Homework

Each week, children will be given a list of spellings to learn plus a task to complete with these words.  They will also be expected to use Spelling Shed to practise these words. There will also be a weekly MyMaths task to complete online.  Some weeks there will also be additional topic homework in order to enhance their learning in areas like art, history or geography. 

Homework will be set every Friday and should be completed and handed in by the following Thursday.

Please support your child in completing homework and returning their homework book on time each week.

Maths:

Children have a 'MyMaths' online homework to complete.  This is set every Friday and children have one week to complete. MyMaths log in letters have been stuck in homework books. 

KIRF stands for Key Instant Recall Facts and the main focus of these is mental calculation. Children have an Autumn term 1 sheet in their homework books with key mental arithmetic facts that they can practice at home and refer to throughout the half term. 

Spelling:

Children have been shown a range of different strategies to practice learning the days of the week, months of the year and numbers to 100 in words. We will also be practising spellings in class. Spelling shed passwords have been given out to children. 

 

Handwriting Practice

We will be having focused handwriting sessions in school to aid the children in their learning of this key skill. Any support you can provide at home is much appreciated.

 

PE

This term, PE will be on Mondays (swimming) and Tuesday (outdoor):

  • On Mondays, please can children come to school in their uniform, and bring their swimming kit & bag.
  • On Tuesdays, please can children come to school in PE kit, in their correct house coloured t-shirt.
