Week Beginning 4 January 2016

ECA/BISCAP/BISSLIONS Swimming Term 2: will start the week commencing 11 January.


  • As many of you may be returning home for the Chirstmas vacation we would like to inform you about future dressing up days. This may give you an opportunity to purchase any clothes for these special events. On Friday 25 March we will have the International Day parade. Children will have the opportunity to dress in their national costumes or in the colours of their home country.
  • Uniform: Now that it is colder in the mornings please remember that children should not be wearing leggings, boots or hoodies.  They should be wearing school jumpers/cardigans/fleeces and NOT non-uniform versions.  Information is available on the Primary Parent Handbook on the website.


Due to the holiday we will not be issuing homework this week. However, here are some recommended websites that you may wish to browse. - The Year 6 Team





In our first week of Literacy we will be beginning a series of lessons investigating information texts and how opinions differ from facts. We will be interrogating some high quality non-fiction books to discover how important our oceans are for life on Earth. We  will then be looking at how these are formatted and arranged on the page with headings, sub-headings, quotes and captions.


In our first week of Maths we will be reviewing and revising our operations of addition and subtraction.  We will revisit the methods used for numbers up to 5 digits, discussing our approaches and feedback on the precisionof outcomes.  We will also review our times-table skills.


This term our new Themed Learning topic is water. This will be a unit that will involve a great deal of practical scientific investigation and the study of some challenging geographical case studies. In the first week we will introduce the topic and then have a dramatic, exciting experience for the children where we re-create the politics of water distribution and scarcity.


In PSHCE this week we will focus further on fostering new relationships, creating rules and expectations for the group and how to work together successfully.  We will reflect on what we achieved last term and discuss new personal targtes for the term ahead. We will also welcome some new children to Year 6 and will discuss how we can be helpful in settling them into their new school.


Literacy – heading, sub heading, caption, quote, diagram, illustration

Maths– addition, subtraction, multiplication, division

Themed Learning- water, scarcity, global warming, carbon cycle, Gulf Stream


Koken, bakken, braden... Kun jij het spreekwoord raden?

Ons volgende thema staat in het teken van koken en alles wat daarmee te maken heeft (recepten, spijsvertering, het restaurant, ingrediënten, etc.) en de daaraan gekoppelde beeldspraak. Veel spreekwoorden, uitdrukkingen en gezegden draaien immers om een voedingselement.


Staal heeft een oefenapp ontwikkeld die je op je iPad kunt downloaden. De school ID van SDS is 8950. Elke leerling heeft een eigen inlogcode. Die wordt per groep naar u gemaild. De Staalapp wordt vanaf nu deel van het huiswerk en zal zeer regelmatig BLOON vervangen.

In de vakantie kan er vast volop geoefend worden met de Staalapp. Alle opdrachten van de blokken 1 en 2 mogen geoefend worden (herhaling) en van blok 3 mogen de opdrachten van week 1 en 2 gemaakt worden. Zowel de opdrachten van spelling als van grammatica. Let op: de app houdt de score bij! Raffel het dus niet af!

De leerlingen van Y5 en Y6 hebben op school geoefend en zijn zeer enthousiast!

Estafette en bieb

Denkt u op maandag (Y3 , Y5, Y6) of donderdag (Y4)  aan het biebboek en de Estafettemap? Estafette levert alleen het gewenste resultaat op als u uw zoon/dochter controleert tijdens het lezen van Vloeiend&Vlot en als maatje tijdens het maken van het werkboek.

Extra oefenen in de vakantie:

  • Staalapp spelling en grammatica: blok 1 en 2 helemaal en blok 3 t/m week 2
  • Estafette: vloeiend en vlot, elke dag 2 pagina’s tempolezen
  • Vrij lezen: laat uw kind veel Nederlandse boeken lezen in de vakantie; dit is goed voor de woordenschat, het technisch lezen en taalontwikkeling in het algemeen. 

Iedereen een fantastische vakantie gewenst!
