Summer Term 2021
Squirrel Class Homework
We have been practising telling the time in 5 minute intervals. Solve the challenge on the sheets in your homework book by putting the clocks into order. Discuss your thinking with an adult as you solve the problem. NB there can be more than one correct answer!
The children have also enjoyed playing this game in class and may wish to play it at home too https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/116/telling-the-time (scroll down to the picture and click on ‘play game’. Choose the appropriate level and make sure that you choose 12-hour clock on the menu).
We have been learning about the Olympic games that will be taking place in Tokyo this summer. Unfortunately, this year Team GB and Paralympics GB will be in Tokyo without a supporting crowd. We are going to write postcards to send to the athletes to share motivational and encouraging messages with them and to share our support. Either complete the postcard template sent home in your books or create your own postcard design (don’t forget to decorate the front too – maybe in red, white and blue to match our team’s colours). Return your postcard to school and we will make sure that the athletes get to see them!
This week we have been learning to spell the months of the year. Remember to use your neatest handwriting as well as practising the spellings. For an added challenge write each of the words in a sentence.
There are lots of different ways in which you can practise these spellings (see the phonics and spellings sheet sent home last year for some ideas) but the ‘look, cover, write, check’ method works really well.
Please return the homework books to school on Wednesday 7th July 2021
