Reading in Year 6

In Year 6, we want you to LOVE reading and read books which you ENJOY reading and WANT to read.  We have lots of brilliant books in the classroom and there are also great books within the school which you can borrow.

Remember to record the books that you have read on your personal 'Reading Bookshelf' sheet, recommend books to others that you have really enjoyed and ask an adult to photocopy the spine of the book to add to our 'Reading Pile'.

 

Parents and carers: we encourage the children to bring books home; even those available in the classroom.  We do however ask the children to look after these books and return them once they have finished, as many of them have been bought specifically for the class.

Where do we read?

Here are some of the interesting and inventive places we have been reading!  These photos are really making us smiley .  

We'd love to see even more photos.  You can either bring your photo in, or email it to to office@balliolschool.co.uk with the subject ‘Y6 Reading Challenge’ so that it gets sent to us.

Maths in Year 6

Here are some useful websites which the children can use at home to help them with their Maths:

 

 

This is a great website that children can use to practice their times tables!

https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student/17733

 

My Maths - This is not just for homework! You can log on and access lots of lessons and activities as well as games. The lessons are particularly useful as they explain what you need to do and give you examples to try.

https://www.mymaths.co.uk/

 

Corbett Maths Primary - A fantastic website. Many of the resources can be printed, but could also be looked at on screen with practise being done on paper.

5-a-day: 5 questions to practise every day at different levels. Perfect for practising those important, basic skills as well as other areas of Year 6 Maths.

Videos: Videos to explain how to tackle different skills, followed by questions to answer.

Worksheets: These link to the videos mentioned above.

Quizzes: Link to Kahoot quizzes.

https://corbettmathsprimary.com/

 

My Mini Maths - This is a really useful website which can be used every day, or can be used to focus on areas which you would like to practise more. Many areas include videos to watch and there are always questions to have a go at answering.

https://myminimaths.co.uk/year-6-mini-maths/

 

IXL - A fantastic website.  You can pick an area to work on, look at examples or explanations and also answer some example questions. To use the website for free, you are limited to a certain number of questions, but it's definitely worth looking at every now and then.

https://uk.ixl.com/math/year-6

 

BBC Bitesize - A great website.  Again, you can choose an area to look at. There are videos, explanations and short quizzes to help you.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/subjects/z826n39

 

Topmarks - You can search for games that link to specific areas of Maths. Look out for the age range underneath all games; it will give you a good idea of how useful it is.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/

 

Maths Is Fun - This site is really good at explaining things and gives you practice questions at the bottom of each page.

https://www.mathsisfun.com/

 

Online Maths Dictionary - http://www.amathsdictionaryforkids.com/dictionary.html

Pobble allows all children to become published authors! Children from all over the world can read and comment on your child's work if it is uploaded to pobble. In Eagle class we think it is great, but if you would like any further information then please come and speak to us. If you haven't already, please give permission for your child's work to be published so that they have the opportunity to become a published author!

 

These children have already had their work published this year:

* Laura and Isaiah for their letters to Shackleton, applying to be a member of the crew

*Rameen and Olivia for their 'Pack Ice' poems

* Jahiya and Bianka for their non-chronological reports about the Arctic and Antarctica

* Olivia and Maddie for their Titanic writing; considering how the 1st Class and 3rd Class passengers differed

*Alessandra for her diary entry about the Titanic sinking

 

If your work is yet to be published, keep working hard! All of Eagle Class are fantastic writers and you will become a published author this year smiley

What we've been up to!

Polar Explorer Day

On Thursday 31st October, Simon (a polar explorer) came in to talk to Year 6 all about the Polar Regions. He has been on many expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctica and the children found out lots about our Topic! (Exploration and Discovery).
