Message from Mrs Kingston We have noticed increasing levels of playground chat about the game Fortnite— Battle Royale which is a PEGI 12+ gun battle game which requires players to work as a team. The main risks to children are interacting with strangers and also making costly in-app purchases. If your child is talking about Fortnite, please follow this link to find out more about it. https:// www.internetmatters.org/hub/guidance/ fortnite-battle-royal-parents-guide-keepkids-safe-gaming/

Dear parents,

In Maths this term we have learnt about division, statistics, 2d and 3d shapes and we have just started fractions.

 

In English this term, we have done lots of cross- curricular writing with our topic of time travellers, like biographies on Isambard Kingdom Brunel, writing a diary entry about their day in space and non-chronological reports on Concorde. Activity ideas: Research Tim Peake and write a biography on him. Write about a place that they'd like to travel to and why. Research Amelia Earhart and explain why she was a pioneer. 

 

In Grammar, these are the things that they should know: Noun, Verb, Adjective, apostrophe, comma, adverb, past and present tense and expanded noun phrase.

 

I hope these activity ideas/websites help. Many of the items in the blocks below require a printer, if you don't have access to one, you could show the child the worksheet on the screen and encourage them to write the answer on a piece of paper, or simply say the answer out loud. 

 

Best wishes, 

 

Miss Jenkins
