Hasper Class Newsletter Friday 7th October 2016
Dear Parents and Carers,
Notices – Check the theme for your child’s birthday month so they are suited and booted for the calendar shoot on Thursday 20th October.
English – This week we shared the poetry the children had prepared for homework and looked at some of the ways poets use devices such as rhythm, rhyme and repetition to entertain the reader. We also wrote unusual recipes making sure we used adjectives, adverbs and bossy verbs to describe the process!
Maths – This week we looked at number patterns to help us remember the 6 and 9 times tables, factors and inverse operations.
Next week we focus on fractions.
Science – This week we had a practical session mixing up foodstuffs and passing the mixture through tights to mimic the digestive system. Not one for the squeamish, but most class members enjoyed the mess.
Topic – This week we explored the derivation of place names ending in -by, -ham etc to see if they were Anglo-Saxon, Viking or Roman.
