Homework

Hello,

I am just writing to let everyone know, I will not be handing out any weekly spellings homework until after Christmas.

If you could continue to work on the common exception words with your children (these were sent home in bookbags a few weeks ago – highlighted green for the words they still need to learn). I will be doing another test with the children on these words after Christmas and will send home another highlighted sheet to see how they have progressed.

I hope everyone enjoys the build up to Christmas and I look forward to seeing you all at the Nativity performances!

Science – Brilliant Builders

Hello all,

We had a wonderful day yesterday taking part in an investigatory walk around our school grounds to discuss and compare what materials the buildings, benches, etc, are made of. We then continued this discussion in the classroom as a class. Following this, in the afternoon the children took part in a class investigation.

We came up with the hypothesis “Hard materials cannot absorb water” – we wanted to investigate whether our hypothesis was true or false. After investigating a range of materials, we agreed on the statement “Most hard materials are not absorbent, but we found when testing wood, it absorbed a small amount of the water poured onto it.”

Here are some photographs of our day:

The letter stated that I would highlight the words they are getting correct in pink, however being me, I went the opposite way and have highlighted the words they have not yet achieved in green, so everything not highlighted they are able to spell!
