In Design and Technology this half term, the children will be making a phone/ ipod case out of felt using different sewing techniques. To further our work in class yesterday, please complete the market research survey and take measurements of the appliance you will make a case for.
Learn your spellings and continue to practise your times tables.
Over half term, we would like the children to start their Readathon challenge. Your child will have brought home a pack to get started and will be able to tell you all about it.
Please continue to practise times tables daily using any of the resources we have provided previously e.g. games below, speed tests, oral rehearsal. The children are getting so much quicker and we'd like this to continue.
Practise your spellings.
This week the children have a reading comprehension to complete in their homework books. We have been working on these in class for the past 4 weeks - specifically focusing on how to retrieve the answers from the text in a very precise manner. The children need to use evidence from the text to support their answers and are beginning to understand that a 2 mark question needs at least 2 reasons or their answer needs to be well reasoned and supported by evidence from the text.
Please continue to practice times tables daily too. You could print off the sheet from last week to see if you can complete it quicker.
Please learn your spellings and keep practising your times tables.
Complete the sheet in your homework book. A copy is here too if you want to repeat it to see if you can beat your time.
This week the children have a piece of Literacy stuck into their homework books. It follows on from sentence work we have been focusing on in class to do with linking ideas within paragraphs using adverbial phrases. This will help improve their story writing next week.
Adverbial phrases tell you when, how, where or how often something happens. They help your writing flow smoothly. They can come at the start of a sentence - this is called a fronted adverbial and they need to be followed by a comma. E.g. Without warning, the boy sprinted off.
You can also have adverbial phrases at the end of a sentence e.g.
Without warning, the boy sprinted off into the depths of the rainforest.
Please complete the sheets in your homework book. Also practise your spellings which are a recap on words we learnt last term. Finally continue to practise your times tables daily.
Please learn your topic based Spelling words for a spelling test on Monday. They are saved in the Spelling section of our website if you need a copy.
Please organise your costume and learn the song words for the Christmas Play.
Costumes must be in on Monday 11th December in a named bag please.
Open the week 11 document for details of your costume!
Don't forget to practise your times tables and spellings every day too!
