In the words of Reuben at the end of the day, "that week flew by!" I agree! This week has been an assessment week primarily. Children have completed and taken up their maths assessment. They also worked through a times table assessment, although some still need to finish this. Early signs point to decent progress by most. Hopefully within the last couple weeks of term we can go over those concepts that have been lingering under the tricky column throughout the year.
In English, we have read and written replies to the Canadian Pen Pals. I'll try to send those off in the post early next week so they get over to Canada before the last day of school there (29th June)!
In topic, we have learned the different regions of the ear and the different parts within those regions. The ear is certainly a complex piece of our bodies! It's a wonder how we hear at all! Well design musical instruments next week, so be sure to bring some materials that you may want to use if you haven't done so already!
Top Spellers this week were: Ethan F, Dominic, Leighton, Ellie F, Reuben, Layla, Jasmin and Grace. Well done to you all for getting 10/10! +2 HPs each!
Week 9 Spellings (ly endings):
Remember the spelling rules...
if it ends in y, drop it and add ily
f it ends in an e, drop it and add ly
if it ends in a different consonant, just add ly.
Remember, these are just rules, some words don't like to follow them!
Our class trip on Thursday went excellently! We went to the Discovery Museum in Newcastle. Children learned about magnetic forces, air pressure, gravity, food dyes, optical illusions and more! What was the most interesting thing you learned?
Homework this week is just that, to explain something new you learned from the class trip. Remember to use lots of detail and proper punctuation! Don't forget neat handwriting too!
Be sure to check out the activity summary page that you were given in your folder, it will help you remember the names of the different activities. You also get a brand new pencil too!
The Good Work Award this week went to Jasmin for her good work in maths.
The Good Behaviour Award this week went to Sophie for setting a good example within the class.
Our Class DOJO winner this week was Alfie, who finished with 15 DOJOs due to the totals from last week being carried over to this week.
Well done to you all!
Thank-you to everyone for the birthday cards and well wishes also!
Just a reminded that next week on Thursday (23rd June) the school will be closed to students and staff as it is being used as a polling station.
Children still need to being in their PE kit, read and record in their yellow log book, practise their times tables and spellings and remember homework as usual!
Have a great weekend everyone!
