Silly Sentences with 3S

We have finished writing our stories of Jack and the Beanstalk. For the rest of this week, we will focus on understanding how a sentence is constructed and the different word types that are needed in order for a sentence to make sense. Today, we worked on some super silly but grammatically correct sentences by using a method called colourful semantics.

The method is simple and also easy to practise at home. All you need is a Who (orange), What (yellow), Where (blue) and When (brown). Then, you order the pictures so that the sentence makes sense grammatically. This is a great speaking and listening activity you can play at home with your family over the half term. Some examples of sentences that the children made today were:

Here are some examples of cards we used in class but why not have a go at making your own cards at home over half term?

6F Black History Month – The Undefeated

6F have been lucky enough to win a fantastic prize!

As a part of the ‘Let’s Celebrate Black Lives’ project from The Children’s Bookshow, we have been selected to receive 30 copies of an amazing book called The Undefeated by Kwame Alexander and Kadir Nelson.

Each child in the class will get their own copy of the book to take home and keep for ever! We have received one copy already and the others will be here soon!

We are over the moon to be chosen and and we cannot wait to start reading and studying this fantastic book!

(As there are only 24 children in the class and we have been given 30 books, we would like to donate the remaining books to 6L, 5A, 5D and 5G so that they can read it too!)

Year 1 Home Learning

This week, you have been given your ‘TimesTables Rockstars’ login (all your logins will be found at the front of your reading record)! You can practise your times tables at home. We are practising our 2 times tables in Year 1.

Log in at home and become a rockstar!

Parents- Please continue to practise with your child as much as possible. Just 5 minutes a day will make a big difference!

Also, don’t forget that you have access to My Maths too. We have set some Maths learning on here for the half term break.

Well done to the children reading books on Bugclub! Keep reading and have a lovely half term break.

Year 2 Home Learning – 22.10.20

Hello Year 2, 

Firstly, we’d like to say WELL DONE for all of your hard work this half term! 

Your Home Learning for this week is all about poetry! What do you know about poetry? Do you have a favourite poem? Who is your favourite poet? Read any poems that you already have at home or click the link to read/listen to some poems.

Draw a picture to illustrate a poem of your choice and write a sentence explaining what you enjoy about it. 

CHALLENGE: Write your own poem and bring it in to share with the class (remember, not all poems have to rhyme). 


Have a lovely half term!

Miss Butler and Miss Towsend 🙂 

Year 6 – Home Learning for Half Term

Hello Year 6!

We hope you have a really restful half term holiday – you have worked very hard over these past few weeks.

We would like you to log-in to MyMaths (please check the letter that was sent home for the log-in details).

We have set you some homework on shape. Once you have done this, there are games to play and practice as well. Have fun!

We would also like you to learn and practise these spellings.

What do you notice about these words?

Can you make up a rule?

You could create a game or quiz your parents!
