This week’s homework (due Friday 20th March)

Hello everyone, I hope you are all staying well and healthy!

This week’s homework is business as usual. I am now trying your children on non-fiction books at their exact reading level, which may be more challenging than last week’s reading. I would encourage you to discuss the topic of the book with your child and quiz them on any information within the book!

This week’s spelling pattern is <ey>. The words are as follows:

  1. film
  2. kept
  3. key
  4. honey
  5. money
  6. donkey
  7. chimney
  8. journey
  9. thousand
  10. million

Finally, for maths we will be wrapping up time and starting work on ‘chance and uncertainty’. This week’s focus will be discussing the likelihood of events occurring and using the correct language. For example:

‘Rolling a number between 1 and 6 on a dice is certain.

‘Rolling a number higher than 6 is impossible.’

‘The sun coming out today is likely.’

‘A penguin appearing in the playground is very unlikely.’

As soon as your child is familiar with the language we use when discussing chance we can move onto more advanced topics.

Thanks a lot,

Mr McGaff
