Home Learning:   

Home learning set on Thursday 17th November

This week, you have all been carrying out some thorough research into Mayan life, I have been impressed by how enthusiastic you have all been as a result this home-learning was chosen by you! I would like you carry out some extra research at home so that you can; add more details to your information poster and share what you have learnt with the rest of us! You could visit the library or find some other websites (make sure you check they are ok with your parents!) You can record your information however you prefer and bring it in sometime next week to add to your poster.

Key Stage 2 Home Learning

In Key Stage 2 we will be setting home learning tasks each week in reading, spelling and maths. Home learning tasks will be set on Fridays, posted on our class webpage.

Reading: Every day

Spelling: practised as frequently as required

Times Tables: practised as frequently as required

Mathletics: 3 activities a week

I will talk to the children about their ‘home learning’ each week so that they know what they are doing. Some time the activities will be revising a concept, sometimes the activities will be practising something we are currently learning, sometimes the activities will be extending their learning.

Reading: At least 20 minutes a day. We will be regularly talking to your child about their reading and monitoring our AR system to ensure that children are reading regularly at home as well as at school.

 In addition to the books on the AR system your child may read as many books as they wish- the more the better! If your child reads a book from home and would like to do a quiz on it, please send the book into school and we will be very pleased for them to take a quiz. They may also quiz on books that you have read together or books that you have read to them, perhaps for a bedtime story.

Please help your child by encouraging them to read quality books that they enjoy fiction and non-fiction. Also, by making time to discuss the book and any unfamiliar words they come across with you. 

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.

Your child will be set 3 activities every Friday to be completed by the following Thursday
