This week in Yorkshire 5 

Week beginning Monday 19th February

I hope you all had a lovely half term week.  

We started a new book this week - Floodland by Marcus Sedgewick.  It's already instigated some heated discussions among the children about global warming and climate change.  We have started by writing a character description about the main character Zoe and describing the setting, thinking about senses and figurative language.

In maths we have started to look at decimal places including tenths, hundredths and thousandths, with children showing their understanding by partitioning in a variety of ways.

In Geography, we have continued to look at farming and how different climates affect what can grow in different areas of the world. It sparked a very nice discussion about where the best strawberries come from!

 

 

 

Home Learning

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

Times Tables Rockstars! 

To keep practising the multiplication taught in class, and challenging yourself to keep the ones you already know fresh, don’t forget to log into your Times Tables Rockstars account. 

https://play.ttrockstars.com/

 

Rapid recall of multiplication is essential for success in maths and Times Tables Rockstars gives children self-confidence, recognition and motivation to improve.  Challenge yourself to beat your score, build your knowledge and watch your confidence sore, as you become a Rockstar!

Please ask your class teacher if you need replacement log in details.

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.
