Newsletter Week 3 2015
Happy New Year to all parents. Thanks very much for the great and thoughtful presents that I received from all of you. I hope we can continue to cooperate as we did last term for the betterment of the childrens` academic work.
English:The children will have group tasks for Matilda of Roahl Dahl. 3 weeks will be allocated for the tasks that they will do. Some children have already finished reading Matilda. A group will work as Fortune Tellers. They will predict what the book would have been and predict a continuation of the book. Detectives would search for all the difficult words, list them and infer their meanings in dictionaries. Reporters will write questions that students can get direct answers from from the book and write questions that require reading between the lines. A final group the Cow Boys will summarize the book. When the project is over we will display the work in the classroom as a poster. Some words will be part of a vocabulary bank we will have in the classroom and some of it will be used for spelling tests.
Mathematics:For mathematics the children are practising how to Multiply by talsoter ( Number Sense) and uppställning. They are to continue with short division. There will be a quiz on Friday week 5.
Homework:Mathematics: Matheborgen page 120-125 due on Friday week 3. Project work from the book Matilda.
Natural Sciences:The children will start will continue to work with properties of matter. There after there will be an Introduction to Technology. We will start defining Technology and tools which are used for Technology.
