MATH: We will be continuing with time. We have worked on elapsed time so we will review this and move on to finding start and end times in word problems. Our math lessons will be shorter this week due to mClass assessments.
READING: Next week in reading we will be working with selections that will help with stamina. Over the next few weeks we will be working on selections and reviewing them whole class. These will be a variety of fiction, non-fiction, poetry etc. Grades will be given for these selections but we want the children to be able to work on stamina and practice the whole range of skills taught this year.
SCIENCE: We are working on a Human Body unit.
** Homework - Please sign your child's agenda on a daily basis to show that your child has completed that night's homework. I expect homework to be turned in on time. Every Monday we write all the homework in our agenda so we know when it is due in. Also, please try and let your child do the homework by themselves, but then check it over with them. We go through homework every day so the children are aware of how they should answer the questions.

One of the things we recommend it reviewing your child's work in their Wednesday folder. We review some of this work where necessary but do not review everything. You are welcome to keep the work for an extra few days if this is helpful, and then sign and return everything to be filed. Below is a link to all the released items that you can practice with your child.
Reading regularly is also important. Listening to your child read and having a discussion about what they are reading is a great way to get your child thinking about what they are reading.
Thank you so much to everyone who brought them in. The next collection will be May 13th.
Thank you again for supporting our school.
