November learning

Literacy

 

Children will;

Talking and Listening

 

  • Sustain purposeful conversation and reflect on participation and contributions
  • Be aware of different purposes for questioning
  • Use and explore different question types - to clarify, to plan and to set goals
  • Identify some aspects of talk which vary between formal and informal occasions.
  • Consider how working in role helps to aid a performance.

 

Children will;

Text Level Work 

  • Understand the language features and organisation of comics.

(Weeks 1 and 2)

  • Understand the importance of a good opening and compare a number of story openings.
  • Understand the importance of using suitable settings and compare a number of real and fictional story settings.
    (Comics Weeks 1 and 2) Myths and Legends (Weeks 3 and 4)
  • Develop understanding of narrative structure: orientation, build-up, sequence, complication and resolution.
    (Comics Weeks 1 and 2) Myths and Legends (Weeks 3 and 4)
  • Talk about and plan their writing with teacher and/or peers.
     

 

 

Sentence Level Work  

  • Investigate the use of dialogue in narrative. Speech bubbles in comics and speech marks in story writing.
     
  • Develop characterisation by showing the reader what characters say and do and how they feel and react at different points in the story.

 

Children will investigate how dialogue is presented in narrative:

  • collect and classify speech verbs used to introduce and conclude it e.g.: ‘said’, ‘replied’, ‘cried’, ‘enquired’, ‘wondered’ etc.;
  • Investigate adverbs that qualify verbs and end in ly. Show how adverbs can qualify character speech e.g. cried sadly.

 

 

Word Level Work

 

  • Investigate the rules governing pluralisation of nouns, i.e. know when to add ‘s’, ‘ies’, ‘es’ ‘ves’.
  • Investigate cliché phrases used in our everyday language. Know a cliché is a common phrase or an expression which has been used so many times since it first originated that with the changing times and its overuse, it has lost its true meaning. 
  • Investigate meanings and spellings using prefixes.
  • Experiment with the use of onomatopoeia to create sound effects in a comic.
  • Show comprehension of targeted spelling words by completing a range of activities e.g. cross words, word unscramble, cloze procedures, alphabetical order, word meanings, synonyms, antonyms, secret words, changing tenses etc..

 

Numeracy

Pupils will be able to:

  • Add a 2 digit multiple of 10 to a 2 digit number and vice versa, bridging through the hundred  ( 78 + 60,  80+63)
  • Add two 3 digit multiples of 10 without bridging 100 ( 340+ 420)
  • Subtract a 2 digit multiple of 10 from a 3 digit multiple of 10, without bridging the hundred (670 – 40)
  • Subtract a 3 digit multiple of 10 from a 3 digit multiple of 10, without bridging the hundred (560 – 440)
  • Multiply whole numbers by 10, within 10 000

SEESAW

Dear parents/ Queridos pais/ Drodzy Rodzice

If you have 2 or more children, you will have to log off and then log in on the Seesaw app. Each child has a separate code for the seesaw app. Please keep the codes you have been given for each child safe so you can sign in and out for each child.

This is only the case if you have 2 or more children on Seesaw using the same device.

We are sorry for any inconvenience but each child has a separate account for Seesaw as they have different classes. If you would like another copy of the code please do not hesitate to contact me on ymulholland883@c2kni.net or your teachers email address is on their webpage.

Se tem um ou mais filhos, tem que sair de uma conta Seesaw para poder entrar em outra. Cada aluno tem o seu proprio codigo para a sua conta Seesaw. Por favor, guarde os codigos que foram atribuidos aos seus filhos cuidadosamente para poder fazer o login e o logout sempre que necessário.

Este caso aplica-se apenas a quem tem mais que um filho a usar o mesmo dispositivo electronico para a Seesaw.

Pedimos desculpas pela incoveniencia mas cada aluno tem o seu proprio codigo de usuário pois estao em classes diferentes. Se necessita de uma outra copia do codigo, nao hesite em pedir-me atraves do email  ymulholland883@c2kni.net ou atraves do email do professor que está disponivel na nossa página online.

Jesli masz 2 lub wiecej dzieci, musisz sie calkowicie wylogowac, a nastepnie ponownie  zalogowac w aplikacji Seesaw. Kazde dziecko otrzymalo indywidualny  kod do app . Seesaw. Zachowaj kody, ktore otrzymales osobno dla kazdego z dzieci, abys mogl indywidualnie  zalogowac  i wylogowac  kazde z  dziecko  z osobna.

Informacja ta dotyczy rodzicow w  przypadku, gdy masz 2 lub wiecej dzieci  w szkole korzystajacych z app.Seesaw z tego samego urzÄ…dzenia.

Przepraszamy za wszelkie niedogodnosci, ale  kazde dziecko ma oddzielne konto na app. Seesaw, poniewaz uczeszczaja do innej klasy. Jesli chcesz otrzymac kolejna kopie kodu, nie wahaj sie skontaktowac ze mna pod adresem ymulholland883@c2kni.net lub adres e-mail Twojego nauczyciela ktory znajduje sie na  stronie internetowej szkoly.

Kind regards/ Com os melhores comprimentos/ Z powazaniem
