Homework

Homework will be given on Wednesday to be handed in on Monday. There are 2 spelling groups and new spellings will be posted every Wednesday. Children may be retested on Thursday if their score on Monday is below 50%. All children are welcome to attend homework club on Thursdays, at lunchtime.

 

Mathematics

All children have been issued with homework to be completed for Monday. Additionally, learning all times tables will be incredibly useful to all children in all areas of the maths curriculum. There is a wealth of material available online to support with this and often learning these to music or raps can be really powerful and less monotonous. It would be great if all chidren  abcould become confident at recalling answers in and out of order and focus on the times tables they find most challenging. If you know that your child is already confident will all times tables to 12 then checking they are able to recall associated division facts would be a great help.

 

 

Reading at home

It is important for pupils to read regularly, preferably daily. Although they will have plenty of opportunity to read in school it would be helpful for parents to continue to read at home with their child. We have a supply of books in school but would also recommend your child joins the free County Library service. http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/libraries . We also recommend encouraging your child to listen to audiobooks, or reading to them yourself, to develop new vocabulary and pronunciation. 

 

Equipment
