We have been learning more about the layers of the rainforest in our topic and some of the animals that live in each layer.

 

Homework this week is maths.  Children are to complete pages 22 and 23 by Wednesday 18th January.

 

Spellings:
courageous
outrageous
nervous
famous
adventurous

Kind regards

Mrs Scaife

Week Commencing 3rd January 2022

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Although a short week, we have made a good start on our learning of the rainforest.  So far we have learned: what a rainforest is, where they are located in the world and about some of the plants and animals that live there.  We are also starting to learn about deforestation and the disappearing rainforests through our class text The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry.

 

In maths, we have been focusing on commutativity by multiplying 3 separate numbers and the different ways those numbers can be arranged, i.e. 2x3x5, 3x2x5 and why they give the same answer. 

 

In science, we have been learning about states of matter and the characteristics of solids, liquids and gasses.  Why not ask your child if they can recall some fact to you.

 

Homework this week is English.  Pages 25 & 35 are to be completed and returned to school no later than Wednesday 12th January 2022.

 

Spellings:
poisonous
dangerous
mountainous
marvelous
perilous
tremendous
enormous
jealous
precious
disastrous

Kind regards
