Spellings Weekly spellings focus on high frequency words as listed in the National Curriculum. Spellings will be given on a Monday and tested the following Monday. The spellings to be learned will be highlighted or written in their diary and then the children will √ the ones they spelled accurately.
Reading Please continue to encourage your child to read at home. In their diary are a list of other activities which will develop your child’s love of reading and the reading experience, try to complete at least 4 of them weekly. We always welcome book reviews and recommendations to encourage other readers in class, book review sheets are available in class. When completed, come and display the review for other children to read.
Grammar Hammer This will be given out on Friday to be completed and returned any day but by the following Friday at the latest. Please encourage your child to complete this homework as it supports the grammar, punctuation and spelling learning, which takes place within the classroom. Your child will complete this task independently on Friday.
Times tables A quick recall of times tables facts are an essential skill to support understanding in mathematics. Encourage your child to practise, as all children in Year 5 need to know and have quick recall of their times tables to 12 x 12 and the related division facts. Please note, all children in Year 4 should have quick recall by the end of year 4. Ten minute times tables check will take place on a Tuesday this term. Your child will bring home the check they are working on in class to complete at home. Practising counting in multiples/times tables whilst walking upstairs is also a great way for your child to practise and learn too!
Maths Skills Check Homework will be given weekly to support and consolidate the learning in class. This is given out on Friday to be completed and returned any day but by the following Friday at the latest. Your child should use the ‘Prompt Sheets’ to support them. They will complete this task independently on Friday. Please note that Year 4 children will still be set Maths Skills Check and Grammar Hammer homework alternate weeks.
PE will be on Tuesday afternoons for the whole class. Year 4 children are swimming on Friday mornings and Year 5 children will be having their second PE session on a Thursday afternoon. Please ensure that your child has both an indoor and outdoor PE kit on these days, as we will be venturing outside as much as we can.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT.
