What we learnt about this week
This week in English, we have been looking at our new book, Diary of a Killer Cat and predicting what will happen in the story. We also read it and answered comprehension questions.
In Maths, we have explored our new topic, ‘Money’. We looked at British money and how it is similar to Malaysian money. We will also acted through role play to set up a shop to buy things.
In Science, we will be spending time closing the gap as well as practising for the school production.
In I.C.T, we have been selecting and recreating suitable pixel arts from the internet and then pasting it into Microsoft Excel.
What we plan for next week
Next week in English, we will be focusing on our handwriting, spellings and Phonics skills.
Next week in Maths, we will be looking at another new topic, ‘Time’. We will focus on the months of the year and telling the time to o’clock and half past.
Next week in Science, we will be starting our new topic ‘Electricity’ and exploring different types of electricity by identifying whether it is used by the mains or by using batteries.
Next week in I.C.T, we will be showing our peers how to copy and paste pixel art into Microsoft Excel. We will also be practising giving positive feedback from the demonstrations.
Homework will be given out on Thursday and we ask that homework be handed in on Tuesday. This week’s homework consists of handwriting practice, one side of Maths, one side of English. As well as this, we ask that your child is reading the Oxford Reading Tree book as well as any other reading materials daily.
Your child’s Edmodo username and password is in their school planner if you and your child would like to access Edmodo to revisit educational games and activities.
