Skylarks WB 20.06.22

Date: 19th Jun 2022 @ 3:49pm

Hello everyone and welcome back to Skylarks weekly blog 😊

Skylarks have had another super week and have been busy rehearsing for both Northwich Sings and our KS2 Production.

 

Next week (W.B. 20.06.22)

Reminders:

Please send party-wear costumes into school ASAP for the KS2 production.

Tuesday 21st June: Y5 will be taking part in Northwich Sings. They should come to school in their blue jeans, coloured tshirt and sensible footwear and should bring extra snacks and a packed tea in a named, disposable bag – No school bags or lunch boxes please. Parents are invited to arrive at 6.10pm to watch the performance.

 

On Monday, the children in Years 5 and 6 will receive first aid training where they will be taught how to make a 999 call and how to deal with various medical emergencies.

In English this week, we will be editing and publishing our persuasive information texts on landfill. The children have worked so hard on their first drafts and I can’t wait to read their final pieces of published writing.

In maths this week, we will be focussing on converting between decimals and fractions. We will also consolidate our understanding of the four operations through daily 4-A-Day activities.

In art we will continue to develop our drawing skills by learning how to draw realistic human faces in proportion and with different expressions.

In PE, we will continue to learn our dance for the KS2 production.

Our PE day this term is on Friday so your child should come to school in their PE kit on this day. Please remember PE kits should either be school kits or plain black/blue.

 

Homework

In year 5 the children will be set a weekly maths homework that they should complete and mark at home using the answers in the back of the homework book.

If your child is finding the homework tricky, I will ensure that supervision is provided on a Thursday lunchtime for your child to ask any questions or receive some support to complete their homework.

The children should complete the worksheet on fractions/word problems this week to be returned by Friday 24th June.

 

Please also encourage your child to read for 20 minutes each evening and practice their spellings/times tables. The following websites are both great for times tables practice:

Our spellings for the quiz on Thursday 23rd June will continue focus on words ending in the suffix ‘-cious’:

Vicious, atrocious, ferocious, audacious, precious, auspicious, vivacious, unconscious

Please encourage your child to look any unknown words up in the dictionary or online as this will help them to use and apply these words in their writing.

 

Please remember that if you have any questions or queries, do not hesitate to get in contact 😊
