Homework: Thursday 27th October

  • Continue to learn your times table for next Monday.
  • Each evening read part/all of your reading book (either to yourself or to an adult) and complete your log YOURSELF. At least once a week remember to ask a grown up to ask you some challenging questions about the part you’ve read and then sign your log. If you have a non-fiction book, you may need to ask your adult some questions too if there are sections that you don’t understand.
  • Listen to the pieces of music from The Nutcracker and decide which one you most enjoyed.
  • Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy
  • Russian Dance
  • Waltz of the Flowers
  • The Nutcracker Overture
  • Use our class blog to let me know your order of preference for these 4 pieces – begin with the one you preferred most.  Give 3 reasons for your 1st choice.
  • Spellings –: see separate sheet. Learn these  words for the Wednesday. (Words on last week’s list that have a pink highlighter mark beside them are words you did not spell correctly.)

      Thank you Rosie for getting this part of your homework tasks finished so speedily. Do remember that you need capital letters to begin proper nouns (names) eg Tchaikovsky, Sugar Plum Fairy and for the personal pronoun I.
      Please let me know the order of the other 3 pieces of music – which you would place 2nd, which one you would put in 3rd place and which was your least favourite (4th place).
