Maths:We will be learning how to find the radius and diameter of a circle. We will also learn to recognise what the circumference of a circle is and explore the properties of 3D shapes. Daily practice is posted daily and this will help you to revise key areas of maths. Keep checking Purple Mash for your learning activities. You can add comments and we will post the answers. Please encourage your child to use TT Rockstars and Doodle Maths at home to support their maths learning.
English: We will be writing a recount based on a Harry Potter video clip with an emphasis on using figurative language, parenthesis and passive voice. Try to include as much detail as possible and think about how you could use your senses to do this. A good writer reads over what they have written. Our SPaG focus is on relative clauses and there will be daily activity to complete. Our reading vipers will be a daily text with a range of questions. Our spelling focus is the prefix 'inter'. Please encourage your child to read daily as this will help with their progress. Please remind your child to note down their reading in their reading records. Please sign your child's reading record to allow us to monitor their reading.
Topic: We will be looking at clue evidence to find out about the past.
Health & Wellbeing: Complete a Map of the Heart. Please see Purple Mash for more information.
Reading: Please read with your child daily. Reading books will be changed weekly. Please remember to sign your child's reading record.
Spellings: Please practise the weekly spellings using the bingo grid ideas. You can find helpful resources for spellings on our English subject page.
Maths: An arithmetic paper will be sent home weekly. All children have access to Maths games using Doodlemaths and TT Rockstars supports rapid recall of multiplication and division number facts.
