Mathletics

 Mathletics will be available on the website to complete by 20th October.

Please ensure that you are all doing this as it is an important tool to go alongside your maths lessons.

(Also remember to practise your times tables using TTRockstars!)

Topic:

We would like you to write an alternative ending for the Iron Man. What happened after the Iron Man defeated the Space Bat Angel Dragon? What if the Iron man had lost the battle against the Space Bat Angel Dragon? Make sure you include some fronted adverbials and expanded nouns!

 Topic and Mathletics homework due Friday 20th October 2017

 

Spellings:

Our spellings for this week are focusing on the prefixes 'il' and 'ir' added to root words. 

What do you notice about the root words they are added to?

 

illegal*                                                                  irregular*

illegible                                                                 irrelevant

illogical*                                                               irresponsible*

illiterate                                                               irrational

illicit                                                                       irresistible*

 

These spellings will be tested on Monday 16th October.

Can you use the starred words in your writing?

Ways to help remember your spellings:

-Writing them in different ways (fancy letters, different colours for vowels and consonants, letter pyramids)

-Syllables. How many does it break into?

-Smaller words. Is there a smaller word in there you can spell that can help you?

-Ping pong. With another person, each person says the next letter of the word.

-Use it in a sentence. This helps remember the meaning of the word.

* These words are ones that you are more likely to use in your writing so make sure you are confident with these.
