Please read every night. I have sat with every pupil this week and showed them their current reading data. We have set some personal targets too. I will be able to share all this with you too during Parents Day in October.
I have also sent home another Greek Legend “ The Giant Wooden Horse”. We see the return of Odysseus- this is a story set during the Trojan wars before he set off on his odyssey!
Once you have read the story of the wooden horse write a paragraph in your homework book SUMMARIZING - I have modeled this skill in class and we have already had a go independently to! Take care, make sure you sequence the main events so your summary is clear.
We have explored Roman Numerals to 1000- it is tricky! We learnt the mnemonic:
I value Xylophones like cows dig milk!
We have also worked on IXL unit A6. It would be wonderful if you can achieve 100 percent on A6- be resilient!
For those who have got 100% and for those who need more practice press the button below to complete the challenges. For the less confident have a go at beginners and intermediate and for the confident go for the advanced.
The suffix OUS
Courageous outrageous (keep e to that the g is a soft g)
Orange words: Ancient and language
In class council today we decided that it was important for parents to sign our homework book each week. We agreed that when we have completed a task- but there is no written evidence- the children will write the task (few words) and the parent will sign. This makes it easier to see who may need support.
Thank you for all you support, it is very much appreciated
