At the end of another week, the temperature is dropping again but at least it has stayed dry!
Next week, the children will be sitting their Autumn term assessments. We will be doing a reading test and some Maths tests, balanced out with plenty of fun activities in the afternoons.
As such, I am only setting spellings this week (no homework).
These are: earth, centre, heart, pressure, strength, natural, building, dangerous, enormous, notorious
Alternative spellings: came, children, help, time, will
Have a lovely weekend.
It's been a busy week again this week. In Maths, we have finished our unit on Length and Perimeter and next week we will start our unit on Multiplication and Division. We have also finished our writing in English and created our own versions of Leon and the Place Between. The children's stories are fantastic and I'm really impressed with their hard work! Have a look at some of the examples in the photos. In Science, we have continued with our topic of Sound, investigating how to make sounds louder or quieter.
This week's spellings: actual, actually, breath, breathe, certain, February, heard, imagine, increase, knowledge
Alternative spellings: most, both, looked, off, again
Homework: Reading comprehension about Anti-bullying week. Please read with your child if you feel it is above their current reading level.
This week, I have been incredibly impressed with the efforts of all of the children who made remembrance wreaths for their homework. Have a look at the photo to see the variety and creativity that is displayed. In Maths, we have learnt how to convert between lengths of measurement (mm, cm, m and km). We have written a class version of the story Leon and the Place Between in English. In Science, we've learnt all about how we hear sounds.
This week's spellings:
forgetting, forgotten, beginning, preferring, preferred, cornered, cornering, limited, limiting, appear, disappear
them, saw, make, me, there
Homework: Sound hunt.
Have a great weekend.
The weather has turned colder this week so please remember that children can wear warmer clothes in addition to their school uniform. This could be a long sleeved top under their T-shirt or a warm jumper / hoody to wear on top of their school jumper. We are keeping all windows open for ventilation.
In English this week, we have started our new unit based on the book 'Leon and the Place Between'. The children drew some brilliant story maps to learn part of the text. We have now finished our Addition and Subtraction unit in Maths and move onto Length and Perimeter next week. We have learn about the internet in Computing this week, including how search engines work and how to stay safe online. Next week, our wider curriculum subject will be Science, with the topic Sound.
This week's spellings:
eight, eighth, fruit, learn, length, occasionally, often, perhaps, recent
any, many, come, some, see
Design and create your own poppy wreath for Remembrance Day on Wednesday 11th November. You can use whatever materials / resourcs you like. Be creative!
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
