P5W Reflective Friday 20.9.19

Literacy:

We have been writing imaginative stories using the skills we have been practising, like using interesting openers and vocabulary. We have continued to read our class novel ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles’ and have looked at how the author describes different creatures in the book. In spelling, we are starting to look at spelling rules for adding the suffixes ‘er’ and ‘est’ to words.

Home learning activity: When you are reading at home, see how many words ending in ‘er’ and ‘est’ you can find to make your own spelling list.

Maths and numeracy:

We have continued to learn about place value and are learning how to round numbers to the nearest ten, hundred, and thousand. We have been studying 3D shapes to discover how many faces, edges, and vertices they have.

Home learning activity: When you are out shopping, think about how you could round up the amount of what you are buying. Try to estimate how much money you need.

Other areas of the curriculum:

In art, we followed instructions to draw a cute/scary monster. Some of us thought it would be difficult, but we really enjoyed it! In P.E. we practised aiming, passing, and trapping the ball.
