Week Commnencing 4th July 2011
Literacy– Next week we will be finishing and publishing our animal mini books. If you have any more information you need find; get researching this weekend! Remember you need to write about: their appearance, diet, habitat, include some fabulous facts and write an index and glossary!
Phonics- Have fun reading your book at home and show your family how well you know your sounds. Challenge yourself by closing your book and see if you can remember the whole story! Tell it to somebody using lots of different voices for the characters. Don’t forget to learn your spellings too.
Numeracy – Next week it is time for addition and subtraction challenges. Show someone at home all the methods you already know to add and subtract. Can you teach them to somebody else?At home, see if you can find all the different ways to make 25 using addition and subtraction.For example, 10 + 10 + 5. Bring your number sentences into school to show us how persistent you have been!
We are setting new homework challenges on Mathletics to keep you busy, so make sure you log on and get learning!
Over the next few weeks we will be starting an exciting new homework project! At home find a shoe box and decorate it to reflect your inner qualities. Then think of and find some things from home that are special to you. It could be photographs, toys or something else that is really important to you. Keep them in your special shoe box at home and write about the reasons why they are so mean so much to you. In the last week of term you will be sharing your special objects with another year group so keep them safe.
We will also be continuing our habitat boxes next week, so keep finding facts out about your animal for your mini book. Try to make your own mini book at home about something else you have learnt about this year at school.
Please return Parents Evening slips as soon as possible so that we can arrange a convenient time for you to come into school. Also remember blue books and library book. Get organised and pack your bag ready for school on Monday! We can’t wait to see all the Get Talking Get Learning you have done over the weekend.
