This Week's Learning Note
This week… We took part in the Big School’s Birdwatch during Forest School, then uploaded our findings to the RSPB website. I also submitted a number of your reports (about the Athletics Tournament last term) to the Editor at Potters Bar Community News- I wonder which one will be published? In English, we have imagined what it would have been like to be evacuated in WW2 and then written diary entries. We are now planning a letter that we will be writing home to our Mother. In maths, have used the distributive law to investigate our times tables and the link between 6x and 12x tables. Do make sure you look at the blog post with our shadow pictures, that we created in Science. Finally, we had another wonderful WW2 show and tell this afternoon, hearing about the exploits of many family members during the war. Reading Next week, we will have a poetry-sharing session, so if you would like to get some practise at reading aloud with expression, please find time to rehearse a poem at home. Remember to take your reading record home with you each day, so that your parents can sign it if they hear or see you reading. Also, please keep making a note of any words you don’t know the meaning of, in your reading records, ready for our Dictionary Detectives session on Friday. My favourite word this week was: preposterous- ridiculous This week we have been reading: - The diary of a Young Girl, by Anne Frank Spellings Here are the spellings that we have been practising this week. Please continue to practise them at home, ready for the spelling test on Monday.
We have finished working on our 12 x tables in Magic Ten now; so if you are still not able to recall all of the facts, please keep chanting them at home. Remember that your homework is to practise whichever tables you need to focus on, either writing them out or using www.ttrockstars.com or www.learnyyourtables.co.uk. if you prefer not to be timed.
In English we will be using our evacuee diary entries to help us write letters home to our mothers in London. In maths, we will working on division with remainders. We will also be starting to look at the 7 times table in Magic Ten. There will be no Forest School on Wednesday, since the whole day will be dedicated to looking at the 7 elements of Art.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Mrs Barker, Mrs Trounce, Mrs Munn and Mrs Bramley
