Year 5 week ending 27.4.18

Year 5 week ending 27th April 2018

We have had an extremely busy week preparing for the assessments and rehearsing for the Key Stage Two assembly.  It has been lovely to see homework being brought in showing how hard the children are working at home.

How you can help at home:

We would really like the children to focus on literacy and numeracy for homework in preparation for next week. 

Numeracy – please use my maths to practice the following topics which we have been learning in class: fractions of an amount, converting units of measurement, multiplying and dividing numbers and volume.  The links are also left below for sample tests and the BBC revision games.

Literacy – the children will have been given a comprehension to complete.

Spellings – please encourage the children to practice their spellings, in particular writing them in sentences in their homework books to show their understanding of the words.

Dosbarth Mr Green Homelearning

Week beginning 25/4/18

Literacy:

Pupils will receive their spellings to learn on a Friday and will be tested on the following Friday. During that time pupils can find out the meaning of words using a dictionary to be able to include them in written sentences. I will check their sentences on that Friday. Five house Points will be awarded for correct spelling and the use of full stops and capitals.

 

 

Numeracy:

This week we have carried out revision in readiness for the National Tests next week. I have sent home copies of the types of questions that have previously been included.

Please learn tables from x2 to  x7

 

Thank you for your continued support

Mr D Green

Year Two week ending 20/4/18

What  a lovely week we have had. We have made a good start on our new topic, London, writing poems about the Tube, creating a role-play area with a ticket station and a tube train and discussing what the children would like to learn. The children also had their first yoga lesson this week with Mrs Ryder which they loved and in PE we have started athletics. We will still be running the Daily Mile as frequently as we can particularly as the ground is dry at the moment. 
We have had a look at how we are organising the spellings as we are aware that they have been coming home on different days which is confusing for all. All children should have come home with their new spellings on Thursday - we will give them a week to learn them and then start our new system of spellings a week on Tuesday. From Tuesday 1st of May, the children will be tested each Tuesday and receive new spellings straight after their test. Could you ensure that your child has their homework book in on Tuesdays so that they can stick their new, differentiated spellings in. We will no longer be doing spellings in their yellow , reading record. This will give us more time to focus on reading during Guided reading sessions and will be inline with how they organise spellings in the KS2. 
You may be aware that the children will be doing the national tests in just over a week. As it is the first time they have done them, we have done a few practice ones this week. They all seem to have coped very well with them. This week we have spent some time revising different topics and how to answer certain types of questions. 

You can help at home by:
Literacy: Continue to read your home readers and other books as often as you can, practise your spellings.
Maths: I have set two new mymaths activities 
Topic: Find out facts about the London Undergound. How old is it? How many lines are there? How many trains do they have? How far does it run? if you have time watch the London Marathon this Sunday and see if you can spot some of the famous landmarks. 

Most importantly, get outside and enjoy the sun! 
Have a lovely weekend, 
Mrs Schartz and the Year Two team

Spellings – please encourage the children to practice their spellings, in particular writing them in sentences in their homework books to show their understanding of the words.

Key Stage Two assembly – please help your child to learn their words if they do not know them already and we would appreciate having costumes in as soon as possible.  The outfits that they wore to St Fagan's before Easter will be perfect so please don't feel you have to get anything else.

Viney Hill – we are now able to confirm that we have been able to rebook Viney Hill for the dates of 8th – 10th May.
