WE ALL NEED TO WORK ON OUR TIMES TABLES 

Please practise your times tables as the better you get the easier maths will become. We have added some fun websites to help you achieve this goal. Please use them. I like the slingshot game personally! (Multiplication.com)

Can you beat the speed test?

 

If you know of any other fun websites please let us know so we can share them with the other children.

 

Year 6 Reading List

The following list of books have been suggested by Year 6 children. We hope that this will help you find some really interesting books to read in future. The list will be added to on a regular basis so keep a look out. Available at all good local libraries smiley

 

The Famous Five series - Enid Blyton (Zara Islam - I like this series because it is full of adventure and surprises).

 

The Parent Agency - David Baddiel (Manon Harcombe - (This is my favourite book because the whole book is based around a dream. It's really funny). 

 

Roof Toppers - Katherine Rundell (Amelie Wallace - I enjoyed this book because it is an adventure and you don't know what is going to happen next). 

 

Some of Miss Owen's favourites

Carrie's War - Nina Bawden

The Demon Headmaster - Gillian Cross

Warhorse - Michael Morpurgo

The 'Series of Unfortunate Events' series - Daniel Handler

Holes - Louis Sachar

Skellig - David Almond

A Monster Calls - Patrick Ness

Charlotte's Web - E.B. White

 

Some of Mr Edwards' favourites

The 'Red Wall' series - Brian Jacques

Watership Down - Richard Adams

Clockwork - Philip Pullman

Kensuke's Kingdom - Michael Morpurgo

The Girl of Ink and Stars - Kiran Millwood Hargrave

Our favourite authors: Jacqueline Wilson, J.K Rowling, Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl, Michael Morpurgo, Elizabeth Laird, Morris Gleitzman, Meg Cabot and Lewis Carroll. 

 

*TOP TIP - Even if you have seen the films/television programmes based on some of these books, read the books anyway! They often miss out details such as characters or events. The books are SO much better! 

 

Test Preparation

 

With the National Tests fast approaching we will continue to add helpful resources for all of the children to use.

 

Corbett Maths

 

Corbett Maths is a great way for children to practise at home. With the '5 a day Challenge,' children can work at bronze, silver, gold or platinum.

Homework - February Half Term

Eisteddfod

 

Recitation

Mae gen I gariad,

O ! mae hi’n ddel,

Mae hi’n byw yn drws ‘nesa

A’I henw yw Nel.

 

Mae gen I un arall

A aeth a’m bryd,

Sef Gwen sydd yn byw

Ym mhen ucha’r stryd.

 

Mae gen I broblem,

‘Rwy’n crafu ‘mhen,

Pa un i’w dewis

Nel, ynteu Gwen ?

 

Song - Calon Lan

Nid wy'n gofyn bywyd moethus,
Aur y byd na'i berlau mân:
Gofyn wyf am galon hapus,
Calon onest, calon lân.

Cytgan:
Calon lân yn llawn daioni,
Tecach yw na'r lili dlos:
Dim ond calon lân all ganu- 
Canu'r dydd a chanu'r nos.
