November 18, 2011

There are a few tasks for homework this week. You can choose to do some or all of them!


Firstly there is the whole-school homework for the Christmas fair. See the sheet you have been given for more information.

Secondly, you now have your script and your role for our Christmas play. Please learn your lines and the words of the songs. If your part doesn’t involve learning any lines then please make sure you practise the songs. (There is a link to the script and the songs on the class blog here.)

Thirdly, you will find attached a maths sheet. This is the work based on today’s lesson where we were finding the difference between two dates.

Finally, your spellings for this week are:

earth, heart, beard, fearsome, neighbour, search, year, hour, flour, colour


(I am on training on Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Watts is teaching you on Wednesday so I will see you on Thursday.)

Each of these sheets has eight or ten questions to answer.
