There is also a science work sheet that you need to download for this lesson! Can I sort Rocks into different categories using a venn or carroll diagram? If you can find rocks and stones in your garden then you can use those but if not then you can use the poster pictures of rocks that are on the powerpoint to look at in order to complete this activity! You could cut and stick them onto the Venn or Carroll diagrams but you need to label them to say why you have sorted them in that way. e.g all of these rocks are smooth and shiny, all of these are sharp and spiky etc...

SPELLINGS for WC 21st Sept  (set 2) are available for you to download from this page or from Class DoJo! There are 16 spellings to practice. The children will be randomly tested on 10 out of those 16 and 2 mystery spellings based on the phonics that they will have been learning in class. They will bring home their spellings to keep at home for practising and there will be extra spelling practice activities that they can do if they want to at home. They will be doing these in school as well. Any children who are on a different set of spellings will be messaged separately through DoJo! (Practise as often as possible)
