Homework 

We have learnt some first-aid techniques in school this week. This term we will be thinking about all the ways we keep ourselves safe including:

  • safety on the road.
  • safety when swimming.
  • e-safety.
  • safety in the home.
  • safety in school.

 

 This week I'd like you to create something about Kid’s Safety Education.

You could:

  • Create a poster to teach safety advice.
  • Write a discussion text on ‘Should children be taught first-aid in school?’
  • Explain all the different types of safety that children learn about.
  • Show how you keep yourself safe.
  • Create a cartoon/story/video etc. to teach children to be safe . . . 

 

Spellings

We are going to try something new with our spellings. We will be looking through our books and finding words that we have mis-spelled to create our own individualised spelling list. These will then be focus words to spell correctly in our writing.

Grammar prompt sheets

Below you will find explanations for some of the grammatical terms that the children are expected to know and use. Most of these terms will be used alongside their writing to develop their understanding of language and how authors create effects. The children will also encounter these words as part of the grammar test in their SATs.

Maths prompt sheets

Multiplication strategies:
Co-ordinates, area, perimeter, converting measures, fractions:

Key Stage 2 Teacher Assessment Framework

When the new National Curriculum was introduced, the expected standards for each year group was raised. This means that each year the expectations for the children reaching the end of a key stage will rise year on year. At the end of each key stage your child's class teacher will use the Teacher Assessment Framework (TAFs) to assess each child. Whereas in the past your child would need to have met most of the criteria, your child will now have to have meet each of the statements to be assessed as having met the expected standard.

In Year 6, the children will also sit their SATs, in Reading; Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar; and Maths with their writing being assessed over the year.

Please follow the link below to view the TAFs for KS2.
