Lost and Found Week

Next week is going to be great fun, to celebrate World Book Day we are having a whole week focusing on the works of Oliver Jeffers, author of Lost and Found and lots more!  Therefore your homework this week is to research the author ready to share the information you find out on Wednesday.  If you have any books written by Jeffers you would like to share, please bring them in but don’t forget to write your name in them.  All homework is due back on Wednesday 5th March.

Maths homework – Think about the different strategies we have used this week to do addition and subtraction, Is it best to take away or count on?  Can you use multiples of 10,100 or 1000 to help you?

Spellings – I have mixed up the spelling groups a bit so everyone should know which new group they are in.  This week we are looking at how to spell words with a negative prefix. Remember to learn the root word too!  Think about the rules we discussed.

I hope you all have a great weekend, See you Monday.

Pentagons: Please use the conversion charts and lines to convert units of measurement.

homework 07-02-14

I’m very excited to see a few more of you are using our blog and even leaving me comments, (thanks Aimee!!) I hope you will find it useful.  It has been a great week with lots of fantastic writing.  I have really enjoyed hearing your advice on how to avoid arguing with your parents, I wonder how many of you will follow that advice and do your homework without any nagging??!

What ever you are doing this weekend, have fun and try and stay dry 🙂

Homework this week is due back on Wednesday 12th February.

English – You have all signed on to ‘Read for my School 2014’ Please go on to the website and start reading, there are 100s of books for you to choose from and lots of prizes to be won.  The website can be found at www.readformyschool.co.uk   Remember your username and password are in lower-case letters.  If you have forgotten your password come and see me.

Maths – to complement our work on negative numbers please complete the sheet.  Could you also watch the weather forecast, look in the newspapers or research on the internet to find the temperature in  Sochi (where the winter Olympics are taking place) and the temperature in Kemble.  Which place has the coldest temperature?  What is the difference in temperature? Does the temperature change throughout the weekend? Is it different in the daytime and night-time?

Spellings – Due to our busy week we didn’t have a chance to do our spelling test this week, as a result I will test you on the “ou” spellings next week.
