Big Maths Methods for Key Stage 2
I have created some 'Show Me' tutorials to help the children develop their understanding of the Big Maths methods. Each video goes through the steps needed from Clic test level 2 to 5.
Please click on the links to see the tutorials.
Here are some 'Show Me' tutorials to help with work we have covered in class.
Long Multiplication (2 methods)
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)
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
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).

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

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