Friday 27th November 2020.


It's been quite an exciting week!  Thank you to all those children who completed their home learning on Tuesday and either emailed it or uploaded it onto the class blog.  We've also looked at all the fantastic work from your homework grids on the class blog today. It's lovely to see all the creative work that the children have been doing so far this half term.  Don't forget that the next deadline is the 11th December.


In English we have been getting into the role of characters from our story and imagining what they might be saying to each other.  We then wrote this as direct speech remembering how to use inverted commas correctly.  We've also been practising using subordinate conjunctions when writing a letter to the old man in the story.  In Maths we've been focusing on subtraction and practising how to exchange when using column subtraction. We did this practically by using place value counters and deines. 


Don't forget you can still buy the body scrub!


Have a wonderful weekend smiley

Reading books and Road Reading Map books.


Reading books - Children should bring in their reading books on a Tuesday and Thursday.  They will receive a new one to take home, please also send in their reading record so we can see how they are getting on at home. However if they've not read their book then they don't need to bring it in they just need their reading record so we can check it.


Road Reading Map books - The children can also bring them in on Tuesday and Thursday.  However the books will need to be quarantined for 24 hours so we won't send out new ones until the next day.  Therefore they will be able to select new ones on Wednesday and Friday.


I hope this helps and if you do have any queries please let me know.
