Mini Maths

Today we were a small but perfectly formed class of eleven. As so many children were away celebrating Eid, we had some fun solving maths mystery puzzles and eliminating suspects one by one according to the answers. We found out which team had stolen the Football cup, who had hidden the sports day sacks and which pirate was promoted to Captain. Although these were fun, there was a lot of using and applying maths going on and children were engaged in learning along the way. Tomorrow we will be working on SPaG puzzles - using and applying spellings, word classes and a lot more. 

For those of you still celebrating - have fun and see you Thursday.

Homework

Homework for this week.

As we have been learning about time this week, could you please work with your children at home on this. It is a difficult subject for most children to grasp - one child today asked me why the third hand is called the second hand! 

In particular, reading analogue clocks and talking about when programmes or events start and finish. I have asked them to note down the times of five activities that they take part in. To extend this, please discuss how long these activities might last and when they might finish. 

English for this week involves their spellings. Some children are not learning them and telling me that they don't have time! Please work with your children on this at home. It is important to, not only be able to spell words correctly, but also to use them correctly in sentences. The words this week are particularly difficult as they end in -gue or -que. Children need to find out the meanings of these and put them into sentences.

Thank you for your support, enjoy the lovely weather this weekend. Let's hope it lasts for some time! 

HERE COME THE VIKINGS!

What an exciting start to our topic!

Year3 have spent the afternoon checking their Viking facts and creating these colourful shields.
