We have began looking at Newspaper Reports in class this week. Looking at some pictures the class were able to create fantastic headlines using alliteration and puns. We have continued with our story of Holes, and were impressed when Stanley dug his first hole. We have been focussing on mental calculation this week, to improve our ability to calculation simple questions quickly and efficiently.
Have a fantastic weekend.
Information for Parents
We hope you and everyone in your family is well during these difficult times.
At this point, we would hope your children are choosing to complete work at home using their study books, websites or anything that we have put on our class page. We will continue to upload ideas of work the children can be completing whilst they are at home. This work is not a requirement, as your children may already be working hard on other aspects of their education. We will provide ideas for you and your children to work through over at least the next 3-4 weeks.
Once again we hope you are well, and everyone is keeping safe at home.
All the best
Mr Henchy and Mrs Rakhra
As you are aware the children have their ‘CGP’ revision books. It is expected that the children are working through these books whilst they are at home. I am not going to say that this piece of work on this day and so on. The children have the following revision books;
Some of these books have lots of information and a small amount of questions. For these books children must be making revision notes in order to help them to remember what they are revising. However, some books are completely questions, some of these books have answers in the back that the children could mark themselves.
All the revision notes that your child makes (there should be a large amount) should happen either in their red revision book, or their homework book. If they run out of space, then other paper will also be fine.
English ideas for home school work
|Read at least a chapter of a book each day and summarise the chapter in your own words. You could also read to your siblings, if you have any, as I'm sure they would love that!|
|Create a comic strip with pictures and writing to re-tell a story or part of a story that you have been reading.|
|Once you have finished a whole book, re-write the ending of the book and change how the book finishes to something completely different and your choice.|
Design a front cover and a blurb for your own short story. Read a few different ideas of blurbs to help you.
Choose a couple of SPAG aspects that you are unsure of/forgotten and create a poster using your SPAG study guide.
For example; Subordinate clauses and Abstract nouns.
|Create a colourful spelling rainbow with spelling words from the spelling packs you were given to help practise your spelling.|
|Take a picture of your garden or an area you may go for a walk and create a setting description of the picture. Remember to use the five senses and figurative language.|
|Write a postcard to your future self explaining what it is like during these times and what aspects of your life you won't take for granted again once this is all over. For example; you won't take going to the park with your friend for granted or going to your favourite restaurant with your family.|
