## P5B Reflective Friday 30.10.20

Good afternoon everyone.

Literacy

Our spelling pattern

• This suffix begins with a consonant and therefore the root words do not change unless the root word ends in y, in which case y becomes i
• e.g.    rapid +ly
• e.g.    tidy + i + ly
• If root word ends in l then simply add ly (gradual + ly – gradually – double l)

Here are the words

loudly             cheaply

foolishly         rapidly

silently           secretly

happily            tidily

easily               quietly

Our tricky words were

very                  every

Here are the children’s reflections.

Literacy

Our spelling pattern

• We were adding er / est to an adjective ending in y to compare 2 things, We have to change y to i and add er / est (windy = windier)

Here are the words

cheekier                sunniest

stormier                 sleepiest

luckier                   sturdiest

unhappiest            messier

craziest                  angrier

people                      because

We continued to work on our descriptive skills this week for writing. We created a paragraph about our favourite place. We learned about how using effective openers can improve our writing.

We also continued working on the skills of taking notes, we have been researching and learning about Black history month, this week we looked at the importance of Rosa Parks. We took notes from a piece of reading and a video. From our notes we created an information poster to show our understanding.

Ideas for home learning

Research further about Black history month and find out about important people who helped contribute to or change society.

Maths

We started working on the column method for subtraction and began exchanging or borrowing when the larger number was on the bottom of the sum. Here is a video to remind us.

We have been learning more about shape and worked on calculating the area of a flat shape. We used the formula Length x Breadth = Area. We spoke about how useful this measurement is for life outside school.

Ideas for home learning

Work on finding the area of a right angle triangle by halving the formula above. We started this so you could work on it.

Have a fantastic holiday week

Good afternoon everyone.

Literacy

Our spelling pattern

• We are still focusing on adding suffix er / est.
• Remember to double the final consonant in the root word before adding er / est to keep the preceding vowel short (flat + t + er / est = flatter)
• Drop the final e before adding er / est (late + er / est = latest)

Here are the words

bravest              later

wiser                ripest

finer                 thinner

flattest              slimmer

fittest                hotter

Our tricky words were

Earth                 learn

Here are the children’s reflections from our busy week and ideas for home learning.

Good afternoon everyone.

Literacy

Our spelling pattern was

• Adding suffix er / est.
• er and est are both suffixes beginning with a vowel and so are treated in the same way as ing and ed
• Remember Double the final consonant in the root word before adding the suffix er / est to keep the vowel before short.

Here are the words

rounder                    brightest

neater                     hardest

softer                       sharpest

smaller                    deepest

longer                     quickest

Here are the children’s reflections from our busy week and ideas for home learning.

Hope you have all had a lovely long weekend, my apologies for our reflections being delayed this week. I had some ICT issues on Friday.

Literacy

Our spelling pattern was

• Suffixing ing / ed to root words ending in consonant + y.
• When suffixing with ing the root word does not change.
• When suffixing with ed change y to i then add ed

crying                             cried

trying                             tried

pitying                           pitied

studying                         studied

burying                          buried

applying                         applied

We concentrated on our descriptive skills this week for writing. We created a paragraph about a picture and thought about how we could use up levelled vocabulary to improve them.

We also began to learn about the skills of taking notes, we used a piece of reading about our sight and took notes of what information we thought was important.

Ideas for home learning

Writing really basic sentences and then using our editing skills to up level and improve the sentence.

Maths

We continued to work on understanding the value of digits in numbers up to 100,000, we looked at what ‘more than’ and ‘less than’ mean and used the appropriate symbols to help us.

We have been learning more about 3D objects. We were looking at the properties of different shapes by using real life objects and also P.E to help us.

Ideas for home learning

Other areas

We started looking at the work of the famous artist, Henri Rousseau. We discussed how his work really fits in with our environment topic. We practised our sketching skills using plants and trees as a key feature.

We were learning how to use Microsoft Teams.

Good afternoon everyone.

This week in P5 we started our new reading books, we read the first 10 pages and then concentrated on describing what we had found out about the main character. Class reading will be done on a Thursday and then pages will be given to read at home for the following Wednesday.

Our spelling pattern was

• Learning to add suffix ing / ed with no doubling.
• Learning more about root words before adding suffix ing / ed

Suffixing Rules:

• If you have a root word containing long vowel sounds – you just add ing

Here are the words

Magic e                          Long Vowel

phoned                           avoided

escaping                         delayed

thriving                          displayed

driving                           flowing

Here are the children’s reflections and ideas for home learning.
