Each week the children will be given 5 words to learn.  Spelling test will be on a Monday.  The children will be tested on the 5 spellings they have learnt and 5 random words from the Year 5/6 or Year 3/4 spelling list

Spelling Shed

The children have two lists of words to practise - one is linked to the statatory word list which will be tested on a Monday, the other is linked the spelling string we are learning in class.

A BIG well done to the children who had already started practising their spellings on Spelling Shed.


Creative Homework:

For your creative homework this term, we would like you to travel to space!  Over the next term, we would like to see how creative you could be in recreating space or using your creative skills to explain how something in space works.  This is very open ended and left to your imagination.  You may decide you want to build your own space station, make a model of the planets, create a game with a space theme, create a poster to explain why we have day and night or none of these options - it really is your choice!  Be as imaginative and creative as you can and if you choose to complete this homework - a spaced themed treat will await you!  

These projects are due in by Monday 25th November.

Take your imagination to ‘infinity and beyond.......’
