Curriculum Focus Spring 2019
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 the meanings of the words. On Tuesday the children complete a handwriting activity. On Thursdays the children can choose from a range of taught techniques to practise their spellings. 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 18/1/19 - Miss Verran’s Maths Class
Children have been given their homework folders this week, they have some division word problems to solve. They should be using chunking or short division (bus stop method).
Also, in preparation for their end of topic test (Thursday 24th January), I have set some Mathletics tasks for them to complete. These have to be completed by Friday 1st February.
Our current topic in Maths is Multiplication and Division (written methods).
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.
