This week the children had a chance to reflect upon their own learning in English by writing out what they think they do well and what they think they need to improve. They also got a chance to practise and perform the playscripts they wrote themselves. Some of these were performed well, but many needed a reminder that they aren't robots! We'll need to work on public speaking skills more!
In Maths the children have learned to calculate the perimeter and area of simple rectangles. They also know how to classify angles as acute, right, obtuse, straight or reflex. The homework this week looks at both of these concepts further and is due as usual on Tuesday. The children even began to draw tessellations. What's a tessellation again?
Did any of you learn anything in particular you want to share?
write - Take your time and write neatly.
correspond - We will correspond by sending a letter to them.
apply - Did you apply to be on Student Council?
criticise - Don't criticise people, it makes them feel bad.
hopped - The bunny hopped across the garden.
hoped - I hoped to get an autograph from the footballer.
tried - The team tried their best.
began - The story began a long time ago.
begun - The movie has already begun so sit down!
sentence - I can't think of a sentence for this word.
Remember to bring in your PE kit and reading folder each day. People going swimming on Wednesday will need to remember to bring their swimming kit also.
Have a look at this website to see some cool tessellations and further information on how they can be formed.
Have a great weekend!
