Snowdon Class 

Hello Snowdon Class!

I hope you all had a lovely half term!

What did you get up to? Did you get outside and enjoy the sunshine or create/try something new indoors?

I would love to see some pictures so please keep sending them in!

 

Reminder:

After working on counting in 2s and 5s, I know lots of you have started working on times tables. Here are some links to different activities and apps that might help you practise:

Weekly Spellings

Every week I will put up 5 red words for you to practise. Remember, you can’t use your sounds for these words. The best way to learn them is to practise writing them out or by saying them out loud. Then test yourself and try to use them in a sentence.

This week your red words are:

one

two

four

eight

were

Can you spot them in a book or around your home?

Maths

Topic

Our topic this term is 'Light Up The World'. 

Please find attached the WhISK sheet for this topic. 

 

Topic Vocabulary

Every week I will add new words for you to learn. These words are really important for our topic. 

Now that we have learnt all the vocabulary for this topic, your final job is to revise (go over and make sure you can remember) all the words we have learnt.

Can you put them in a sentence?

 

Topic Challenge

Your final topic challenge for 'Light Up the World' is to use the whisk sheet to make your own dictionary. 

First, make a book using paper.

Here is how to make a fold up book:

Next, fill your book with all the new vocabulary we have learnt (you can find it all on the whisk sheet) along with the definitions and a picture to go with it.

To finish it off, why don't you create a beautiful front cover for your dictionary. Have a look at the whisk sheet and think about the different topic challenges we have done this term to help you decorate it!
