Home Learning - Hawks
This week's Home Learning:
We are currently working through the year 5/6 word list. The pupils have chosen 10 words which they need to learn. They will be tested next Friday. The full list has also come home with your child so that they can look ahead and also look back at other words they may have spelt incorrectly.
our child will bring home one arithmetic booklet instead of the normal Home Learning Journal.
They can complete this in any way they wish.
- They could spend 30 minutes trying to complete as many questions as possible in the time and then spend time looking over the answers and learning from any mistakes (answer sheets are included).
- They could work through the booklet in their own time and concentrate on some areas which they know they find tricky.
- You could work through the book together, checking answers as you go.
Last year the pupils found having examples to work on at home very beneficial, I hope you do too.
Housepoints will be given to anyone who has had a go at home and can show me their booklet- I will return them so that they can be of use to you at home.
Thank you for the great models and research on birds.
Beautiful bird research and models- great work Hawks

Home learning Journal
Thank you for your wonderful fraction games which we shared with the rest of the class.
Having fun and learning at the same time
Thank you for all the wonderful Heart work which we shared with Year 5 and is now on display in the classroom.
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.
Times Tables challenge: Times tables will continue after the Easter Break
Each week will be taking part in a new times table challenge. Each pupil will be given 144 questions based on all times tables up to 12 X 12 to complete in 10 minutes. We will record their score and time each week. This is to ensure that all pupils are fluent in their tables so that they can apply these in their Maths work throughout the week.
I know some of my times tables but I have gaps in my knowledge.
I can answer all the times tables questions, but I am having to work some out which slows me down.
I can recall all times table facts quickly and acurately. I know them all by heart.
Please ask me if you have any questions relating to homelearning or if you need any resources.
