Bug Club is a way for children to read books and complete activities which focus on spelling, grammar and phonics.
Children also get the opportunity to complete activities and play educational games as a reward for completing tasks set by their class teacher.
The video below explains how to use Bug Club.
In science, we have been learning all about sound! Over the half term, think about everything you have learnt about volume, pitch and how sound travels and design your own pair of super protective (and of course stylish) ear defenders. You will need to do some research on which materials work best for muffling sound. When you return from half term, we will continue our research and be making prototypes of your designs.

Your challenge for half term is to investigate how much water is being used in your house. Look at the table we have given you and fill it the boxes. You will need to put your maths hats on and ask your families to join in so that you don’t miss anything.
We would also like you to continue practising your times and divisions tables and spend at least half an hour reading every day.
Hello Year 6,
Really looking forward to seeing what you decide to do.
Hope you all enjoy the half term holiday!
You could use the blog to tell us what you are up to.

On Wednesday 17th October 2018, the new Holbeach School Council went to the Houses of Parliament for a tour of the building and to see how democracy works.
First, we got on the train at Catford Bridge stations and got off at Waterloo East. Then we walked all the way to the Houses of Parliament, via St Thomas’s hospital and past the London Eye.
We met our tour guide and went though the security; it was really cool. In the security check, we had to walk through a special door way that beeped and booped as you went through.
Once we were inside, we watched a film about the history of the Houses of Parliament which was very interesting. Then we went to the ‘Robing Room’ which is where the Queen gets into their robes when there is a special ceremony like the opening of parliament. We walked through to the ‘Monarch Gallery’ which is where portraits of all the Kings and Queens of England (and their husbands and wives) are displayed.
Next, we went into the House of Lords. There were lots of red seats everywhere. The seats were covered in velvety leather. We walked to the ‘Central Lobby’ and watched a parade of people that work in the House of Commons, which included the speaker, the person in charge of security and the representatives of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Then we went to the ‘Chapel’ and looked around.
After all that, we went to the Westminster Hall and our tour guide left us and we met with our local Member of Parliament (MP) which is Janet Daby. We discussed what we wanted to change for Lewisham and told her that we wanted big speed signs around the school to tray and limit the traffic to 20 miles per hour.
Finally, we caught the train back to school. Phew! What a great day.
