Homework for the October half term:
Please have a great week but here are some ideas of things your children can be doing to keep up the learning practise...
Charge of the Light Brigade
Evacuee - Edith Pickthall
An Irishman Foresees his Death
I saw an Old General at Bay
War rhymes -
Dulce et Decorum Est
(Children's war rhyme) Underneath the churchyard, six feet deep, There lies Hitler fast asleep, All the mice come and tickle his feet, 'Neath the churchyard, six feet deep.
Who's that knocking at the window? Who's that knocking at the door? If it's Hitler, let him in And we'll sit him on a pin, And we won't see old Hitler anymore.
This week your child will bring home their first Y6 Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation paper and Maths arithmetic paper. Please help them to work through any questions they answered incorrectly - there is no set limit on how many as some questions may require research time, while others will be easily fixed mistakes due to children seeing the question style for the first time. I have attached the mark scheme so that adults helping the children know the answers! As the children correct, please encourage them to explain why their answer was not the correct one as this is the way they will learn best.

This week, your child will be practising and performing a WW1 or WW2 poetry composition by heart. The poem can be one they have practised for homework, in school or something they write themselves.
