After half term, we will be continuing to look division in maths. We are teaching the children an approach that will allow them to solve all division calculations, including long division. This approach is slightly different to some other approaches that some of us,as parents, would have learned at school but we have found this to be the most successful method that the children have learned. The children will be bringing home a how-to sheet to help them practise and learn the method as well as a sheet of challenge problems. Check out the video below as well!
Long division-the Ecton Brook way
when we return from half term, we will be looking at a group of words known as prepositions. There are several times of prepositions and we would like the children to do the following:
1. Write a definition for time prepositions. Give examples and create a word bank.
2. Write a definition for place prepositions. Give examples and create a word bank.
3.Write a definition for directional prepositions. Give examples and create a word bank.
4,Write a definition for agent prepositions. Give 3 examples.
5. Write a definition for place prepositions. Give 3 examples.
6. Write a definition for place prepositions. Give 3 examples.

Take a look at the link above before our science lessons this week.
Below are a couple of links to websites that may help with your homework this week.
We have recently been studying parenthesis in class. The children have been learning about three ways of showing parenthesis. we would like the children to complete the following:
Write a definition of what parenthesis is and show the three ways of punctuating it. The children will need to then apply their understanding and add parenthesis to these examples:
- The football match went into extra time.
- The boy had forgotten his PE kit.
- She combed her hair as she gazed into the mirror.
- James is an outstanding footballer.
- Did you leave your bag in the classroom?
- My family are buying a new pet from the pet shop today.
- Mathletics is how we do our maths homework.
- He grew up in a street in Northampton.
- The train pulled away from the station.
- Year 6 is when we get to go to a theme park.
We would like the children to find a poem that they would like to perform next week. This can be any kind of poem, from humorous to narrative and it doesn’t have to be long. Some poets that the children might be interested in are:
Science Lesson for the week beginning 9th October 2017
This week, to begin rounding up our unit on the Circulatory System, you will be writing a report. To give you more information and revision on report writing take a look at the links below before your science lesson this week.
