Spelling – Thanks so much to everyone who completed their spelling homework on time and took care over neatness and presentation. New spelling list on Monday.
Maths – Children were set a maths task on Glow last week but I hear that some pupils had difficulties logging in with their new (or old) passwords. With this in mind, please don’t worry if the maths task was not started. I’ll send home a new maths task in the form of a worksheet this Wednesday instead. Hope fully, we’ll resolve the Glow log-in issues in due course.
In maths, we have been looking at times tables patterns, numbers up to one billion, place value, squared numbers and every Friday, revising the properties of 2d shape.
Top Marks website has a fun mental maths game called Hit the Button – children could be playing this at home to revise tables, division, doubles and halves.
Reading – We have read up to the end of Chapter 4 in Kensuke’s Kingdom, where the main character Michael is washed up on a deserted island ( or so he thinks). We have had lots of discussion around basic survival skills. Children produced wonderful pieces of descriptive writing which focused on using senses to convey the struggle Michael had when he fell into the ocean. We also looked at how to paint ocean waves in art and have created some super work using pencil, chalk and paint.
PE – Please remember to come dressed for outdoor PE on Tuesdays.
Outdoor play – Can children please come to school with a waterproof jacket as autumn is now upon us and the weather is very changeable.
That’s all for now,
