Read every day for at least 10 minutes. Please remember your child must have their book signed. Every fortnight children are expected to do a book review of a book they have been reading or have read, children can pick these up from the classroom and stick them into their homework books

Lots of parents get a bit fed up of children saying ‘I’m BORED!’ Imagine one day you came home from school and your mum or dad were there saying ‘I’m BORED’!
- What would you say to them?
- Write a short conversation between you and your parent/carer in which the adult is the one who is bored!
- Set your conversation out like a playscript.
You will need a partner to play with, a mug and coins (1p, two 2ps, two 5ps, 10p, 20p, 50p). Put all these coins into a mug.
Recognising the even and odd numbers is crucial – it is surprising how many other numeracy skills depend on this. This activity helps to reinforce this recognition, and also gives practice in adding amounts and coin recognition.
end in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8. Odd amounts end in 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9.
- Agree who will be even amounts and who will be odd amounts.
- Take it in turns to play.
3. Put all the coins in a mug, shake it and tip them out.
- Collect up all those that have landed ‘heads’. Add these coins to give an amount.
- If you are collecting ‘evens’ and this amount is even, you may score this amount.
- If you are collecting ‘odds’ and this amount is odd, you may score this amount.
- If the amount is even, and you are collecting ‘odds’ or the amount is odd and you are collecting ‘evens’ you get no score!
- Continue taking turns until you have had six turns each. 9. Add your scores. Largest score wins the game!
- Play again.

THIS WEEK’S SPELLING PATTERN IS: The suffix –ly starts with a consonant letter, so it is added straight on to most root words. Exceptions:
Spelling group A’s spellings are to reinforce phonics patterns, any word in red does not follow the phonic rule.
