Team Humber – What’s Happening This Week
(Week Commencing 22nd October 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 looking at some WW1 poetry written by Wilfred Owen. We are writing letters from a soldier back from the trenches.
In spelling, punctuation and grammar we are focusing using colons and semicolons to include multi-clause sentences in our writing.
In maths, we are consolidating our long division skills, as well as looking at factors, prime numbers and square numbers.
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 focusing on creating a chronological timeline of WW! – researching the key events and locating them in the war.
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 we are looking at adding suffixes to root words ending in -fer.
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.
