Spelling homework will be handed out on a Friday and the children will be tested on the words the following Friday. A copy of the words can be found on the class page each week.
We have four spellings sessions each week. On Monday we go through the spelling rules and putting the words in context. On Tuesday the children complete a handwriting activity. On Thursdays we complete an editing activity where they have to spot the spelling mistakes in sentences. On Fridays they have a spelling test and they are given new spellings for the following week.

This should be recorded in the children's reading record books (all of which have been given to the children). If your child has misplaced their reading record, reading can be recorded on a piece of paper.
The children are expected to read at home at least 5 times a week. This can be a book from home or their school reading book. Reading record books should be in school every Friday please.The children should hand their reading records to their teacher on a Friday morning where a house point will be awarded if they have read 5 times since the previous Friday.

NEW 15/3/19 - Miss Verran’s Maths Class
I have set the pupils some Mathletics tasks based on their learning on Fractions. These are due to be completed by Friday 15th March.
Pupils homework this week is to have a go at the 'Are you ready?' task for decimals in preparation for their new topic of Decimals. We will start this topic on Monday 18th March.
Our next topic in Maths is Decimals.
In Oak class Maths we complete mini times table tests every Wednesday. The children in this class will know which times table they should focus on each week. However, we do encourage that pupils practise all of their times tables at home every week. They could use worksheets (click for link) to help them practise.
When pupils have correctly answered 20 questions (mixed multiplication and division) in 2 minutes they will move onto the next times table on the ladder.
