Dear parents and carers,
Notices: As part of World Book day next week, Krasner class will be visiting Hornsey library on Monday 26th February at 1:30-2:15. We will need 3 parent volunteers, if you wish to join us please let me know or get your child to pass on the message to me. When we return, I will offer children the opportunity to make costumes/masks etc. if they wish. Our class theme will be Percy Jackson and the dressing up day is Thursday 1st March.
The class have continued with our topic of persuasive writing. Each group received a ‘mystery box’ with an item they would need to sell. Pupils worked collaboratively to devise a play script of an advert, which they would later perform. Pupils needed to ensure that they included a vast range of persuasive devices such as rhetorical questions, alliteration, persuasive openers, statistics and celebrity endorsements. The class completed wonderful and imaginative adverts, which they performed for their peers.
Reading: Children are continuing to read for at least 15 minutes in class every day. This is having a positive impact on children’s attitudes towards reading as well as the vocabulary they are now using in lessons.
We are re-capping on fractions, decimals and percentages. Particularly, the class have looked at equivalence and visual representations of different equivalent fractions. We moved on to add and subtract fractions with different denominators and solve problems involving fractions, decimals and percentages, including mixed fractions and improper fractions.
Pupils have completed 3d representations of habitats. They were very creative designs which pupils made from recycled materials. Children used what they learned about animals and their habitats to create the models.
Spelling: Spelling sheet
Maths: Fractions activities, pupils have 2 sets of activities ranging in difficulty. They can choose the level of difficulty.
English: Pupils will add punctuation including speech marks to a piece of writing and then write their own paragraph with speech.
Have a lovely weekend!
