The children will be given 10 weekly spellings for the whole term on a sheet, which will need to be practised at home. These are from the National Curriculum list of statutory words. Spellings will be tested each week.
Children are expected to read EVERY night for approximately 20-30 minutes. Further information about how to support your child with reading will be sent out on a separate sheet.
We will be sending home a pack of times tables and divisions. Your child should know which one they are currently working on. These will be tested weekly.
A piece of MyMaths homework will be set every week. This needs to be completed online. Login details will be sent out shortly.
Each term it is expected that the children create a piece of homework linked to their topic. There will be a choice of activities for your child to choose from. This will be to develop skills other than English and maths and should be completed by the end of Term 1. Children will be informed of these choices shortly.

Please Remember…
