Home Learning

Reading

Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, five times a week. This is to be recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading has occurred.

Spellings

Spellings will be sent home weekly to be learnt and practiced daily. These will be tested in school on a weekly basis. The words chosen will be suitable for the ability of the child depending on the group that they are in. The children will also be sent home with the 100 word list with the words that they will need to practice.

Maths

Maths homework is now based around each child’s Mental Maths objective. Ask your child what their Mental Maths target is and encourage your child in revising for their next Mental Maths test. Keep supporting your child at home by finding fun ways to learn their new skill, for example use groups of pasta for to make concrete representations of numbers to develop your child’s confidence with their number bonds, or explore using playing cards and play “The Snap” where you have to find two numbers which make the whole. We test children weekly and once they have achieved Gold award (questions out of order and with missing numbers) they receive a certificate in the celebration assembly, and a letter with their next mental maths objective will be sent home. Similarly, when your child reaches Bronze and/ or Silver, your child will receive a slip to celebrate their success so they can move on to practising the next skill. Enjoy practising these Mental Maths’ targets with your children!
