Homework

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 English we created our own teaching videos inspired by Ollie and Geraldine the Giraffe! We learnt about suffixes (and some prefixes) and made sock puppets to use in our videos. There are some examples of our work below!

In Maths we have moved onto recapping division and looking at how we need to share equally when dividing. Some children began to look at how we can work out division calculations where we need to share amounts by 2, 5 or 10 by counting in 2s, 5s or 10s!

Our Mission Project is underway and we are working together as a class to make a model of Glastonbury festival. The children are working in teams and have a focus for the project. One team is making the tents, another is creating the Pyramid Stage, a team is creating sleeping bags and pillows for the campers, one team is creating tie-dye flags for the fields and the last team is making the base of Glastonbury...we can't wait for you to see all of our hard work when we have completed it!

Wow moments!

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!
