WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK:
We read lots of stories from other cultures and watched a short film (The Mermaid Story) based on a traditional aborigine tale. We developed sentences based on this story focussing on fronted adverbials, conjunctions and adverbs. We will be holding a parent grammar workshop next term to discuss grammar concepts in greater detail. We continued looking at fractions, in particular, fractions greater than one.
WHAT WE'LL BE DOING NEXT:
We will continue to develop sentences based on ‘The Mermaid Story’ focussing on speech rules, varying sentence structure and prepositions.
Please ensure homework is returned on a Wednesday. Homework planners will be used by the children to record their weekly spellings. Your child should also use this planner to record their daily reading, spelling and times table practise.
- Spellings: In homework planners.
- English: Reading
- Mental Maths: TT rock stars
Goodbye Good Times Challenge: TT Rockstars has now replaced the Good Times Challenge. The children will complete a quiz in class, similar to the format of TT Rockstars, in order to help develop speed and accuracy of times tables. We found this aids the children’s recall facts in a far superior way to that of Good Times Challenge. All practise for these quizzes can be done by playing TT Rockstars at home
