One piece of online maths homework will be given to the children on a Tuesday and expected to be handed in the following Monday. If homework is not handed in, children will miss their playtime to complete it. The website to find this homework is MYMATHS.
Spellings are shown above for each week. Spellings will be tested on Wednesday and the children will have 5 mystery words in the test that follow the same rule they have been learning. I encourage children to research other words that follow the same rule to understand how the spelling rule works.
I would like to reiterate how important it is that children read every day. I expect children to read for at least 20 minutes every day. Within our school day we take time to read each day, however pupils will benefit greatly from daily reading independently or with an adult at home.
Please see below for our Recommended Reading Lists.
Another key area of focus will be developing pupils understanding and fluency in their time tables. By the end of the term it is hoped pupils will have a good grasp and easy recall of the 2 – 12 times tables. Such knowledge supports a wide range of mathematical themes covered in the curriculum, and is invaluable for pupil’s progression. We will focus on developing these skills in class both with math games and our weekly 100 Club challenge, however to support pupils in this regular practice at home will be greatly beneficial.
