Week 5 W/C 27.11.17

Greek Play and Week update!

Week 5

This week in maths, we have been learning the 7 times table. We have been looking at converting measurements multiplying and dividing by 100. We are also finding the perimeter of rectangles and rectilinear shapes.

In English, we are looking at play scripts and have been converting short stories into plays.

Greek Play.


The date for our Greek Play is Tuesday 5th December 2017 at 2:45 pm. You are all welcome to bring friends and family members too.

Children in Year 4 will need to bring in their costumes on Friday, the latest.

Please continue to encourage children to learn lines and song lyrics.See lyrics for our songs here... It's all Greek to me, Have you heard the story? and It's all Greek to me.  Also, Ode to the Ancient Greeks Have fun :-)


Children who have been cast as teachers, children and fact readers in the play should be dressed in ancient Greek clothing. A white sheet is a great idea for a toga, with a belt and white t-shirt underneath. 

If your child has been cast as a different character (an animal, monster dinner lady etc) we will give them individual ideas to discuss at home. Here's an idea for a simple Greek child costume.

Simple Top Tip! It's also been suggested as a great idea for costumes to use an old pillowcase as a toga. Dress it with a belt or bright gold or red material.


Our spelling focus, next week, using the purple spelling practice book is Unit 6 'words with the ay sound, spelt eight, ei and ey.'

We will work on a special focus of homophones this week, in class.  Homophones-words which have the same sound but a different meaning.

Orange words

These are the tricky, grotty 'orange words for Term 2.
