Monday 22nd February

Good morning and welcome back to school.  I hope you enjoyed a few lie-ins and walks outside, avoiding the rain!   Looking forward to seeing you at our Zoom at 11am today.

Spellings and Handwriting


Our Mondays always start the same:


1. New spellings to copy up and practise your handwriting at the same time. 

2. Then write one sentence using each word in context.

3. Finally ask an adult to test you on the words for 22nd February





Below you will find 2 worksheets on prefixes and suffixes: the first one is easy; just add the correct-sounding prefix.  Copy these into your English books, rather than print the sheet, then you can practise your spelling as well.


The 2nd sheet requires you to draw a table, like my example below and then split the word up into prefix/root word/suffix.


Word Prefix Root Suffix
unguarded un guard ed
misunderstood mis understand  


We continue with revision of topics already covered, using our Maths SATs Question Books.


p23 and p24 Multiples and Factors

p39 Fractions, Decimals and Percentages


Almost as important as doing it, is marking it YOURSELF!!!
