Home Learning - Maths / English Home Learning is set on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We expect the children to be reading every day. In addition, the children are learning new spellings each week - see the separate document.
English - This term, we will be reading Goodnight Mister Tom’ by Michelle Magorian, set during World War Two. We will use it to produce a range of writing genres including: diary entries, formal letters, newspaper articles and short narratives. We will also use this text to develop key comprehension skills such as word meaning and inference and use these skills to influence our writing.
We will continue to revise grammar and punctuation aspects such as determiners, tenses and apostrophes.
Maths -In Maths, we will will revise how to find the perimeter, area and volume of simple and compound shapes and will then move onto learning the formula for finding the area of triangles and parallelograms. We will introduce algebra and will begin to find pairs of numbers that satisfy number sentences involving two ‘unknowns’. We will also revise all aspects of Maths taught this year and develop our reasoning and problem solving skills.
