Spellings- Week 3:
Let's start off today, in the same way we do every Tuesday morning, with our spelling lessons. The Year 5 and Year 6 lesson and resources are below, and I've placed a link to the Spelling Bees in case you've forgotten where they are. You will notice that I have added a suggestion for learning spellings on the spellings page, which works really well for pupils who find learning spellings difficult.
Remember that you should choose activities from the 'spelling strategies' sheet to help you learn your spellings and that 'learning spellings' is not just doing these supporting activities. Take time each day to practise the words, with an aim to get full marks in your test and then remember them forever.

Maths - Year 5
LO: To find the area by counting squares
Today, the Year 5 are learning about area. Area is how much space a shape 'takes up'. Some areas are easier to work out because the shape can easily be split into squares.
Maths Year 6

Today the Year 6 will be learning about perimeter of rectilinear shapes. A rectilinear shape is just a shape that is made of rectangles and squares pushed together.

I have put a link below, which takes you to the page on the website where the Accelerated Reader login page is saved. Please use time this week to complete quizzes for books you have read this year and at the end of the week I will have a look and see who has had a go!
