Your Spelling Rule
This week’s words all use an apostrophe for contraction. An apostrophe is a punctuation mark used in contractions to replace missing letters. The contraction “we’ll” stands for “we will,” with the apostrophe replacing “wi.”.
Your Spelling Words
- He doesn’t like chocolate cake very much.
- I’ve been to the park today.
- I’m looking forward to swimming later.
- A plant can’t survive without water.
- Don’t run in the corridor.
(All children are to learn the spellings above unless personalised spellings are written in their home school diary. Please note children with personalised spellings will be tested and issued new spellings either on Wednesday or Thursday. Personalised spellings may only be issued for a few weeks or longer depending on the needs of individual children – we are aiming to ensure all children are making progress at a level that suits them).
Please learn spellings ready for a test on Thursday 10th October. You will be tested only on the word in bold, but it is helpful to learn them in context.
To help you learn your spellings, we would like you to complete some of the suggested activities that are stuck in your Spelling Homework Book. See how many you can do this week and tick them off the list.
Homework due: Thursday 3rd October
Please use your handwriting homework book to practise your spellings. Put the short date at the top of the page and then write each of the words above or your personalised spellings out 5 times in your neatest joined handwriting.
Handwriting due: Thursday 10th October
Times tables- TT Rockstars
In school next week you will be practising the 4 times tables. The main focus is on increasing your mental recall speed for these times tables facts.
You could also practise at home by logging on to TT Rockstars and earning coins for each times table fact you answer correctly.
You should also ensure you are reading to an adult at home, try to record this in your home school diary at least 3 times a week. Remember 20 reads = a house point!
Home school diaries
Home school diaries should be in school each day as they are often used to share informal messages as well as to record weekly test results and reading with an adult. We would like to remind you to please make sure home school diaries are signed by an adult each week as a way to acknowledge this information is being shared. Teachers will also sign each weekly page on a Friday.
