Writing

We have been focusing on using compound and complex sentences in our writing. Using different co-ordinating conjunctions in compound sentences and subordinating conjunctions in complex sentences allows us to add clauses and therefore add more detail.

This song has helped to remind us about subordinating conjunctions!

Reading

Video SparkNotes: Mary Shelley's Frankenstein summary

In class, we have begun to read the novel 'Frankenstein' by Mary Shelley. Here is a link to a video that summarises the plot of the famous novel.

Jack Trelawny

On Tuesday 25th September, we were lucky enough to by visited by the author Jack Trelawny. He shared the inspiration and ideas behind his stories, read extracts from his exciting books and answered questions from the children about writing and being an author. Click on the link below to visit his website and find out even more about him!

Spelling Practice

Children are given spelling homework in order to practise key words and spelling patterns. Regular practice of these words at home is highly beneficial. In the documents below you will find the spelling lists for years 3 and 4, as well as those for years 5 and 6, which relate to the national expectations for each year group.

As part of our topic, we have been investigating how electricity was first discovered. This video, which the children have enjoyed, details the scientists who first discovered electricity.

Useful Websites

 

Here are some websites that will really help improve english and maths skills for the upcoming SATS. There are also fun activities for other subjects on these websites that will prove beneficial to the children and deepen understanding of different curriculum areas.
