The second week of our writing project has been about writing diary entries in the past, acting in role as a character from the film Wall-e and writing conversations between characters using four different types of sentences;

  • questions
  • exclamations
  • statements
  • commands

We talked about the different types of punctuation which go with each type of sentence.

In maths we have learnt a new strategy called "Column Method." Sometimes you have to carry the numbers over to the next column when you add, but you need to remember you have put them there. We also found out that sometimes you need to borrow from another column because there are not enough ones in the ones column.

In Science, only one of our seeds germinated and that was the seed in soil that the Orange group planted. We wrote some conclusions to say why we thought that had happened.

This week we have also been working really hard on out handwriting and presentation.

How you can help!

  • PE days are Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) and remove any earrings.
  • Homework is due on a Monday. It is the children’s responsibility to make sure that their homework is completed every week and placed into the homework box on a Monday morning in order for it to be marked.
  • Spelling tests are on a Monday morning and the following week’s spellings will be handed out on the same day.

Home Learning

Here are some activities that you can do at home:

  • Keep practising our ‘Harvest Samba’ song

  • This week we have been trying really hard to extend our sentences and make them a little bit longer. Can you practise writing sentences using conjunctions? Conjunctions are words that join sentences together like ‘and’, ‘because’, ‘but’ and ‘so’.
  • Here is a useful website to help practise spellings each week. Spell Zone has a range of games which link to the children’s spelling rule for each week. Why don’t you try the word search or have a go at the bouncing anagrams?
