Weekly Learning Review

Weekly Learning Review

Class:                                             Week Ending:
Literacy
Spelling this week were words ending in ‘im’, ‘ir’, ‘il’, ‘pro’ and ‘in’. We again spent a lot of time clarifying the meaning of our words and using them correctly in sentences. Part of the weekly spelling test will include constructing sentences using the words. It is essential that as well as learning how to spell the words students know what they mean and can use the words correctly.
For comprehension, we studied an extract from national geographic about climbing Mount Everest. Students answered questions of varying levels of difficulty. We focussed on using spellings with accuracy and consistent use of punctuation.
In grammar, we refreshed our knowledge of verbs; revising the use of regular and irregular verbs.
This week we have started to look at ‘The Witches’ by Roald Dahl. The book was introduced on Thursday with some fun drama based activities.
Mathematics
In Maths, we spent the first part of the week looking at odd and even numbers. We then spent time revising perimeter; the 24 hour clock and multiplication and division problems. This should help students with some of the weekly mental maths questions. We had a fun lesson investigating lines around the school; identifying examples of vertical, parallel and horizontal lines inside the building and in the playground.
Science
We are continuing our work on States of Matter. This week, we continued our work on the water cycle making sure diagrams and key words are completed.
Humanities
This week we  finished  our work on oceans and seas. We studied the example of The North Sea, and watched a video clip to show us how important the sea is. In terms of resources such as fish and oil.
Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship Education
