All pupils have been given an activity to help them remember the different word classes. This is something we have been working on in class. The children have to identify some of the following:
Adjectives (describing words), nouns (the name of an object, emotion, person or place), verbs (action words), adverbs (describes how, when, where, how much or how often an action happens), determiners (e.g. a/an, the), prepositions (e.g. over, under, beside), pronouns (e.g. he, they, I).
Year 3 - There is no homework set so please focus on multiplication tables.
Year 4 - children have been set three tasks on mathletics linked to our work on multiplication and place value.
Handwriting - To practice handwriting neatly by writing
Please remember -
Homework is set on a Friday

Our weekly update from Friday:
What have we been up to?
Another busy week in LKS2! In topic, we have been continuing to find out about the different states in America and have been finding out about some of the human and physical feature of the USA. Improvisation was the theme of music as we all had a go at improvising an 8 beat rhythm - not as easy as it sounds! The children are enjoying their Tag Rugby sessions in PE and are becoming more confident in their understanding of the rules (remembering to pass backwards not forwards!). In Science, we have been learning more about how switches work. Everyone is thoroughly enjoying our focus text 'A Twist of Gold' and we are eagerly looking forward to finding out about the next stage of their journey.
As part of Anti-Bullying week, we have been thinking about respect. We have thought about how we can show respect for ourselves, others, the environment and property and designed posters to show this. We have also talked about the phrase 'All different, all equal' and designed an odd socks to represent ourselves and celebrate what makes us unique.
We are all enjoying our focus text 'A Twist of Gold' by Michael Morpurgo. Our writing will be focusing on Non-chronological reports. We will be looking at the role of time adverbials and conjunctions in our writing.
Year 3 will be working on multiplication and division with a focus on the 3 and 4 times tables. They will be developing their fluency in recalling these multiplication facts and applying this knowledge in problem solving activities.
Year 4 will begin the week by recapping dividing by 10 and 100 before focusing in on the 6 times tables. They will be developing their fluency in recalling these multiplication facts and applying this knowledge in problem solving activities
Remember to continue your reading at home, and keep practising those times tables for our weekly 99 club sessions! If you read 5 times a week (and have your record signed by an adult) you will earn a sticker. The more stickers you have, the more housepoints you can earn!
For extra maths questions
The LKS2 team will continue to fill this page with exciting class news, pictures of things we've done and more as the term continues.
The children have been practising their
handwriting in this way, starting as large
as possible to clearly practice the appropriate
joins between letters.
In the example 'dog' here, you can see that
We hope you have found the overview sheet useful. New spelling lists have been sent home for this week.
