Home Learning - Hawks

This week's Home Learning:

Home learning set 15 February 2019

This week the children have taken home a arithmetic booklet. The answers are included and the children can complete the work in any way they like. They can do the work in the 30 minutes advised and then check their answers, or could work through in their own time checking as they go. As well as the usual tasks set on Mathletics, the children can access any units they might want to go back over to help build their confidence; Mathletics is an excellent resource, giving instant feedback and support.

Thank you for all the beautiful shelters- they are proudly on display in the atrium.

This week the children will be coming home with 10 spellings which use the same root.  Please help them learn these ready for a check on Friday 1st March.

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.

New tasks are set weekly so always log on and check you account.

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 Table Challenge:

A confident and fast recall of all times table facts up to and including 12 X 12 will help your child immensely this year and in the future. Year 6 have taken home a new times table challenge sheet this week which they will be tested in next Friday. Each week there will be a new X table focus. Next week they will be working on their 3 times facts.
