Purple

Welcome to Year 6! We are PURPLE class.

 

Star of the Week - Alfie

 

Important Information

Our PE days will be on  Wednesday and Thursday, so please have your kit in for then. 

 

Spellings will be given out weekly, with the test the following week.

 

We will be doing weekly times tables tests on a Friday. These will start with revision of all the tables, and then progress into questions such as 0.4 x 80 which combine knowledge of both times tables and place value. This regular practise will help children keep these skills sharp, and also link in with the grid method of multiplication we do in class.

 

Important Dates

Rochdale AFC - coaching Purple Class Monday 16th September, sponsored penalties Friday 20th September.
