This is something some children need to continue to practise. Our mental maths next week will be on the eight times table. There will be a maths homework sheet sent home on Monday 23rd January, this should be completed and returned on Monday 30th January.
In TEFL we have been looking at irregular verbs in the simple past tense. Many verbs in the simple past tense do not end in "ed". For example: I saw the moon, She drank coffee. The children have a sheet to complete on  irregular verbs in the simple past tense. This should be completed and handed in on Thursday 2nd February.

Some maths to practise at home

Maths link

4 times table
Firstly may I take this opportunity of wishing you all a very Happy New Year. Please accept my sincere apologises for not being in school last week, unfortunately my mother in UK was very ill and I needed to be with her whilst she was in the hospital.
Our mental maths test on Thursday 19th January will be making 100. I will say a number e.g. 68 and the children need to write how many more they need to add to 68 to make 100.
Our maths homework is a sheet where they need to partition (spilt) the numbers, as some of the children have forgotten how to do this e.g. 14= 10 and 4, 36=30 and 6, 742=700 and 40 and 2. This should be handed in on Monday 23rd January.

TEFL
In our geography lessons we have been looking at Europe. During the holidays I would like the children to choose one country in Europe which they would like to investigate. I want them to record some facts and information about their chosen country in their TEFL books as we will be using this information on the first week we return to school to create a class display. This work should be completed by Monday 9th January and their TEFL books returned to school on this date.

I will send two reading books home for the holidays so that the children can continue to practise their reading skills.

May I take this opportunity to wish you and all your family a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year. I look forward to seeing all the children in January. Have a great holiday everyone!
