Homework: Thursday 13th October

  • Continue to learn your times table for the Monday after half-term.
  • Read part/all of your reading book. 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.
  • Thank you for all your factfiles about Tchaikovsky.  Click on the links below and they will take you to 2 versions of The Nutcracker.  Tchaikovsky wrote the music for this famous ballet.  Watch both clips and then let me know via the blog which version you preferred and why.

  • Spellings –: see separate sheet. (If you returned last week’s list to school yesterday, the words you wrote correctly will be ticked.  Those that have a pink highlighter mark beside them are words you did not spell correctly.) These will be tested on the Wednesday after half-term.

    i liked the second one best because it had more detail

      

  2. Amelia at school says:

    I liked the second story of the Nutcracker more than the first version because it is told by a man and I was able to follow the story by reading the words. In the second story I was able to listen to the music more than once because it gave me the option. I also liked the second version because Clara got to keep the Nutcracker doll.

    I’ve done my homework and I liked the second one because it made me laugh.

      

  13. Isaac says:

    I like the second version the most. This is because the soldiers vs the mice was a good battle. The nutcracker broke in half in the second version so he was not damaged as much.
    I enjoyed both of the versions.
