Our week in Gloucestershire 3

This week in Gloucestershire we have been looking further at our text 'Ug, Boy Genius of the Stone Age'   and have been building on our knowledge of coordinating and subordinating conjunctions. The children have been learning how to use conjunctions to join two sentences of a similar theme and to join clauses. The children are now working on using their knowledge of conjunctions to compare Ug's life in the Stone Age to our lives in the present day. 

 

In History, we have begun to develop our knowledge of the Bronze Age and have explored how the discovery of bronze changed the way people lived, farmed, fought, traded and dressed. The children made fantastic comparisons to these areas of life in the Stone Age and were astounded by the way life had progressed between these two periods of time. 

 

In PE, we have been improving our skills in hockey and creating dance sequences. Children have been using their science knowledge to further learn about the muscle groups they need to move in these lessons. 

 

We are also working hard on our nativity - please can children who have lines, ensure they practise these as much as possible so that they know them without needing their script :)

Click here for more information about how our school uses Boom Reader. 

 

Children should bring their Accelerated Reader reading book and bookmark to and from school and home each day. Pupils are asked to change their book when it is finished using the guidance and support provided by the teaching team in class. 

Maths fluency

Your children have been told whether they are practising the 2, 5 and 10 times tables or the 3 times tables. We will be checking the children's knowledge of their timestables on either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.

 

Practise your timestables using the link below or make some times table cards at home.

Home Learning folders containing the Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling task will come home each Thursday and need to be returned the following Tuesday.

 

Before having a go at the homework sheet, watch the following video to remind you of adverbs.
