Listen carefully to the input in the video. Today you will be writing your own newspaper report. Use the worksheet that you looked at in lesson 3 as a WAGOLL to help you with your structure. When you have finished, edit your writing carefully. Teachers would love you to ask parents send these to year group emails. Please do not upload any of your work online to any social media sites.

Mrs Wordsmith home learning

 

 

We are starting a new Mrs Wordsmith unit and there are now lesson videos on our YouTube channel! Use this link: L3 Stressed and scared words You can work on the sheet below or just write your answers in your exercise book.

Grammar home learning

To help you master some important key skills, we are putting lesson videos on our YouTube channel. The link to this week's lesson on pronouns is here: L3 Relative Clauses You will just need some paper and a pen/pencil.

Spellings home learning

Below is a document with this week's spelling rules. You could do a pre-test at the start of the week and then see how much progress you can make by Friday, just like we do at school. You will probably be able to come up with some really creative ways to practise at home. Perhaps you could compete against a sibling or an adult! Remember that all of the common exception words can also be found in the centre pages of your reading diary.

Maths home learning

We are now using some fantastic resources from the White Rose Maths Hub for our home learning. We have chosen these because they really closely match the way we teach maths at St Peter's.

  • Each lesson has a short video to watch with clear modelling and explanations.
  • We appreciate that printing can be a challenge, so you can just write the answers in your exercise book.
  • Questions with a thought bubble next to them are like our 'star challenges' so they may be more challenging.
  • The answers are included for you to check once you've completed the task or if you are getting stuck.

We will carry on posting a different challenge from Nrich each week and you can also go to https://nrich.maths.org/14600 if you want even more maths!

 

From the week beginning 4th May onwards, we are going to be working in line with the White Rose terms dates. This is because White Rose have linked up with BBC Bitesize so there will be more games and activities offered each day which match the main lesson.

To access the learning, you need to:

 

 

 

Times Tables Rockstars

TTRS can be accessed on any computer/laptop and via the free app on tablets and phones. If your child has problems logging in, please contact us via the year group email.

 

We would like all children in Years 3-6 to play on 'Garage' for 3 minutes per day.

Other fantastic options are:

  • Festival (they play against ‘the world’)
  • Arena (playing against others in their class so this will only work if they organise to be online at the same time between themselves)
  • RockSlam (they directly challenge someone else within their year group – only using Rock Names)

 

Battle update

To begin with, it was a really close battle between Year 5 and Year 6 last week but sadly Year 6 were beaten by an amazing Year 5 team. We've set up the same battle for this week so let's see if you can get some revenge!

It starts at 8:30am on Monday 27th and finishes at 3:00pm on Friday 1st May.

 

Reading home learning

We always encourage all children to read at home and we know many of you have many lovely books to read. In order for your child to continue being able to read book banded reading books selected at their level of reading ability, your child now has an account with Bug Club where they have been allocated reading books based on their book band. They have 2 books to read in ‘My Stuff’ and then after completing all of the activities based on the books, they will receive 2 more books. Books read and completed will then go into ‘My Library’ to read. Please use our pupil guide below to help you navigate Bug Club.

 

We would expect your child to complete 2 books each week and there is a limited number of books within each book band to complete.

We recommend that the first reading will focus on decoding, the second reading will focus on comprehension and completing the activities and the third reading will focus on prosody (intonation, pitch and expression).
