This week in Yorkshire 5 

Week beginning Monday 10th June

It was great to have some dads join us in class this week after their Father's Day breakfast. The children learnt about Dual Coding and had to answer some questions with and without visual aids to help them. The children went on to design their own mind maps about the Ancient Greeks, using words, colours and pictures to help organise their knowledge.

In English we have moved onto chapter 2 and are understanding the emotions the characters are feeling and the reasons behind some of these emotions.  To write about emotions, rather than just what happened is a difficult skill and makes us think about author's voice.

In maths we are continuing our unit about decimals for another week before moving on to a new unit next week.  We have been showing our knowledge and understanding in our tests this week.

In science, we have been looking at the solubility of different materials, conducting a fair test to see whether or not they dissolve in water.

In our Discovery Centre session this week we were fortunate enough to make use of the VR headsets and looked around some areas of ancient Greece.

We are getting ready for sports day in PE by practicing the relay race and building our stamina for running the long race as well as the sprint.  

Home Learning

Home learning and spellings will be set each week on a Thursday and will be due in the following Tuesday.

Reading

All children have been given a new AR bookmark and know their AR bands.  They have selected a book to read at home and school.  Please ensure you hear your child read regularly and record on Boom Reader.  I have log in reminders for the children to bring home.

 

Please note: pupil login details have changed slightly due to an upgrade that has taken place on the Accelerated Reader platform. Pupil login details (user name and password) should now be enter in all lower case (no capital letters at all). These login details are used each time your child quizzes a school reading book which carries an accelerated reading quiz code.

 

Music Knowledge Organiser

Below is the music knowledge organiser for this term's music topic. To help with their in-class learning, please can the children read over this each week.
