Kangaroos and Wallabies
Teachers: Miss S Rapsey & Miss R Horler
This term we are starting our new topic of the Vikings. Alongside this, we are investigating materials in Science. Then during the second half of the term, we will be investigating 'Shoes' during our whole school topic!
During the last few weeks we have been looking at 'The Watertower' by Gary Crew. We have been inspired by the mysterious story and will be looking at creating our own versions of the story. Our focus skills include using commas, dashes and brackets for parenthesis (extra information), using semicolons instead of conjunctions and using adverbials for cohesion. In Guided Reading we are continuing to develop our comprehension skills!
We have also been learning key skills such as spelling words with silent letters and understanding homophones.
Here are some links to help you at home:
Note about homework:
We send weekly spellings and times tables home by Wednesday. These, along with reading records, should be returned on a Monday.
