Humber Class What’s Happening This Week Commencing 22nd January 2018

Team Humber –  What’s Happening This Week

(Week Commencing 22nd January 2018)

In Humber this week we are learning the following:

 

English:

In English this week we are studying our new class text: ‘Kiss the dust’ by Elizabeth Laird.

We are exploring the setting of an Iraqi bazaar in drama with Mr Jackson, and writing setting descriptions as well as a diary entry.

SPaG/Phonics:

In spelling, punctuation and grammar we are focussing on using double adjective starter sentences, and including these in our writing.  

Maths:

In maths we are looking at the properties of 2D and 3D shapes, including angles. We are practising measuring angles with a protractor, and working out missing angles on a straight line and in triangles.

Maths Basics:

Maths basics  are key skills/facts children need to know.  In maths basics this week we are focusing on decimal – fraction – percentage equivalents. Test your child to see how many they know!

Creative Curriculum:

In creative curriculum this week we are focussing on research around our key text. We will be looking at the stories and experiences of refugees.  

Homework:

 

Homework is set every night.  From Monday to Thursday children will have:

  • A short maths sheet (between 4 and 6 questions).
  • Reading for 10 minutes (+ one more reading over the weekend)
  • A short English task (3 sentences).  

 

Spellings are learnt in class but if you could help with practising at home, this would be brilliant. This week we are looking at the -cious and -tious spelling patterns.

 

Knowing times tables and number bond (pairs of numbers to 10/20 and beyond) well helps children make massive progress in maths so any help you can give your child will be great.  Your child has a Number Gym log in and password in their planners and if they could go on Number Gym at home, even for 5 minutes, it will really help them have a secure knowledge and faster recall of times tables and number facts.
