Week 3

This week we’ve been busy making our junk model inventions and what a range of inventions we have had, from a litter picking kite to a milk bottle floatation device to a hair bobble dispenser!

In english we have learnt about expanded nouns, prepositions and fronted adverbials and have started to apply these in our independent writing.

In maths we have continued our work on place value and have been concentrating on rounding this week.

In other news we have started our Skip2bfit personal challenge and our swimming lessons!

Homework Week 2

This week’s maths homework supports what we have been learning in class this week.

All children are invited to write a letter to apply for school council – details for what you can include in your letter will be found in your homework book.

Our project for the half term has also been sent home in homework books. I look forward to seeing your inventions!

Week 2

This week we have continued our inventors topic by mind mapping the qualities of an inventor. From this we created a job advert and then all wrote a letter applying for the job. All candidates have successfully made it to the interview stage!

In maths we have continued our place value unit and have been learning about: comparing and ordering numbers, place value up to a million, counting in 10s, 100s, 1000s, 10,000s and 100,000s.

In English we have been learning about pronouns and expanded noun phrases. We have been identifying these features and then using them in our own writing.

Homework week 1

This week I have set a maths homework to consolidate the 3 small steps we’ve covered in class. The children were very eager for extra homework today(!!!). If they would like to make a poster about a famous inventor or invention, that would be fantastic!

Week 1

End of week 1!

What a busy week we have had and thank you all for connecting to dojos! I have been so impressed with some of the effort that has gone into the children’s work already.

In school bags today should be:
> reading book and record (many of you have been reading regularly at home this week and recording it on your reading records – keep it up!) I’ll also be sending home some question starters similar to what we will be using in guided reading to improve comprehension skills.
These should come to school EVERY DAY.
