This week, we carried out a homophone investigation. Which homophones do you get mixed up when you are writing?
Have another go at playing the Homophone Pair Game. Which level can you play confidently? Do you understand what the different words mean? Can you use them in your own narrative sentences?
Create your own homophone posters like the ones above to display on the learning wall.
What are you reading?
Please create a Book Review to encourage other children in the year group to borrow the book this year.
Introduce the book.
Tell us about the book, but don’t give away the ending!
Tell us about your favourite part of the book or make a connection with another book / film / TV programme / a real life experience.
Give a recommendation (e.g., If you like…, you will love this book or I recommend this book to anyone who likes…).
We will display quality reviews in the Book Corner.
This week, in Maths we have been exploring the world of 3D shape and learning how to use our key mathematical vocabulary to describe the different shapes with precision.
For our home learning this week, we are to select 5 different 3D shapes and describe their properties, before finding examples of them in the real world.
Remember, the words we have been using are:
If you want to investigate more about nets of 3D shapes, try this site which has lots of examples that you can print out and build.
5F have been reading non chronological reports in Guided Reading. This week children are to create a page for our class book about a fictional or real animal that lives in a river based habitat. This could be an animal that lives either entirely or partially in the water.
Think carefully about how the non-chronological reports are structured and the different sections of information you believe the reader will need to understand all about your animal.

Homework is due in on Friday, 25th November
