On Wednesday 9th October we enjoyed our ‘Stem Science’ day as a school. In Year 5 and Year 6 we carried out some investigations from ‘Stem Kitchen’- they were great fun! Our focus was ‘Materials and their Properties’.
In Aderyn Du and Barcud Coch spelling activity homework will be given out on a TUESDAY, to be returned the following TUESDAY. Minute Maths homework will be given out on a THURSDAY, to be returned the following THURSDAY. In additon to these weekly homework activities we may, on occasions, ask children to complete some problem solving activities or reading comprehension work in order to consoildate learning that has taken place in class.
READING- We require the children to read 4 times a week at home and that an adult signs their reading record each time that they have read. Although many of the children read fluently by the time that they reach Year 5 and Year 6 it is still very important that they read as often as possible, and vary the type of material that they are reading. Reading to an adult at this age is also encouraged in order that unfamiliar vocabulary is highlighted, or the content of a book or article discussed.
