"Working hard to achieve our best"

Home Learning - Owls

 Home learning :  From now on the spellings and times table tests will be on a Friday.

There is no home learning this week apart from finishing the home learning task set last week (see below).

We have our school trip to Ely Museum on Monday 1st April. We will be leaving school at 8.55am on Monday morning so registration at 8.40 will be very prompt. The children will need a packed lunch, water bottle and a light coat in case it rains. They  should come in school uniform.

We will be back before the end of the school day.


Home learning 22.03.19

In maths lessons we have been learning about fractions. For your home learning I would like you to choose a unit fraction (e.g, ½ , ¼ , ⅛  ) and represent it in at least 5 different ways. You could; write it in words, use a bar model, show its position on a number-line, draw a diagram / picture or show it as part of an amount. You can include photos of things you’ve made demonstrating the fraction - e.g. a lego tower, bracelet of beads etc.

Due in Monday 1st April


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 heir 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 Friday. 


    Times Tables: the   times table 

Please choose the level you feel most comfortable with.

Mild:  The mild questions

will be the  times table out of

order, plus related division facts.









As mild but including

missing number questions.







Spicy: The spicy questions

will also include multiplying  by multiples of 10.





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.
