Humber Class What’s Happening This Week Commencing 5th February 2018

Team Humber –  What’s Happening This Week

(Week Commencing 5th February 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 some of the characters through drama, and writing an escape narrative piece.

SPaG/Phonics:

In spelling, punctuation and grammar we are focussing on verb starter sentences. .

Maths:

In maths we are looking at perimeter and area, as well as converting between different measurements. Check that your child knows the conversions between mm, cm, m, kg, g, l and ml.

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’s spellings are:

 

immediately

frequently

sincerely

cemetery

rhythm

Rhyme

stomach

shoulder

 

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.
