The next home learning journal project will be set after the Christmas break. 

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.

Please note that where pupils have received a low score the task may be reset so that learning may be consolidated. If you have found a task difficult please ask in school for assistance.


Spellings: There are no new words to learn this week. We will have a test based on a selection of previously learnt words from this half term next Friday (15th December).

Times Tables challenge: This week we are focusing on using and applying the 5 X tables. You will have three levels of challenge to work through. These will include missing number problems and applying their knowledge to facts beyond 12 X

Mild Medium Spicy

Multiplication facts relating to the 5 X tables, for example:

5 X 12=

40 X 5 =

150  =_ X 5  

Division facts relating to the 5 X tables, for example:

25,000 ÷ 5 =

_  =  15,000 ÷ 5

3,535 ÷ 5 =

Creating fractions using the number facts, for example:

1/5 of 15,000 =

2/5 of 15,000 =

_ = 3/5 of 15,000

 Please ask me if you have any questions relating to homelearning or if you need any resources.
