Homework and home learning tasks
In addition to reading at home, in the next couple of weeks your child will receive a spelling sheet focussing on specific word patterns and spelling skills. Your child will need to spend time learning the spelling of these words over the week ready for a spelling test on Fridays. In addition to this, they will also need to write spelling sentences, putting 5 words into a context. This book also needs to be given in on Friday morning. We understand that it is difficult for children to read every night, because of clubs and other commitments. We do recommend that you read with them at least 4 times a week. Their reading will be closely monitored for comprehension of text, not just completion before they move on.
Maths home based tasks will be sent home throughout the year to reinforce specific Maths skills, usually linked to our termly class targets or areas we are exploring in the classroom.
Thank you for your support with these weekly tasks as your help and interest will have a very positive effect on your child’s progress.
If you would like to complete some other Numeracy linked work the following skills are a good place to start:
