Y2 w/e 26.10.18

We have made it! A great start to Y2- well done everyone.

This week we have been

Identifying the features of a recount- planning and writing our own recount of the Harvest Festival.

Using number lines for subtracting and reasoning activities- how many different ways we can make a number using 3 dice.

Looking at characters in our Welsh version of Cinderella

Self assessing our starting and ending positions jn pe- ready to improve for next time when developing our sequence.

You can help at home by

2/5/10 xtable in and out of order rapidly
Revise place value and understanding of each number- what they are worth and also saying it and writing the number down.
Eg. 47- 4 tens and 7 units. ( children write the numbers down for the number the adult has given them)

A letter has gone home to bring in a pebble or stone suitable for the children to complete some poppy art on for the 100th anniversary of the war.

Practice past tense of words in particular the -ed ending. A lot of children are using a 't' instead.
Eg
Walk- walked
Talk- talked

Read lots- ask your child questions about the book including strategies such as

Predicting
Summarising
Literal
Inferring ( why do you think they said that or acted in that way?)

What foods are healthy? Not healthy? Which are ok in moderation?

Have a lovely and well deserved break!

Thanks

Year 5 week ending 26th October 2018

 

This week we have been learning:

Literacy – we looked at a range of recount texts to identify features, then gathered information from police witnesses to write our own - a newspaper report about a bank robbery!

Numeracy – practising using the grid method for multiplying 3-digit numbers, using our times table knowledge to help!

                        e.g.367 x 8 = 2922

x

300

60

7

    8

2400

480

42

 

Have a go at home:

 

Literacy – we will be starting a novel study after half term, linked to our Disney topic. Lots of Disney films were based on books –

can you find out what some of these movie/ book pairings are? They might surprise you!

 

Numeracy – have a go at solving these problems in your homework book:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Spellings – remember to practice your spellings using Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check.

Find out the definition for any words you don’t know, and try putting them into a sentence.

Year one week ending 26/10/18

Year One have worked so hard this half term and we are really pleased and proud of all of them. This week we have been learning about:

 

Literacy: Writing recounts and lists. We have looked at endings for words particularly how the ‘ee’ sound is often written with a ‘y’ at the end of words.

Numeracy: naming and recognising 2D shapes, symmetry

Topic: Improving our drawing of a butterfly. After half term we will do our third draft. We have also been representing our science investigation results in a pictogram and drawing conclusions from it.

 

You can help at home by:

 

Literacy: Make a list of the things you need when you go on holiday. Add in some adjectives, think about your words endings ( y, ed, ing) and remember to use bullet points. We are sending home a letter formation sheet – please help your child to practise their letter formation.

 

Numeracy: Look around the house, what examples of 2D shape can you find? Can you find a hexagon? We are also sending home a sheet with the rhymes for number formation.

 

Topic: After half term we will start looking at healthy eating. Make a diary of all the healthy food you eat over half term.

 

Have a wonderful half term,

Year One team

Year 4 week ending 26.10.18

Year 4 week ending 26th October 2018

This week we have been learning to:

Numeracy – we have been practising our reasoning skills for problem solving.

Literacy – we have written our final recounts of our fears when we were little and have also written recounts about our Harvest Service last Friday.

Technology – we have designed our shoes for a Disney character in readiness to make them after half term.

P.E – we have now completed our Peter Pan shadow dance and are ready to perform it to each other next week.  We have also identified the difference in rules between basketball and netball.

How you can help at home:

Numeracy –  having focussed on our reasoning skills this week, we would like you to solve the following problem.  Remember to show all of your workings out and please complete them in your homework books.


Literacy – After half term we will be starting to focus on a novel.  We would like you to read a book of your choice over half term and complete a book review.  You can use the following template or design and write a book review of your own.

fhttp://www.primaryresources.co.uk/english/pdfs/DGbookreview.pdf

P.E – We will be performing our dances to each other on Tuesday after half. If the children would like to, they may bring in costumes and simple props to perform their dance.  If they bring swords, please can they be plastic or foam only. 

Technology – on the first Monday back after half term (5th November), we will be making our Disney inspired shoes.  Thank you so much for all the shoes you have provided for the children.  We will be using Modroc to make the shoes which is an extremely messy substance!  Please could you send in with you child some old clothes / long apron / large overshirt etc in a plastic bag to cover their uniform.

Science – write a quiz on everything you have learnt so far in year 4 about magnets and forces for your classmates / family to try.  Try and include a mix of questions, such as multiple choice, true or false etc. Remember, you need to know the answers yourself, keep them safe somewhere to mark their work!

Spellings – please remember to practice your spellings. Try writing them and combing them in sentences or even a story to show you understand them.

We would like to say a fond farewell and thank you to Miss Clarke for all her help this half term and look forward to welcoming back Mrs Phillips.

We hope you have a lovely half term.

Mrs Maunder and Miss Clarke.

Homework Year Three

Dosbarth Mr Green

Week Commencing 22/10/18

 

 

Literacy: Learn the spellings that will be written in Homework books by finding their meanings if necessary and writing them in a sentence.  Your child will be tested after the half term break.

 

Numeracy: We have been working on place value.

Examples - 365 = 300 + 60 + 5, 365 – 60 = 305, 365 – 5 = 360

 

£2.96 = £2.00 + 90p + 6p, £2.96 – 90p = £2.06 (This is where some pupils became a little stuck),    £2.96 – 6p = £2.90

 

We have also revised work carried out this term.

Year 4 week ending 19.10.18

Year 4 week ending 19th October 2018
This week we have been learning to:
Numeracy – we have been using our mental maths skills to add and subtract numbers, including tenths.
Literacy – we have been identifying the features of recounts and drafting and rewriting our on recounts about a time when we were afraid.  This has been based on the book "Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears" by Emily Gravett.

Theatre – we had a wonderful visit from Image theatre who performed for us.
P.E – we have now completed our Peter Pan shadow dance and are ready to perform it to each other next week.
Harvest – we had a lovely Harvest service in church today with wonderful singing. Da iawn year 4.
 How you can help at home:
Numeracy –  homework has been set using my maths.
Literacy – we will be creating a class book in the style of "Little Mouse's Big Book of Fears" by Emily Gravett.  The children will have a page each where they can add pictures of themselves when they were little, diagrams and collage about their fears when they were little. Also, any bits and pieces of interesting fabric, paper, buttons, labels, stickers, etc. that you can spare to share and decorate their pages would be much appreciated.
Big Write – during next week, leading up to Friday, the children will be writing a fictional recount about and animal that has a narrow escape from something else trying to catch them,  fox/rabbit, cat/rat, robin/sparrow hawk, etc. Decide on the animal you are going to write about and what it is escaping from.  You can start planning key words and phrases you are going to use, features of the animal that might help it to escape etc.
P.E – We will be performing our dances to each other next week. If the children would like to, they may bring in costumes and simple props to perform their dance.  If they bring swords, please can they be plastic or foam only. 
Science – What interesting facts can you find about magnets? For example: how might they be used in a scrap yard? What's the strongest magnet in the world? Try creating a fact file on magnets that you can share next week in class.
Spellings – please remember to practice your spellings. Try writing them and combing them in sentences or even a story to show you understand them.
Have a lovely weekend.

Y2 w/e 19.10.18

This week have been

Estimating and measuring different objects and doubling and halving numbers

Identifying the features of a recount and sequencing Jack and the Beanstalk story then writing a recount as if we were Jack

Looking at internet safety and creating a poster sharing e-safety rules

Harvest service and image theatre

Developing accuracy with catching and throwing

Your child has brought home a sheet of the rhymes for letter formation. Please use this as much as possible with your child to practise accurate formation which will help with their work in school. You can use the homework books to record if you wish.

Spelling test and new words will be on Monday so please make sure homework books are in for then.

Practice doubling and halving even numbers of any size depending on child's confidence. Use objects around the house to help if need be. 2/5/10 x table is also to be practiced to develop rapid recall in and out of order.

We are going to be looking at accurate use of full stops and connectives next week to develop accuracy and confidence when using them jn our writing.

Are there any other important rules you can think of to keep safe online?

Have a lovely weekend
