### Extra Work.

I have a lot of work cards in my class that the pupils can do as extra work. If your child wants to do these work cards (most of them do) please give them an extra copybook, and cover it in any colour you want (as long as it's not a colour we are already using).
More workcards done, more points!

And...extra work is done for pleasure and satisfaction, not as a punishment :)

### Today's Homework

You have List 7 to study for Thursday (clothes)

Do a few words every day, they are easy :)

(here are some pictures, but you have more on your copybook)

### Araw tistghux tifhmu minn hawn.

Dan hu kif ser naħdmu s-somom il-ġimgħa d-dieħla.

### Homework for the Weekend.

English Comprehension : David's Holiday.

I got the children to underline all the answers from the passage...but they are not numbered, so they will have to use their heads a bit. I wanted to help them a little, since this is a 'harder' comprehension.

Maths Sums.
I only just started these, and I gave only a few sums, because they are quite hard.

8 + 6 =
********         ******
First find the friends of 10
8 + 2 + 4
Then add whatever is left to make 6
******** **  ****
8 and 2 make 10
10 and 4 = 14

( I will post a youtube of the process after school....don't panic!)

### Iċ-Ċawla u l-Volpi.

Illum rajna dan il-filmat ċkejken. Tfejna l-volum u qrajna l-istorja li qegħda fuq Denfil pagna 23.

English handout - Opposites crossword.

Malti Studju : Tinsewx li tridu tistudjaw il-kliem tal- i u ie.

### Solid Shapes.

Here is a good explaination for solid shapes. Solid shapes are not just a Maths thing, they are everywhere around us. Would be good if children learn now to find them in their every day life.

## Thursday, November 12, 2009

### Homework

Is on Maths 1.

Children have to write the shape of the object described.

For example

What shape is a clown's hat?

They Also have a handout called 'Hiding'. They have to work out Ex 1 and 2 on the English Comp copybook.
For exercise 1, they have to fill in with a word from the passage. For exercise 2 they have to copy only the 'true' (good) sentences.

Some children have the book called 'Jolly Hungry Jack' or 'The Enormous Turnip' for reading in their bags. They are to bring the book with them tomorrow.

Malti
Tajthom ħendawt jisimha 'Stedina'. Iridu jaħdmu eż 1 biss, fuq il-pitazz tat-taħriġ.

I'm sure most of the children came home all excited about the interactive software we are using at school.

On the left hand side, there are two boxes for the 'username' and 'password'. Most of the children know how to input these by heart now. I won't publish the username and password (for which the school has paid for) on this blog, for obvious reasons, but you can find them on your children's email address.

Please start from 'reception'. Do not use Year 1 and Year 2 yet.

Thanks and Enjoy!

### Today's Homework.

Children have study list 4 in their English Study copybook. Please study this a little bit every day, that's how you get the best results.

On the Maths squares copybook, they have to draw lines according to the measurments given. This time the lines are vertical.

Children have to get a 1 metre length (not more, not less) of string or ribbon, to use for a measuring exercise.

Way Ahead Workbook, pages 16, 17, 18.

On their Maltese composition they have a few sentences, which they have to copy correctly on a neat piece of paper.

I have a copy of 'L-Aħħar Bidwi f'Wied il-Għasel' on my drive, sung by the children. They will do a performance in front of teachers who are visiting our school for the Comenius project. If you want a copy of this recording, please send the pen-drive to school, so your child can practise over the weekend. Many thanks.

### Measuring.

Here is what we are doing at the moment. It's very important that children learn how to use measuring tools properly.
