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.

Maths

In maths we have been converting between metric units of measure and have begun to solve problems involving measurement. Attached below are measurement problems for you to solve as well as visual reminders about how to convert between different units of measure.

 

 

English  

Reading - Read 'How the Camel Got His Hump' (attached pdf).

Make a mind map of any vocabulary that you do not know. Some you will be able to find out by using a dictionary or researching on the internet. Others are made up words so you need to use clues in the text to work out what they might mean. We will re -read this together in class.

 

Writing -

We will soon write our own short stories based on 'The Just So Stories' by Rudyard Kipling. Use the planning sheets attached below to develop your ideas for your own story.

Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver

This half term we have been reading Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver. Below is a link to podcasts featuring Sir Ian McKellen reading chapters of the story. Enjoy!
