I would like to remind you that if you need new reading books, we do have lots available at school near the offices so you can come and choose one during the school day. We also have more Home Learning Journals if you are nearing the end of your book.
Thank you to all of you who have emailed this week, I have really enjoyed talking to you and seeing your photos!
Well done to those of you who are taking part in our tournament! I've been looking at your stats and some of you are getting incredibly quick on your times table recall, which is amazing!

Task 2: 10 minutes to complete an arithmetic page in your booklet
Task 3: MNP - Today's lesson is quite long, so I would like you to pay careful attention to your let's learn task and complete your guided practice.

Use the challenges below to improve your sentences, I expect all of you to try to use as many of these techniques as you can in your sentences.
You have spent this week exploring the image on the left. Using all of your ideas from across the week (including your improved sick sentences, your onomatopoeia, your Monday question time answers and anything you might have magpie-ed from the story opener that i shared) you are now going to write a diary entry based on the image.
You can write from the perspective of either:
Make sure you use your writing mats to show all of the things that you know I expect to see from Y6 writers.
I've started reading a book called 'Malamander' this week. I was really impressed with the first few chapters when I was reading yesterday and wanted to share them with you
Your task today is to read the extract from 'Malamander' and write a few sentences sharing your first impressions of the story. It would be fantastic if you could email me some of those impressions to share on our Book Reviews page.
Here are some questions you might want to consider as you write your impressions:

I'll also upload the document below in case that doesn't work. You can read the link on any device or print it if you are able to/prefer.
Last term, you learnt about Hinduism with Mrs Garbutt in your RE lessons. Read through the information cards below and then write a fact file about Hindu Gods. You could choose to write about all of the Gods shown below, or to choose just one or two of them and write a more detailed fact file - to do this you either need to remember what you learnt in your lessons or be able to do some extra research. I know you spent a lot of time discussing Brahma, so you should be able to write about him.
If you've done lots of writing already today and feel like you need a writing break, then you could produce your fact file in other ways:
I downloaded the fact cards from here: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-t-28543-hindu-gods-fact-cards there is a powerpoint presentation to go with them if you'd like extra help with your research https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t2-re-236-new-hindu-gods-and-goddesses-powerpoint
You can access it there if you have made an account but I will save the file at the bottom of the page if you haven't and would like to use it
