Week 5 in Class 5

admin on: Class 5

Another week is over! We are zooming through this half term, now. This week, we have had our first 'virtual' visitor! We had a Zoom call with the owners of Read bookshop and the author Harriet Muncaster. She led a great workshop on how she is inspired to write. The children got to draw a dragon, create ideas for their own 'world' and she answered questions submitted by pupils. Here are some photographs of the event. It really is lovely to see that despite everything going on at the moment, we can still have a visitor inspire and enthuse the children! If your child has pre-ordered a signed version of her book, it should be with your child early next week.

Homework

A big thank you to everyone who has been keeping up the homework so far. The Mathletics and spellings are the main homework components and anything I put on Teams is a little bit of extra work. Apologies for the HUGE document I put on Teams last week, I should have mentioned that reading this was only an extra task if the children wanted to prepare for Wednesday's topic lesson. All the children got the opportunity to look at this document in the lesson and make notes. 

The homework this week is:

  • Mathletics: Rounding. We have done a lot of practice this week on rounding, and we are feeling more confident as a class now. I think this task will just solidify rounding in their heads!
  • Spellings are the same as last week and are listed below.
  • No assignments on Teams this week, but please check you can log in to it if you haven't already.

Have a lovely weekend and stay safe!

Week 4 in Class 5

admin on: Class 5

This week, we have come up with mnemonics to help us remember the order of the planets in our solar system. There were some very entertaining ones! Hopefully, they will help the children remember the planets. Also, we have worked hard to get our addition and subtraction written methods back on track - I was very impressed! We have also learned about the British astronaut Tim Peake and we will be writing a biography about him next week.

A big thank you to everyone who has logged on to Microsoft Teams and completed the quiz. If you haven't already, please log on to Teams with your child and have a look at the quiz. Teams will be really important moving forward in the event of any remote learning, as well as being used for parents' evening. If you have any issues logging on, please get in touch. Remember, the username needs to end with @netherthongprimary.co.uk

Homework

If any of the children are having trouble gaining access to a laptop to complete Mathletics, please let me know and I can arrange for them to attend homework club on Wednesday lunchtimes. I am keen for all the children to continue the great start they have had completing the homework; it really helps them consolidate what they are learning in school. 

  • Mathletics this week is on the written method for addition and subtraction. You will need a pen and paper with you to complete them. 
  • Your child should have come home this week with a library book. Please ensure they are reading it. I am keen to start a reading log in their planners next week, where I write in them and it would be great to see the planners being written in at home as well.
  • I have put a pre-reading task on Microsoft Teams. This is some research on the planets in our solar system, ready for some written work in science next week. Just give the documents a read. 
  • The new spelling list is below.

Behaviour

A massive well done to the class this week with daily routines. I have noticed them coming into class much more focussed and ready to learn. It really helps to have these routines in place as it can maximise learning time. 

Just a reminder of our theme for well-being this half term is 'being kind' and we are encouraging all the children in school to think before they speak and ask themselves are their comments necessary, helpful and kind. I am continuing to talk to the class about this theme and it would be great if these discussions could happen at home as well.

Coming up

Coming up next week is our virtual author visit from Harriet Muncaster. She will be hosting a live talk on her new book Victoria Stitch: Bad and Glittering. This will be on Wednesday 7th October and will last approximately 40 minutes. I, for one, am looking forward to getting the opportunity to hear from a successful author! If you have preordered a signed book from her, please send your child in with £5 on the day of the talk. 

Have a great weekend, and keep smiling!

Thank you for another productive week in Class 5. We have learnt about the phases of the Moon and why we have seasons here on Earth. We have also fully got started with our maths curriculum this week and it has gone well!

The homework this week is:

1.) Two tasks on Mathletics on mental addition and subtraction. Please read the guidelines, which give you different ways to work them out in your head.

2.) The same 8 spelling words as last week. We will be having a second test on these on Friday 2nd October.

Thumb

Crumb

Doubt

Climb

Tomb

Numb

Debt

Comb

3.) I have put a quiz on Microsoft Teams for you to try out this weekend. It's a bit of fun, and I'm mainly just looking to see how you get on using teams. 

With Teams, you need to type in your username followed by @netherthongprimary.co.uk

Have a lovely weekend!
