Hope you have had a nice half ter. Here we have your work for this week if you are at home.
For this week’s reading block we will be looking at an extract from the book, The Demon Headmaster by Gillian Cross. At the start of the week, you will be looking at the vocabulary used in the book, text marking the extract and evaluating your reading fluency. Towards the end of the week, you will be completing some retrieval and predication activities.
In English, we begin our Christmas writing module, with inspiration coming from our new book “The Girl Who Saved Christmas”. We will begin by looking at our audience and purpose for writing this week. After, we will build towards a descriptive write about a key point in the story – when Trolls attack Santa!
In maths, we will start with completing our learning about line graphs. We will then move onto reading and interpreting tables before finishing off the week with some problem solving activities.
In Science this week, our focus is the Earth and our Solar System. This will mean having a detailed look at the planets in our Solar System, along with their movement. We will then study the importance of the Moon to life on earth.
We hope you have all had a wonderful half term!
Love, the Year 5 team
