Mrs Richmond's Newsletter
MATH: Next week in math we will be wrapping up fractions. During the beginning of the week we will be going over equivalent fractions, fractions on number lines, and fraction word problems. Near the end of the week we will be going over a fraction study guide and then doing the test at the end of the week or early the following week (depending on whether I feel we are ready to do it.)
READING: Next week in reading we will be continuing our poetry unit and delving deeper into understanding poems and answering questions about the structure and meaning.
SCIENCE: We will be starting the 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.
The class are really enjoying our economics unit. They are really taking on board all of the requirements and we're having fun with it.
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 April 15th.
Thank you again for supporting our school.
