- As part of science, we'll be doing some experiments that involve plastic bottles - soft drink bottles such as 700ml - 1.5 litre Coke bottles are ideal. I'm sure you could convince your child to take one for the team and drink some Coke this week. Sorry parents, beer and wine bottles aren't needed! If you have any to spare, please send them along to school.
- We've going to be hitting a persuasive writing unit hard from this week onwards. If you are looking for a home learning task, you could get your child to put together a short speech to share at oral language convincing us of something they are passionate about e.g., ban homework, why should everyone own lego, skateboarding should be banned etc.
- The year 4 speech finalists will be heading off to the competition on Monday, the year 5's on Tuesday. Good luck guys, you've worked hard!
- Last week the students continued to beaver away making DLO's about compound sentences, which we've been touching on periodically since last term. If you want a home learning idea that fits in with our writing programme, you could see if your child is able to explain a compound sentence to you. You're hoping to hear things such as: two sentences joined together, conjunction, subject and verb. Here are a some DLO's.
