We continue to build our fluency in maths - play Numbots to help here.
You might want to challenge yourself to learn how to tell the time.
We have been looking at some tricky trigraphs, and then what happens when we add suffixes to these words.
(Suffixes like -s, -es, -ed, -ing are found at the end of words).
Can you play with these words in some silly sentences?
buzz- buzzes, boxes, foxes, grapes, fusses, fixes, mixes, itches, hedges, badges, wages
We continue to learn about keeping healthy and this week's focus is keeping safe in the sun. Watch this Slip, Slap, Slop, Wrap video.
We have been revising our times tables and this week your child will bring home a sheet to use. You might also like to play the times tables quiz on Hit the Button. Most children are learning their 2x, 5x and 10x tables while others are now working on their 3x and 4x tables. Remember to really know these ones well before you move on to other tables, so you have quick and accurate recall.
We are learning about homophones which are words that sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings. Again, your child has a sheet with a game on it. I find it useful to draw pictures with the words to help visualise each spelling with its meaning.
Here is a link to BBC Bitesize.
We continue to learn about keeping healthy and this week's focus is on making exercise fun. Why don't you and your family dance silly dances with the Radio Dance Through the Decades podcast?
Read every day. Whilst you are reading, be a text detective and look for words that describe a character. Add these to your word collections.
We have been looking at spelling words with the tch trigraph in.
Add s or es to the end to change the words, then put them into a sentence.
The horse jumped over twenty ditches around the field.
Ditch, fetch, hitch, stitch, switch, twitch
Mid-Year Revision, pages 259 - 262.
Review 7, pages 139 - 140
You might also want to play Numbots again!
Look at the igh trigraph - three letters that make the sound 'I'. How many words can you find that have the igh trigraph in? Can you grow the words by adding suffixes at the end or by changing one letter?
If I can spell fight, I can spell fright - and frighten - and frightening - and frightened.
If I can spell light, I can spell slight - and blight - and lightening and also enlighten.
Here is a video of a teacher showing you how to blend igh to read words as well.
There are two parts to your maths homework this week:
Part one is to continue building your maths fluency by playing Numbots. Don't forget that we will be giving out housepoints to children who work hard!
Part two is measuring. We have been measuring in centimetres and I have attached a link to remind you how to do it.
Measure things around your home. Can you find something EXACTLY 7cm, exactly 10cm and exactly 22cm long?
Draw a line that is 6cm long and one that is 15cm long.
Extension: draw a house and measure the lengths of each side.
