Spelling – Access https://www.spellingcity.com/users/MrsKHorne, select the correct lists (week 7) use spellingcity’s games to help you learn your words. Each week you are also to learn five words that you have selected yourself with the spelling rule taught on Mondays. These will not be on spelling city. Instead practise the rule making your words using active strategies (writing words on a partners back to guess, make with pasta or play doh, rainbow writing, cheerleading the words etc…). You do not hand evidence of this in to school. It should be short, fun and engaging. You will complete a short dictation which uses words of a similar difficulty, though not the 5 specific words, which follow the spelling rule on Fridays.
Remember to check your dictation for corrections each week!
Numeracy – Sumdog Challenge – This week is the East Renfrewshire Sumdog Challenge. Participants answer as many questions as they can to obtain a score for accurate answers (out of 1000 as this is the maximum).
Accuracy is key! Good Luck!
If you were unable to complete your numeracy graph homework during Halloween Week this should be completed instead of Sumdog. You may chose to then compete in the Sumdog Challenge if you have time.
Other – As discussed in class, research either igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary rock formation. To share this information you can either create a flow chart, cartoon strip or poster with one labelled image. Keep it simple. We will work in groups in Friday’s science lesson to share how each type of rock is formed, and identify their features in rock samples and images.
