6MH

Hello and welcome to Year 6! I am looking forward to meeting you all and welcoming you to life at the TOP of Chesswood – it’s going to be a great adventure!

Firstly, I would love to find out more about you, so I have some super home learning tasks for you to do. Have a look at the Year 6 introduction to find out more...

Once you have completed your postcard task, please email it to me!

My email address is: mhills@chesswood.w-sussex.sch.uk 

You can also send any other work or information you would like me to know, including any other questions you have.

 

In Year 6, we are all keen readers and we love to share our book recommendations with each other. Check out our reading challenge to discover loads of brilliant books for you to lose yourself in.

That’s all for now – I can’t wait to see you in September. Until then, have a great transition day, stay safe, have an incredible summer, and I'll see you soon!

Update: I have already started receiving some really excellent work and I am so impressed by what I am seeing! Please check out our 'Celebrating 6MH's Work!' page to see everyone's Postcards and any other work I receive today. You are doing a great job, I look forward to receiving more fantastic work and answering any questions you may have.

I would love a photo of you reading in a peculiar place - e.g. the garden on a swing, in a washing basket, at the beach etc. I will display this in our classroom for September so send them my way if you can! - The weirder, the more wonderful! House points to be earned! - see Reading section below.

riddle answers!

1) What can be as big as you, but does not weigh anything? - Your shadow. 

2) What can you hold but never throw? - Your breath! (Or, a grudge).

What am I?

1) If you drop me, I'm sure to crack, but give me a smile, I'll always smile back. - A mirror. 

2) The more you take from me, the greater I become. - A hole!

 

Maths trick

Think of a number...

Double it...

Add ten... 

Half it... 

Take away the number you started with.

YOUR NUMBER IS 5.

 

How does it work? Does it work with any starting number... even zero?  Try it out!
