Reading Records

We expect all of you to be updating your reading records with at least 3 entries every week. This should include:

-Date

-Title of book

-Page numbers read

-A detailed comment about what you have read eg What did you enjoy most? What type of story was it? Which character was your favorite and why? Is it similar to any other stories you've read? 

Please make sure you bring your reading book and reading record to school every day and an adult signs it after each entry.

As part of our English lessons, we are continuing to practise strategies that aid us when spelling unfamiliar words. This week we have been exploring and homophones and near homophones. 

 

For your homework please complete the word search provided and for an additional challenge, write a sentence or two using the homophones we have been looking at. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reminders:

Please try to provide your child with a healthy snack for break time and a pencil case with the required equipment.

Please ensure children always have a water-proof jacket in school as the weather can be very unpredictable.

 

PE Kits:

Please remind your children that if they go to an after-school club that requires them to wear their P.E kit, that it is returned to school the following day.

 If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E, please inform the class teacher directly, send an email or write a note. Otherwise, they will be expected to take part.

 PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure you bring in your PE kits.

 

HOMEWORK

MATHS

This week in Maths we have been  learning about different strategies to help us with dividing 3 (and 4!) digit numbers by a ones digit. 

Please complete the Mathletics tasks set for you. 

 ENGLISH

 This week, we have finished reading the book, 'Clockwork' by Philip Pullman within our English lessons. We thoroughly enjoyed our novel and our writing surrounding it has been superb!

This week in school has been Anti-Bullying week and we have been thinking about ways to show kindness. As such, we would like you to create five of your own 'random acts of kindness' cards similar to below.
