Here are year 5/6 spellings for Autumn term two. 
Please find the answers to the year 6 reasoning paper sent home this October half term. The answers are at the end of the test. 

As we end an amazing half term, our thoughts turn to a busy Autumn two term. As we run up to Christmas , Bannister class will continue to explore the topic of Chocolate. 

Literacy

In literacy we are going to launch the half term by exploring War poetry, inspired by Remembrance day. Progressing from this we will explore narrative writing through Charlie and the Chocolate factory. We are excited to embrace our new Literacy writing and Reading scheme ( Collins treasure house) which will shape the classes Reading and Writing over the coming year. 

Numeracy

In Numeracy we are embracing our new Big Math's, Math's scheme. Children are completing weekly x tables and gap challenges to help drive Numeracy forward. This term we will continue to focus on place value, x 10, 100 and the 4 operations. Year 6 children will continue to focus on Math's arithmetic and reasoning questions. 

Homework for October half term:  Y5/6 spellings, Y6 will be sent home a Maths reasoning paper and the project home is to create a piece of homework linked to the Aztecs. This could include a 3-d model of an Aztec temple, pictures of Aztec Gods, creating  a chocolate bar or artwork linked to Charlie and the chocolate factory. Let your imagination run wild!!!!!!
Harvest Festival celebrations will be on Friday 26th October 2018 at 2pm. All parents, carers and grandparents welcome. 

Bannister Class has had a marvellous day making their own chocolate bars. They have created a set of instructions : which have included the use of imperative verbs, adverbs, semi- colons and subordinate clauses. 

A big thank you to all Bannister parents, grandparents and carers !!!!

Dear Parents: on Wednesday 10th October, we will be having a chocolate bar making morning. Could children please bring in some plain chocolate and something that could be added to the melted chocolate to create a creative chocolate delight. Please could your child not bring nuts or anything with nuts in it, due to nut allergies. Thank you. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact the year 6 team. 
In Bannister class we have been developing our Math's discussion skills. Getting children to verbalize about their Math's work is an important step in developing their Math's reasoning skills.
