Spelling – Thanks so much to everyone who completed their spelling homework on time and took care over neatness and presentation. Children will copy down their new list on Monday.
Maths/Numeracy – I gave out a worksheet revising addition with regrouping last Thursday and this is due in on Wednesday. This week we’ll revise subtraction with borrowing and exchange. A new homework sheet will be sent home on Wednesday.
Every Friday we look at a separate maths topic and recently we have looked at 2d shape in more depth. Thursdays are our problem solving days where we discuss and try out strategies we can use to solve problems. So far, these strategies include:
- Guess, check and improve ( trial and error)
- Draw it out ( picture, diagram, concept map)
- Make an organised list, grid or table
- Act it out
- Use a simpler case
Reading – We have read up to the end of Chapter 6 in Kensuke’s Kingdom, where the main character Michael is now trying to plan his escape from the island. Kensuke is still hostile yet protective, ensuring that Michael stays safe and healthy but offering no solace or friendship up to this point.
Children will also be given reading tasks in class, separate to this current class novel, so reading homework will not be set at present.
PE – Tuesday
GLOW – I tried out pupils’ log-in details (of those who said they could not access Glow after the password change). There were only two log-ins that didn’t work and two pupils still to receive their new details so hopefully this will be sorted next week Everyone else should be able to access Glow through Google Chrome. There is no homework on Glow this week anyway but I’d like to take photos of some work to put into a Slides file so that parents can see lots of our fabulous creations!
Finally, a reminder that the ‘September Weekend ‘ is only a couple of weeks away so no school on Friday 18th or Monday 21st September.
That is all for now,
Have a lovely weekend,
