"Working hard to achieve our best"

Home Learning - Hawks

This week's Home Learning:

Home learning set 15th September

As we are focusing on our reading at school we would like you to present information on a book you have read and enjoyed recently.

You could create a scene from the story; write a book review; make a model of a character; write a section of the story as a play or maybe design a new front cover with blurb- just be creative.

Please return by Monday 25th September

Reading: In school we regularly talk to your child about their reading and monitor their engagement using our AR system which helps us to ensure that your children are reading regularly at home as well as at school. Please help your child by encouraging them to read quality books and by making time to discuss any unfamiliar words they come across with you. 

Mathletics: Studies have consistently  proved that children who engage regularly with Mathletics do significantly better in their assessments so please take advantage of this wonderful tool. If you encourage your child to complete more tasks and they gain a certificate these will be awarded in our Key Stage Assembly on Thursdays.


Spellings: This week we have 10 spelling to learn taken from topic words/ high frequency word lists and our spelling focus for next week's spelling lessons.
