Home Learning - Hawks

This week's Home Learning:


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. We are challenging the class to all get to 20+ minutes reading!

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.

New tasks are set weekly so always log on and check your account. If you do not have access to the internet, please make us aware so we can arrange time in school for pupils to take advantage of this excellent tool. 

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: This week we focused on the rules assosiated with adding -ness to adjectives to turn them into nouns, such as clever- cleverness. 

Over the next few weeks we will be looking at building adjectives from nouns such as bone- bony, grime-grimy terror-terrifying and beauty- beautiful.

We will also be looking at building adverbs such as merry- merrily, happy- happily

See how many you can find and bring them into class.

Times tables Next week the children will be working on facts relating to their 3 x tables. These questions are designed to be undertaken at speed using mental methods of computation. 


Please ask me if you have any questions relating to home learning, or if you need any resources.
