Term 2 Learning Journey

What are we saving for?

"The earth is a fine place and worth fighting for."

Ernest Hemingway

Key Text

This term, we will be using 'Wilderness Wars' in our English lessons to stimulate a range of written styles and explore Year 3 and Year 4 grammar objectives.

Read the blurb below:

What if nature fights back?

When her father’s construction work takes Em’s family to the uninhabited island of Skelsay, she is excited, but also a little uneasy. Soon Em, and her friend Zac, realise that the setbacks, mishaps and accidents on the island point to something altogether more sinister: the wilderness all around them has declared war.

Danger lurks everywhere. But can Em and Zac persuade the adults to believe it before it’s too late?

Homework

Homework is set every Friday on Google Classroom and will be due in the following Thursday. The homework folder can be found under the 'Classwork' tab.

There are two sheets for homework:

  • Reading record - please record what you have read and how often you have read on the Google Doc. We encourage children to read at least five times a week either independently (aloud or in their head) or aloud with an adult.

  • Activities - there will be spellings to learn and timetables to practise. In addition to this, there will be either a RIC (reading) or SPAG task.

  • Mangahigh - Children to login and complete the Manga High task set by your teacher. They should aim to complete the task three times. The children's logins can be found on their Google Classroom under 'Classwork'.

  • Lexia - if your child has a Lexia account, please ensure they are accessing this regularly at home. Their login can be found on their Google Classroom under 'Classwork'.

Please do let the class teacher know if you require a paper copy.

We ask that you send in a photo of the work instead of a paper copy to reduce the number of items coming into school.
