This is your child’s Mission possible Homework Booklet for Summer 2. The home learning activities are linked to the Mission that the children are focusing on and they will be carefully chosen to develop different skills in relation to a variety of curriculum subjects.
What we've been doing this week
In PE we have started our sports day practise for our sports day which is on Friday 15th at 10am-11am. We have been practising lots of different races and will pick the classes favourites ready to compete on the day!
In English the children have been reading 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' and have come up with actions for the story. The actions have helped us to be able to re-read the story without using the book to help us. We have also made our own masks and performed the story in small groups too! Next week we are going to look at rewriting our own versions of the story...
In maths this week we have looked back at addition and subtraction and have began to answer some very tricky calculations. We have looked at how we can use a 100 square to add or subtract 10 and some of us have even been adding and subtracting tens from a 3-digit number in our heads using our knowledge of multiples of 10. We have started to look at how we can represent numbers using whole-part models and bar models too and how we can use what we know to find missing numbers.
We are very excited to have started our new Mission which is all about Glastonbury. Most of us had never heard of Glastonbury so this is something which is new to us. We have looked at the main pyramid stage and how it has changed over the years and have began to research the charities it supports and the posters through the years too.
Summer 2 2018
Jake really impressed us with his retelling of 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. He read it from memory and used so much expression; especially for the troll!
Cohen work independently to find different ways to make 100 using the tens blocks - well done Cohen!
Oliver, Courtnie, Kara, Jack, Cruz and Alfie works particularly hard in maths when adding and subtracting tens from a 2-digit number.
All of the children are trying super hard with their phonics and are showing off all that they have learnt all year - well done Elm Class!
Summer 1 2018
Joe, Myla and Zachary completed their letters to persuade Meghan and Harry to go to their chosen place on their honeymoon. I think they would struggle to turn them down as they were so persuasive!
Macie and Jack made two amazing crown's for Meghan Markle in Mission Possible this week. Jack then went on to teach others how to make a medal for Prince Harry.
Wow to Abigail, Eliza, Yuki, Isabella, Joe, Samuel and Thea for working so hard to understand how to carry the tens when answering column addition calculations.
Peter explained to the class what glass was made out of and everyone was very impressed!
Alfie and Joseph have really impressed Miss Jarvis with their improved handwriting - practise at home has really helped them to improve!
Jessica has tried very hard to make sure her 'p' are the correct way round this week and I think she has finally cracked it!
