Summer 2 Week 3 – due in Wednesday 28th June 2017
Reading: You should be reading every day! Please make sure you write a comment in your reading diary. This could be a prediction or summary of what you have read.
This week we have challenged the children with several difficult words, which the children have attempted to use in their writing, but are finding difficult to spell correctly. They are to practise learning the 10 words. They will be tested next week and the results will come home.

tolerant tolerance toleration
Continuing on with the learning from this week, we would like the children to begin to create the people or objects they need within the stop motion animation. The ‘characters’ could be drawn, made from plasticine and molded, use blu-tack or another material you wish. We look forward to seeing your creation!
Some children showed an interest in using plasticine and we have found a recipe that you can follow!
- 1 cup flour.
- 1/4 cup salt.
- 2 sachets cream of tartar.
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil.
- 1 cup water.
(You can then add food dye to each batch if the children what to make it more colourful!)
Put everything on low heat and stir until the mixture thickens. Sprinkle some more flour to take it off the pot and knead it with your hands. Add flour until it stops sticking to your fingers and starts resembling real plasticine (albeit softer). Keep in a box or a plastic bag to prevent it from drying.
Times Tables Homework:
By the end of Year 5 you should have learnt and know all the times tables.
This week you have chosen to learn ____ and _____ in order/out of order/division facts
We would like you to show your learning in any way (some examples could be: as a video on the blog; write the tables out if you’re not confident; create a poster; writing a song or poem). Remember to encourage a family member to test you! You could even complete some multiplication sums using the table you have chosen!
