There will be no homework this week and for the rest of the term. If you haven’t already can you please return home reading books tomorrow. Notes will go home today to remind you what the book was called and what week it was taken home.

It was great to see all of the oral presentations arrive this morning. I will be selecting 3 children per day to present. Once your child has presented I will send home their poster/props/usb etc as well as a rubric to let you know how they went.

If your child didn’t bring their presentation today can it please be brought in by the end of the week.

I am looking forward to hearing them all over the next two weeks.


Oral Presentation Homework

Oral Presentation Homework

In weeks 8, 9 and 10 students will be asked to give an oral presentation about significant family events/traditions. You can make your presentation using a prompt such a poster, keynote/powerpoint (on a USB), artefact or costume.

The presentation should include, but is not limited to:

  • The type of event and why you celebrate/commemorate it.
  • Who is involved in the event?
  • Where does it take place?
  • What do you do?
  • Why do you do these things?

Examples (but not exclusively) include Christmas, Birthdays, Religious ceremonies, to Annual Camping Trips.

Please ensure your student is prepared to share by the Mon 27 Nov. All props, notes, posters etc need to be in on this day.

Learning Intention: We are learning to give an oral presentation.

Success Criteria: I can speak clearly and loudly. I look at the audience when speaking. I can speak fluently. I use visuals to help me. I speak for 1-3 minutes.

Home Readers

Friendly reminders will be sent home this afternoon to those who didn’t return their home readers today. If you could return them on Monday morning that would be great.

Week 3 Homework

Homework will be sent home today, Friday 5th May, instead of Monday due to me being away. Reading books have been changed and every child has been given a homework grid and spelling words to take home. If your child forgot their reading folder today they can either keep the same book for another week or bring their folder back Tuesday morning and I will change them throughout the day.
