Week beginning 2.11.20
Willow students had a very positive first week back after half term and got straight back into their stride.
We were re-visiting diaries this week with the Carnival mini-topic inspiring us to write as if we had visited our local carnival. We also learnt about the Rio Carnival which shares some similarities with our own traditions but also has many differences. We wrote diaries as if we were there too. If you can’t travel, you can still imagine!
We did a lot of work on measuring this week using practical equipment and converting units. We solved problems and applied our knowledge in practical situations. All of these skills are so useful for life and just go to show how important this subject is.
We did a mini-topic on carnival as mentioned above. We learnt about the traditions and origins of our local carnival and used it to inspire some amazing art work and writing. It linked to our work on Victorians as, like many other things, they set down a few rules and created the modern format we enjoy today.
Reading needs to continue at home as it will in school. Please try to hear your child as often as you can. If you can’t hear them read, take time to talk to them about what they are reading.
New spellings went home on Friday and each child knows which word list they are working on. They have a sheet to practise each day and will be tested on those words next Friday.
Each child knows what times table they should be working on. Again, a little run through every day is best or as often as you can. Don’t forget to use ttrockstars!
There is an additional maths homework sheet which is on this page but there is no need to print it as every child received a paper copy.
