Week 6 Highlights

Another week down, the past 6 weeks have flown by! This week, a few children have earned the privilege of writing with a handwriting pen. This means they are consistent with their presentation across all subject areas. Please encourage your child to focus on their handwriting, spelling and grammar so that they too can earn this right. Of course, I will continue to give these out over the year so keep persevering!

Our favourite moments…

v  In English this week, we wrote about our persuasive letters to urge young men to join the army. I am impressed by the standard of writing the children have completed. Their letters really were convincing!

v  In Science, we looked at household items and related their purposes to the properties of the material. We had to justify our reasons and explain clearly why a certain material couldn’t be used. In addition to this, we created a Wordle to creatively show the scientific vocabulary we already knew.

v  In Maths this week, we completed our place value unit of work. We looked at comparing numbers up to 1 million, rounding to 1 million and negative numbers. The children are working well to explain their answers and justify their mathematical thinking.

Remember…

1. The children have been set a WW2 project, which is due Wednesday 23rd October 2019. As an added extra, I have also sent a Maths homework booklet which your child can work through over the next few weeks. This booklet is not compulsory. I will still be checking that children have done their spelling sentences on a weekly basis.

2. Please ensure your child brings their planner on Wednesday as their weekly spelling test will be recorded in there.

Have a great weekend,

Mrs Webley and Miss Begum

Week 5 Highlights

Even though the school week was shorter, there has been plenty of learning taking place. The children have worked tremendously hard and I am really proud of the high standard of work which is being produced by many.

Our favourite moments…

v  In English this week, we drafted and edited our persuasive letters. We have been convincing the young men to join the army (before they were conscripted of course). One child said, “I really enjoyed being given the time to improve my work” In SPaG, using a quiz, we learned about using commas for parenthesis.

v  In Science, we explored which material was best to create a WW2 Blackout. One group explained, “It only took 1 black piece of card and 19 sheets of polystyrene to cover the light source.” The children worked well in their groups, recorded their results and wrote clear conclusions.

v  In Maths this week, we continued with developing our knowledge of place value from 100,000 to 1 million. We learned about powers of 10 and understood how to find the term-to-term rule when looking at number sequences.
