LITERACY

In Literacy this week, the children will be writing four paragraphs using their research from the last week. As part of this we will have a focus on teaching the children key skills to up level their work, including the use of various openers, adverbs, connectives (but, because) and a range of punctuation.

MATHS

This week we will be focusing on multiplication. This will include using the short multiplication method for multiplying 2 digit numbers by a single digit (21 x 3) and a focus on the mental recall of multiplication facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.

THEMED LEARNING

This week, the children will be continuing their art focus. They will be designing and making negative stencils and collographs of dinosaur footprints, plants from the Mesozoic times and fossils. These will be used to create prints and rubbings using paint and wax. The final piece of artwork will be used as a background paper to present their dinosaur non-chronological report.

PSHCE

As part of our art focus, the children will be continuing to consider what they have done well and how they could further improve their skills, particularly in writing. This is part of our work on helping the children to set their own targets.

Koken, bakken, braden... Kun jij het spreekwoord raden?

Het nieuwe thema van KS2 staat in het teken van koken en alles wat daarmee te maken heeft (recepten, spijsvertering, het restaurant, ingrediënten, etc.) en de daaraan gekoppelde beeldspraak. We hebben de spreekwoorden van de vorige  weken herhaald.

Cito-toetsen

De Citotoetsen zijn begonnen. Het onderdeel begrijpend lezen hebben we als eerste gedaan. Komende week komen de onderdelen, technisch lezen, spelling en woordenschat aan bod. Oefen met de woordkaartjes van ‘Spelling Laat Zien’ (toegestuurd in de laatste nieuwsbrief) nog een keer de categorieën.

In verband met de Cito-toetsen is er deze week geen huiswerk. De leerlingen mogen natuurlijk wel de (woordenschat)oefeningen van Nieuwsbegrip doen, de spellingkaartjes van ‘Laat Zien’ en de Staal-app.
