. They will use their knowledge of the structural, organisational and grammatical features required to write an effect report to be able to construct their own based on a personal interest. They will be writing informally, making sure to target their writing to a specific audience.
We will be continuing our learning of how to the use the formal methods for the four operations. We will focus on elements of strand which include: multiples and factors; prime and composite numbers as well as square and cube numbers.
We will be continuing learning about the geography of Europe. So far, we have learnt about the countries and capital cities of Europe, how the Prime Meridian governs our understanding of time zones and how to study relief, resource and population maps. We will put all of this knowledge together to write a persuasive, informative leaflet to visit a European city of choice.
Find information about Year 6 homework above. Please email if you would like your child to receive paper copies, since we are trying to watch our carbon footprint.
We will be learning and practising the 'Week 5' spellings from the document attached below. We will also be practising words from the Y5-6 Common Exception list. Some children will also have their own targeted spellings to practise at home.
The order I will be assessing the children is as follows:
2x, 5x, 10x, 4x, 8x, 3x, 6x, 9x, 11x, 12x, 7x
They will then move onto mixed questioning, followed by division facts.
If you would like to follow the same format, then you can practise the times table that your child is being assessed on/practising to learn at home.
Above is a link to the 'Knowl Hill C of E Academy' login page for Times Tables Rockstars.
