UPDATE: Home Learning during 2 week self-isolation.

For the following 2 weeks (w/c 12th October) 6A will have work set for them using Google Classroom. Children have all been given usernasmes and passwords for this website and have practised completing and returning work during lesson time in school. 

During this time, updates on any work set will also be posted on twitter @mr_mcgorian - for those not signed up to twitter, this can still be viewed publicly at the following link http://twitter.com/Mr_McGorian

Any queries during this time can be sent directly through Google Classroom or on twitter.

If your child cannot access remote learning in this way, paper copies of work can be sent home if requested by contacting the school office.

Thank you for your co-operation during this challenging time and I look forward to seeing you all again soon. 

Mr. McGorian

 

Hello and welcome to 6A's class page.

Important information for this school year:

Please ensure your child brings their planner to and from school every day. They will need it to record reading, to write down spelling and accelerated reader quiz scores and to access usernames and passwords for educational websites.

 

Tuesday -  Outdoor PE 

Wednesday -  Indoor PE 

On the days that your child has a PE lesson, we ask that they come to school in their PE kit. They will wear this kit for the whole day instead of their uniform.

Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct PE kit with a plain tracksuit and trainers to wear for the whole day. Children should not be attending school in replica sports kits, such as football kits.

 

Homework:

Reading- All of the children have completed the Accelerated Reader, Star Reader quiz which has given them a book level. Children choose their own books from our class library and they can change their book as frequently as needed. Once they have finished reading their book, they will complete an Accelerated Reader quiz to check their understanding. We ask that all children read and record their reading in their planner at least 4 times each week. If you want to check on your child’s reading progress, the children record the scores from their Accelerated Reader quizzes in the back of their planners.

We use a fantastic resource called Reading Eggs in Year 6. All children have a username and password for this resource in their planners. We will set reading comprehension tasks on this website for the children to complete at home.

Reading Eggs- Click here to log in.

Children can also access our class Epic! account using our class code: vac4117

Epic!- Click here to log in.

 

Times Tables - Every child has been given a username and password to access Times Tables Rock Stars. This is a brilliant resource to help practise times tables facts. We will set TTRS battles for the children to take part in. The login details can be found in your child's planner.

TTRS - Click here to log in and play. 

 

Spellings - New spellings will be given out every Monday and the children will be tested on those spellings every Friday. Children will glue their spelling list in to their planner each week. Each child has been given a username and password to access Spelling Shed. This is a great resource to help practise spelling rulesThe login details can be found in your child's planner.

I will also use my school Twitter account @Mr_McGorian to share general information, homework reminders and important news and updates.
