  1.  Reading – 5 times for the week. Please make sure this is recorded in your homework book and signed by a parent or guardian.
  2. 100 word challenge. Set yourself a personal goal this week in your writing. Can you incorporate some “show not tell” or some personification. Try to make this a showcase piece!
  3. HotMATHS tasks
  4. Literacy circle work. If you have been absent, please ensure you check in with your group to see how far you should read this week and what role you have been allocated.
  5. Poetry reading – make sure you don’t leave choosing your poem and rehearsing reading aloud until the last minute. Check the timetable for when you are rostered on!

Poetry Sharing

As part of our work on Poetry this term, all students will be sharing a poem aloud with our class.

You are able to choose either a poem you have written, or one you have enjoyed or connected to in some way.

It is expected that you will practise this poem before you present, and that you will choose a poem of an appropriate length. If you are uncertain if your poem is suitable, please check with Libby BEFORE the day you have been allocated.

We are planning to share the poems in our library sessions on Thursdays, however this may need to be adjusted some weeks.
