Homework due Thursday 11th July

We will be continuing to practise grammar rules for the rest of the term.  This week we have been learning some spelling rules.  We have learned that ‘v’ and ‘e’ are best friends at the end of a word and that ‘c’ and ‘e’ together make the ‘s’ sound.

Spellings this week are therefore:

stove, twelve, wave, leave, alive, face, space, sauce, prince, notice

Can you put them into sentences once you have learnt them?

We have been learning about division in Maths.  If I have 20 apples and I need to share them between 5 friends, how many apples will each friend get?

Can you make up your own maths story for division?

Have a lovely weekend!

Hedgehogs will be learning about capacity in maths this week. Today we went outside an used different sized containers and cups to find out how many cups it would take to fill our containers. We worked in house teamsand used our keywords (capacity, full, half full and empty) to investigate our predictions.

The lifecycle of a butterfly 

In English as part of our butterfly topic we have read the story ‘The hungry caterpillar’ and retold the story as a class. We have also been begun learning about the lifecycle of butterflies. We watched a video of the different stages of the lifecycle. Today we ordered the pictures and wrote short snappy sentences about each stage with our learning partner.

Can you remember the other name for a cocoon?
