Foss What’s Happening This Week
(Week Commencing 4th June 2018 )
In Foss this week we are learning the following:
In English this week we are learning to write instructions using fronted adverbials and learning how to locate and identify expanded noun phrases.
In spelling, punctuation and grammar we are focussing on using words with the suffix ‘ous’
In maths we are focusing on angles. Year 4 will be learning how to identify and order angles and Year 5 will be drawing angles and solving problems to identify the missing angles from shapes.
Maths basics are key skills/facts children need to know. In maths basics this week we are focusing converting analogue to digital time.
We will be focusing on our trip from countryside live and entering another competition (more information to follow)
Homework is set every night. From Monday to Thursday children will have:
- 4 very short maths questions
- 3 sentences to write
- reading (+ one more reading over the weekend)
Spellings are learnt in class but if you could help with practising at home, this would be brilliant.
Spellings we are focusing on in class this week are:
Knowing times tables and number bonds (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 login 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.
