Week Commencing: Monday 29th November 2021

 

As you will have seen, we have issued the children with some books for homework. The Purple and Red revision books should be kept at home to be returned to school later in the year. They should not be written on. The children have a Maths and an English work book to do the work in.

The homework this week:

Maths: Ordering Numbers pg2-3

English: Word Meaning pg1 and Nouns pg22

English: We are going to start looking at newspapers. We will start by examining and identifying the features. Initially the focus will be on the headlines and subheadings and writing an opening paragraph. 

Maths: We are continuing to look at fractions this week. We will be multiplying and dividing them.

Geography: We are going to be looking at South America and Australia and discussing lines of longitude and latitude. 

PE: Our PE day will be Fridays. Children must ensure they attend school in their PE kits (plain white top, plain black shorts/joggers and trainers). Please note: studs will have to be removed prior to the PE lesson.

There are only 3 school weeks until Christmas! We will be continuing to practise carols ready for the Christmas performance.

 

*Uniform: Please remember to wear plain black school shoes. You may wish to wear one pair of small studs, however no other jewellery is permitted.
