"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.

 Home Learning: Friday 7th December

In History we have been looking at timelines in relation to the Ancient Maya. For you home learning please create a timeline of your life. You could include key moments such as when you were born, when you started school, when you moved house, when you went on a special holiday etc.

To be completed by Monday 10th December.

Mathletics: There is no Mathletics set this week.

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. 

Spellings: There are no spellings set this week. Instead we would like you to focus on learning the words for the Christmas carols we will be singing at the Carol Concert.

   Times Tables: there are no times tables set this week.


Please choose the level you feel most comfortable with.

Mild:  The mild questions

will be the   table in order.






Medium: The medium 

questions will be the   times table out of order.






Spicy: The spicy questions

will be out of order and also include missing number questions.






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.
