Well done to Elm class, the winners of last week’s TT Rockstars battle! As we enjoyed the battle between the classes last week, we have decided to have another battle this week. Again, there will be a reward for the winning class so get logged on and battle hard! Which class will win this week? Come on Pine class!!!

 

For English/Topic, we would like you to write some instructions for mummification. What would you need to mummify a body? What are the different stages of the process? There is a sheet provided if you would like to use it.

As we have been learning our times tables this week the focus of this week’s homework relates to this.  Please continue to practice your times tables as much as possible at home, it is really important to know them and in out of order.  We should be learning our 2, 5, 10, 3 and 4 times tables.

 

To motivate you, as well as the videos attached we have organised a TT RockStars Battle between Elm Class and Pine Class!!!  There will be a class reward for the winning class so get logged on and battle hard.

 

For Topic this week we are challenging you to write something in hieroglyphics!  This could be your name, a sentence about you or anything you like!  There is space to draw a picture and write about it on the sheet attached.

Good luck everyone!

This week’s homework is split into Maths and Topic. 

For Maths, you will be able to show your addition and subtraction skills that we have been working on in class for the past two weeks, ask an adult to write out some sums for you and have a go at working them out. 

For the Topic, I would like you to tell me what you remember from our hook week for the Egyptians, what was your favourite bit? What are you excited to learn more about?

Spelling will be sent home for you to practice, the highlighted words are words that you can spell. Please practise spelling the words that are not highlighted. You do not need to bring the sheet back into school. After half term you will have the opportunity to spell the words that you have been practising.

Topic Hook - The Ancient Egyptians

 

Today we started our new topic ‘What happened to the Boy King?’ This morning, the children were able to go into the hall and explore a range items to hook them into the topic. On one table there were globes for the children to locate Egypt and non fiction books to discover facts. On a second table there were examples of Egyptian clothing and on a third table there were some Egyptian artefacts and examples of hieroglyphics as well as our own canopic jars containing organs 🤢 as were used to store some of the organs from bodies after mummification. The children seemed to thoroughly enjoy this experience and we look forward to learning more about the items we saw in the coming weeks.

Take a look at some of our pictures:

Homework Week 2

 

This week’s homework is split into Maths and Topic.  For Maths, the children will be trying to find numbers that are one more/one less or ten more/ten less than a given number.  There are different sheets to challenge the children.  For the Topic, the children will be researching about the Egyptians!  I’ve attached a few different chapters to get stuck into.  You can read them all, a couple or any that you think look interesting! 

Please ensure that your homework is completed and sent to the class email address before the next one is set (every Friday).  If you any questions regarding the homework you may also use the class email address to ask them.

Good luck everyone!

Homework Week 1

 

This week’s homework is split into English and Maths and links to the learning that we have completed in class this week.  For Maths, the children will be comparing numbers, identifying the largest and smallest using the correct symbol.  There are two sheets, the second is more challenging.  For English the homework will be based on the book we are focusing on in class which is The Twits.  The homework is for the children to write their own trick that Mr or Mrs Twit might play on the other (be creative!). 

Please ensure that your homework is completed and sent to the class email address before the next one is set (every Friday).  If you any questions regarding the homework you may also use the class email address to ask them.

First week back

Just a quick message to let you all know what a fantastic first week we’ve had back in school.

The children have settled very well into juniors and with the new routines in place. In lessons, we have concentrated on supporting their emotional wellbeing and the children have created their own worry boxes. This week so far, we have looked at what is different since our return to school, what is the same, what we will miss about being at home so much and how we feel about being back at school. See the picture below for some of our comments.

Thank-you for all of your support with pick ups and drop offs and ensuring that the children are only bringing what they need to school.

Mrs Munro

Homework, Reading, TT Rockstars and New Class Email

 

As of next Friday we will begin to set homework again for the children.  However, instead of this being completed in learning logs, we will be continuing with our online homework for the time being.  There is a new class email address which I will add to the bottom of this post which you can send any completed work to.  Homework can be completed anytime between the Friday it was set and the following Friday (before new homework is set).

Also, TT Rockstars is up and running with the same username and passwords as last year.  Please practice the set times tables with your child :)

Reading books will be sent home on a Monday to be returned on a Friday. Please email the class email address when your child has read at least 3 times and finished their book so we know to change their book as their green planners will not be sent home.

 

If you have any questions about the homework please feel free to email me through the class email address and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

 

New Class Email Address:  pine@newmoston.manchester.sch.uk
