Year 4/5 - Birch

Weekly update

Friday, November 16th, 2018.

 

This week in English we have completed our Iron Man themed science fiction stories.

 

In maths, we have looked at how we can use rounding to provide estimates – which we can use to check the validity of our addition and subtraction calculations. Why not round some 2, 3 and 4 digit numbers?

 

We enjoyed a fabulous performance from Theatre Alibi – Table Mates – a rhapsody of song, dance and storytelling. The pupils were full of questions about the characters and about life in the theatre.

 

Please remember to check and discuss weather forecasts with your child - we have had some wild and exciting weather to enjoy. Children should have a coat available at school every day.

 

 

Dates for your Diary:

Swimming for Birch and Elm Class continues every Monday.

Dance Club performance (some y4/5s): 20th November

Science Workshop: 21st November

 

 

HOMEWORK

 

Spelling homework: we have been looking at suffices – word endings. Sometimes a double consonant is needed - so stop becomes stopped or stopping. Please can children think of 5 examples and put these words into sentences, underlining where they have used the double consonant for a selection of suffix endings. (We have taught –ing, -ed, -en and –er)

 

Children should try and read 5 times a week and record this in their reading record.

 

 

MATHS - please complete online multiplication tables test at   http://www.timestables.me.uk/index.htm .

Children can choose the tables to test - please choose 40 questions. Do this twice over the week and record scores into purple homework books.
