Home Learning - Owls


Home learning :  

 Home Learning Friday 12th October

We really enjoyed our fantastic visit yesterday from Hotel Chocolat. We have learnt all about designing, making and marketing chocolate bars.

For home learning, I would like you to carry out some research to find out your family and friends' favourite chocolate bar. I would like you to gather your information using a tally chart and present it using a bar graph.

Due date: Monday 29th October

Mathletics:Please login to the system at www.mathletics.co.uk, to access the tasks set for your child. Your child’s personal username and password are stuck into the front of their reading diaries.

Studies have 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 and times tables are set on Fridays. The children will be tested on them the following Thursday. 

Spellings: This week we are continuing to look at verb endings in the past tense. 

hurried, carried, married, worried, cried, dried, tried, emptied, copied, bullied

 Extra challenge: how many other verbs can you find that follow this rule? (e.g. admitted )

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 listening to them read, discussing the stories and by making time to discuss any unfamiliar words they come across with you.
