what we will be learning in class this week:
Week Commencing Monday 16th April 2018
Making New Materials
To use inference to ask and answer questions on a text.
To compare texts of a similar type.
To identify and use phrases and clauses.
Year 5 are looking at words ending in shus spelt –cious. For example, precious, ferocious and vicious. The -ci makes the sh sound and the -ous sounds like us. -cious = shus
The word ‘spacious’ is an adjective because it describes somewhere as ‘big’ or ‘having a lot of space’. The noun is the word ‘space’, which can be a place with nothing in it. If a noun ends in -ce, we usually use the ending -cious for the adjective. We can add suffixes to some of our words, too. Let’s do some word building with these and other words ending with -cious, shus.
To round, order and compare decimals.
To find equivalent decimals, fractions and percentages.
To plan a fair test.
To record findings accurately.
Logging into to the program at home;
Each term, before the children embark on their learning in a new topic, we send home a Parent Topic Planner explaining for parents and carers the learning opportunities across the curriculum that each child will receive. Teachers select and suggest useful websites and places to visit which will enhance and prepare the child for the topic they are about to start. There are also useful dates and a bank of topic words that families may choose to talk through with their children.
