Welcome back..I hope you all had an amazing break, but now we need to knuckle down to face an extremely short but busy second half of the term!
Mr B :)
This term our value is 'Justice'
We will be discussing what justice is, different ways we can show justice and sharing our stories of justice.
28.02.18 - Eisteddfod final at Cox Green School
English - We will continue our unit on writing a mystery story. We will be looking at openings, adding a problem to our story, solving the problem, a climax and lastly the ending. The end of this fortnight will see us writing up our stories and sharing them with the class.
Maths - We will continue with our Fractions section this week. Our focus will be on multiplying whole numbers and mixed fractions. We will be looking at different methods to work out the answers.
Please ensure that your child is revising the tables at home. Doodle Maths has an app called Doodle Times Tables and they use the same log in details as Doodle Maths to sign in. This will assist them in learning the tables and they are able to earn stars at the same time.
Reading - Together we will be reading The Huddle and discussing the questions. The questions are mainly inference based. I will model reading the text and then I will listen to each child read too.
Computing - We will be using Stop Motion Studio to bring our mystery stories to life. Children will be put into groups and together they will come up with a story, this can be an entirely new one or they can combine elements of their own stories together to make a group effort. They will then need to decide what they would like to use to act out their stories.
Maths homework: Doodle Maths - I will set homework based on Multiplication, Division and Fractions that we cover throughout this week. I would like to see each child earn at least 50 stars this week. Should your child have any difficulty with the homework tasks I set, please could you send me a message in the Partnership book.
Spellings homework: Week 10
Spelling Test: Monday 26th February
Reading for Pleasure:
Please ensure that reading is taking place daily. It is vitally important for your children to read.
If they would like to qualify for a reading badge, they will need to read four times a week for the entire term. I will only know if they have completed this task if you sign their partnership books.
Please may the partnership books be at school everyday.
Henry- For doing so well in maths this week
Chloe- For such an amazing effort in her setting description
Well done to Molly and Ione
