Read every night to an adult and discuss your book with them using the comprehension skills poster to aid your discussion. Reading records should be brought to school every day and will be checked every Friday.
Your homework book has details of a number of reading activities. You should complete two of these each week and they should be based on your current reading book.
Maths homework is set on the Mathletics website. The tasks selected are carefully chosen to consolidate the weeks learning. Your reading record contains your login details.
Revise your times tables and related division facts as regularly as possible. Practise them in the following order: 2, 5, 10, 3, 4, 8.
10 spellings are given out each week. These are in your homework book. You should complete the assigned activity and practise them every day. Spelling tests are on Wednesdays.
Homework is set every Wednesday and should be returned to school on Monday morning.
Look out for the half termly homework projects too and enjoy being creative with them.
WORKING FROM HOME
Through our theme lessons we will learn about different aspects of life in Ancient Egypt. We will develop a greater understanding of historical timelines, consider sources of information and their reliability and develop our historical and critical questioning. We will also use these lessons to develop our Art and D&T skills.
This term we will study forces and magnets. In our lessons we will compare how things move on different surfaces. We will observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others. We will also compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials. We will use these lessons to continue to develop our investigative and enquiry skills.
We are currently enjoying reading The BFG by Roald Dahl. We have enjoyed writing for a variety of purposes whilst developing our SPaG skills. We have been developing our understanding of figurative language (particularly metaphors and similes), direct speech, conjunctions, fronted adverbials and tenses. We have created some pretty scary giants and have written in role as Sophie.
In these lessons, we have been reading The BFG. We have enjoyed using our understanding of language to define the giant language that we have come across as well as new words. We have also been using our inference skills to understand how the characters are feeling as well as retrieving key information from the text.
This term we will be exploring the question, who is the most significant person in the Easter narrative and why? We will be thinking about Jesus’ relationship with Peter, Judas and Mary Magdalene. We will consider not only the significance of the characters to the story but also Jesus’ friendships with them and how we can be a loyal disciple of Jesus.

We will continue to develop our mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills in our lessons.
Remember, you can practise your mathematical skills at any time on Mathletics as well as using it to complete their maths homework.
At the moment we are focusing on length and mass, however, we will continue to practise our other maths skills.
