P5T – What we have been learning this week 06.12.19

Literacy

In Spelling, our rule was words ending with a y when turned into plural you add ies. However if the word has a vowel before the y, you just add s. SPELLING P5 WEEK 14

In Reading, we continued with our class novel. We visualised the text by studying what the author said and created a picture to show the description. In our group books, we were predicted what would happen next and compared it to what we would like to happen next.

After our trip to Frozen II, we had to review the film. This involved what we liked about the characters and the setting as well as doing a brief summary. We also drew our favourite character. There was a varying number of stars by the critics!

 

Activities to do at home:

  • Sumdog
  • Make an imaginative story and use lots of adjectives
  • Practise our spelling rule by coming up with new words
  • Try dictation (see last week’s post)
  • Practise using a dictionary

 

Maths and Numeracy

We have been practising the 7 timestables to help us with our multiplication and division work. We have also been applying our area knowledge in real life contexts which we will continue to do as part of our learning. As we have finished our work on area we will move on to perimeter next week. We are enjoying working with Sumdog to develop our mental maths.

Activities to do at home:

  • Sumdog
  • Division sum
