Times Tables

Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We will be doing Cracking Times Tables on Monday! It is vital that you keep practising and improving on your scores.

 

English

Title – Can I think of rhyming words?

This week we have been looking at ‘The Sound Collector’ poem by Roger McGough which includes lots of rhyming words. This week your homework is thinking of different rhyming words. If you have a rhyming dictionary at home you could use this to help you!

Cherries and Grapes – Look at the list of words you have been given. You must think of 3 rhyming words for each of the words given to you. You must fill in the table with these words and then glue in the table into your book.

Oranges and Pears – Look at the list of words you have been given. You must think of 3 rhyming words for each of the words given to you. You must fill in the table with these words and then glue in the table into your book.

Strawberries and Watermelons – Look at the list of words you have been given. You must think of 4 rhyming words for each of the words given to you. You must fill in the table with these words and then glue in the table into your book.

We will be checking for a date and title and beautiful presentation and handwriting.

 

Reading

As usual, we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book. We will be collecting Home School Books in on Monday. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book. It is not acceptable for Home School Books to be late into school, or not to have the relevant reading in. You will be made to miss a break time to catch up if this is not done to the expected standard. Remember you could be reader of the week!

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Bartropp and Miss Weston

Spellings

You have been given a new spelling list by your teacher and are expected to write at least FIVE spelling sentences to show that you understand what the words mean. Do not pick the five easiest spellings – challenge yourself and use a dictionary to help you. These will be checked next Friday during the next spelling lesson – let’s see who can get 3 house points!

 

Cracking Times Tables

Please keep working on your times tables and try and beat your score from last week! We will be looking for those children who are really trying to improve each week. The Government state that all children should know their tables from 1-10 by the end of Year 4.

Don’t forget your Home School Book on Monday and make sure you have recorded all of your reading properly. We will be looking for a new ‘Reader of the Week’ and expect AT LEAST four reading entries in the Home School Book.

Your English homework is to continue your comic strip about Just William which we set you last week.  It should be handed in by Tuesday 23rd May.

 

Maths

In class this week we have been making scale model furniture for a Hogwart’s bedroom.  For your homework, we would like you to make a scale model of a piece of furniture in your house.  It needs to be a cube or cuboid shape e.g. a washing machine, wardrobe, bed etc.  You will need to measure the real life piece of furniture and then scale it down to a suitable size for your model.  You will need to make a 2D net of your shape and then decorate and colour it to look like the furniture then stick it together to make the 3D shape.
