year 1

Hi all, after half term we will begin to think about Easter in a creative way.

In order to  help with our preparations, please could you send a washed tin in with your child.

This week has been a busy one with all things Eisteddfod!

Poetry, story recounts,  handwriting,  art and dance, all of which the children have embraced and enjoyed.

Thank you for all your support with the wonderful welsh costumes which looked amazing during our Eisteddfod assembly.

Wishing you all a happy and safe half term

Diolch

Eisteddfod work based on the myth of St Dynwen. Story mapped and then completed a re telling of the myth. Art work based on the myth.

The homework entry is to be in Thursday latest please with name/ house/ year group clearly labelled somewhere ( can be on a sheet along with peg)

We will be carrying on with eisteddfod work next week including handwriting/ learning a song and writing our myths in best.

We will also be writing our own short myths using the features we have identified in St Dynwen.

Year 4 Home Learning- Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips W/E 15.2.19


Maths-

Equivalent fractions

Finding fractions of an amount

Literacy-

Myths and Legends- in particular, planning our own Welsh Legend story

At home-

Keep practising the recall of timetables when possible, in particular  x3 and x4. Have a look at https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/times-tables

Have a look at https://www.bbc.com/bitesize/articles/zwjwgdm

Or https://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/fractions-equality/latest/fractions-equality_en.html

For some ideas on equivalent fractions.

We looked at finding a fraction of something e.g 1/5 of 20, and then finding 3/5 of 20, so we multiplied the answer to 1/5 of 20=4 by 3 to get 12 etc. It helped some children to draw out images to help group them if they couldn't divide mentally. E.g 1/3 of 18- draw 18 spots, group them into 3 groups so that each group had 6 spots in.

Don't forget to choose something from the WW2 list to carry on with.

Many thanks for your support, have a great weekend.

Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips

Homework Year 3

Dosbarth Mr Green

Week Commencing 11/2/19

 

 

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 a week  Friday.

 

 

Numeracy: This week we have been solving word problems (not world!!) based on rationing. We have been learning how to read questions carefully to understand what to do exactly. If you can find any word problems that would be great. We have also been measuring using cm and M and converting between them.  I have set homework on MyMaths to reinforce this. Continue with the times tables practise: x2, x3, x4, x5, x10. After half term we will be looking at x6.

 

 

Thank you so much for all the wonderful WW2 shelters that you have been making with your children. I’m running out of room J

 

 

Eisteddfod: Could your child design and create a new school logo for the competition on Friday  22nd Feb.

 

 

 

Thank you once again for your continued support,

Mr D Green

                                                                                      12 ÷ 3 =  4

                                                                                      12 ÷ 4 =  3

 

You can also research some of the codes used during WWII.
