Team Humber – What’s Happening This Week
(Week Commencing 12th November 2018)
In Humber this week we are learning the following:
In English this week, we are continuing with our class novel – War Horse. We will also be finishing our non-chronological reports about the Christmas Truce. Do pop in and have a look at these once they are finished; they are looking brilliant!
In spelling, punctuation and grammar we are focussing using colons and semicolons to include multi-clause sentences in our writing.
In maths, we are working on ordering and comparing fractions, using equivalent fractions and multiplying and dividing methods to help.
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!
In creative curriculum this week we are focussing on Science, and using dataloggers to conduct different experiments. Continuing with our topic of light, we will be looking at which materials reflect the most light.
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)
Every week the children have a comprehension task to complete in their CGP book. This is due in every Monday, so they have a week to complete it.
Spellings are learnt in class but if you could help with practising at home, this would be brilliant. This week, the children are practising the spellings they didn’t get right in our test of all the words they have learnt so far this term.
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.
