Our weekly update from Friday:
What have we been up to?
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 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.
Times Table Support
Want help learning your times tables? Then this is the game for you!
A card game for 2 or more players
The aim of the game is to get rid of all your cards by practising multiplication.
You will need:
A pack of cards
How to play:
1. Deal all the cards between the players. The cards are kept in piles face down. Kings and Queens = 12, Jacks = 11 and aces = 1.
2. Player 1 turns over their top card and places it in the middle of the table. Player 2 turns over their top card and has to multiply the numbers on the 2 cards. If the correct answer is given then the next player turns over their top card and multiplies cards 2 and 3. Play continues around the circle with players taking turns to multiply the last 2 cards played.
3. If a wrong answer is given the group shout "All yours!" and the player has to pick up all the cards in the centre pile.
4.The winner is the first person to get rid of all their cards.
