Hello everyone!

We hope you enjoyed your 1st week back at home school after the holidays and are ready for week 4 of home learning.

As usual, we would like you to fill in and sign your reading record, practise your spellings (attached below) and work on your times table recall every day, Monday – Friday. We have also attached a handwriting booklet below so you can keep practising your handwriting.

Reading (see Reading week 4 booklet attached at the bottom of this page)

Monday - look at the picture on Page 1 and answer the ‘Summer Sunset - follow up questions’ on Page 2.

Tuesday - write the definitions for the words on Page 3 - ‘Summer Sunset - vocabulary’. Can you use each of the words in a sentence?

Wednesday - read the phrases on Page 4 ‘Sorting Advertisement vocabulary’. Which phrases would you use in an advert and which would you not?

Thursday/ Friday - complete the reading comprehension on Dinosaurs which is on Pages 5 - 9.

This year, we are taking part in the 'Read it Again' storybook competition online. Some of the school adults have filmed themselves reading the books and now you need to go and watch the videos and vote on your favourite. The videos and the link to the quiz where you can vote is in a folder on the 'Home Learning' tab within 'The Trumpington Federation' at the top of the page (https://www.trumpingtonfederation.co.uk/page/?title=Read+it+Again+Competition&pid=2315).

Please make sure you vote by Saturday 9th May. Then we will count the votes and announce the winning book!

Wednesday - Page 5 - practise adding and subtracting numbers (some of which are negative numbers). Complete the activity before marking your work in a different coloured pencil (answers are on page 6). You can continue to challenge yourself by making up questions to solve which mean that you would have to cross zero on the number line. Can you make up word problems to solve which involve negative numbers, e.g. about temperature?
