Mock Court Case – Parent Quiz

As you may already know, Class 4 are taking part in a Mock Court Case project, which involves competing against teams from other schools to win the case of the disputed phone bill (which will involve a showdown in a real courtroom in November). There are many different aspects to the project (such as gown-making, producing art linked to the project and so on), all of which will be scored and will count towards each teams overall points total, which will in turn decide which two teams go forward to the Grand Final in February.

Points are also awarded for completing the parental quiz, which can be found on the mock court website:

http://www.mockcourt.org.uk/ (you will need to log-in with your child’s details and go to the ‘Parent Area’ to find the quiz.

The more parents complete the quiz, and the more answers they get right, the more points you will contribute to your teams total. You can do the quiz as many times as you like, with the score from your most recent attempt being counted towards the total.

Class 4 – Spelling Homework Activities

Please see below for a list of activities that can be used to practise your spelling homework words:

Spelling Homework

You should try to use at least 3 different activities during the week, and practise your words 3-4 times during the week. Several short sessions spread over the week are usually more effective in helping you to remember than a single longer session.
