Homework due 17/10/19

Spellings - For your spellings this week you need to learn the plural endings for different words. Then you can practise adding the correct ending to each of your words.

Remember these rules and then apply them:

  • Most nouns add ‘-s’ in the plural.
  • Nouns ending in a hissing/buzzing/shushing sound add ‘-es’ because it makes

it easier to say.

  • Nouns ending in ‘-y’ change the ‘y’ to ‘i’ and add ‘-es’
  • Several nouns ending in ‘o’ add ‘-es’ (potato), but newer words just add ‘-s’ (radio).

Garden House Hospice Project

Some children in Year 5 have been lucky enough to take part in an exciting community project with the Garden House Hospice in Letchworth. The children visited the hospice for three consecutive Fridays and took part in some really valuable experiences. They were able to meet some wonderful people that visited the hospice for support, interaction and general enjoyment as well as the many amazing people that work and volunteer at the Hospice. Without these incredible people, Garden House Hospice would not be the wonderful place it is. The children were able to learn about all of the amazing work the hospice does as well as build some special friendships with some of the people there. Everyone throuroughly enjoyed the project and we do hopre to be invited back again soon!

                            

                                 

Mini Police Project

Year 5 have been taking part in a mini police project with our local PCSO, Ed. Each week we have been learning about a different topic including antisocial behaviour, online safety, road safety and looking after our community. Ed has brought in some exciting equipment including a bleep test, equipment used in raids and a speed gun which we were able to use to keep an eye on the local traffic!
