The children will be given a different spelling rule to learn each week. Children are expected to learn their set of spellings during the week ready for a spelling test every Friday. Spellings can be accessed via the files on Microsoft Teams.
It is important that children continue to practice their times tables. Children have times table practice in school through Times Table Rock Stars. It is important that children access this at home.
Children are encouraged to read for at least 20 minutes per evening. Children must ensure if they are reading a shorter chapter book, they return their reading book to school on a Friday ready to be changed. Children can also access Read Theory and Lexia at home.
Children have a homework grid which is in their homework book. Children are asked to choose at least one activity each week to complete and bring into school at the designated time. Please help to support your child when completing their homework.
Children also have access to the following sites where homework/tasks will be set:
