In English this week, we are going back to the basics which means a SPAG focus. We start our week by completing our unit on persuasive writing with an edit and improve lesson. After we move on to focusing a day each on the following, capital letters and full stops, commas and finally apostrophes.
In maths, we will similar to English, be focused on the basics needed to return to school. This means completing a day on addition and subtraction, inverse operations, mental strategies and finally multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000.
In reading comprehension this week our focus is on a mixture of different comprehension skills. We will focus on a text from our world book day author: Michael Murpurgo. Our focus is on the book Listen to the moon. Our lesson will involve skills including retrieval and inference skills.
Wider Curriculum – This week there is no specific one focus for our afternoon lessons. Instead we will be completing a variety of different activities based on our return to school. This will start of a recap and reminders of key rules and expectations, as well as in depth study and focus on hygiene and staying safe when back at school. Furthermore, we will also complete some reviews and recaps of the wider curriculum learning we have completed this year. Finally, Friday is World Maths Day and we will be learning about what a census is. We will then use some census data to create line graphs and answer comparison, sum and difference questions.
Please continue to practice your spellings and read at home as often as possible. There are also 3 handwriting sheets, which practice our spellings list. Remember, try to complete a PE activity on Monday afternoon, as well as some daily exercise, taken from the Active Fusion sheets. There is also resources for a Jigsaw lesson (about emergency procedures) for Wednesday afternoon.
We hope you have a great week.
Love, the Year 5 team
