This week, children have been actively using ‘Star Counting’ to learn the 4 times table. Over the weekend, they are to create a new ‘Star Counting’ sequence, to share with the class, to help learn the 6 times table.
All the children have received their Guided Reading texts this week. To help introduce their texts, we want to gather pictures of the children reading this text in strange, unusual or interesting locations.
To help build our passion for reading, everyone is to write a review about their favourite book to display in class or on the class blog. This review should include a summary of the book, the reasoning why it is their favourite book and the types of readers who would also enjoy this book.
Please remember to support your children with their home reading by both listening to them read and discussing their books with them. Please share your comments with the class teachers by recording them in their Reading Records so we can work together to help your child make the best possible progress.
Also, Mathletics has been updated to include a range of addition activities which will help your child to consolidate their learning from the unit we have just been learning about.
In English, we have been creating character descriptions, using expanded noun phrases, of the characters in Hansel & Gretel.
For homework this week, we are going to create a Wanted poster for a Fairy Tale character of our choice. We will need to use expanded noun phrases to describe precisely who the character is and summarise the crime that this character is guilty of.
Homework is due in on Tuesday, 19th September.
Claudius has begun his invasion of Britannia. One of the things that surprised the Celts the most was the fact that he even brought elephants, in order to succeed where Julius Caesar failed.
Post your 100 words about the invasion by commenting below.
