Times tables practise books. All children need to complete at least 1 page and return to school on Wednesday (as with weekly homework).
Happy half term! We continue our Spring term with our topic, 'Travel and Transport'. In year 5/6, most of our learning will be based around the novels 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret' and Hansel and Gretel as told by Neil Gaiman. We will be also travelling to Ancient Greece this term and continuing our geography learning too.
This term is incredibly important for our children and their progress towards the end of Key Stage 2 standard. Your help at home is a huge part of their learning. Please ensure you continue to read with your child and help practise their times tables and spellings.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Reading is a vitally important skill for your child to practise regularly. Now we are in Year 5 and 6, the emphasis when reading at home should be on your child's comprehension and understanding of the text. Reading may be from a fiction book, information text, newspaper or a magazine. I am always interested to find out what you have been reading and your recommendations are gratefully recieved as we encourage children to develop their preferences, interests and enthusiasm. Please try to read at home and question your child's understanding at least 3 times a week.
Another vitally important part of our learning in school is the recall of times tables up to 12 x 12, including the related division facts. There is also a list of words which children should be able to spell by the end of year 6 in order to meet the required standard. We aim for children to accurately spell at least 50% of these by the end of year 5 and 100% by the end of year 6. This list will be sent home in September with children's homework books. We would greatly appreciate your help at home with practising these spellings and times tables!
Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar (SPaG), Reading comprehension and Maths homework will be issued weekly on a 3 week rota. Homework will be given on a Friday and expected to be handed back in on the following Wednesday. These will be specific pages to be completed in your child’s own individual work books. Information and extension activities will be posted on the pupils class homework page for reference.
