Each week in school, all children will be taught a new spelling rule and expected to learn 10 new spellings linked to this rule. To accompany this learning in school, your child will receive the following weekly homework:
- A paper sheet with 2 tasks to be completed: look, cover, write, check and an activity such as a cross word.
- Online practise on Spelling Shed
EdShed Web Game - Spelling Shed and MathShed
Each week in school, all children will have a times table that they are working towards learning. These are set on an individual basis. Children are asked to practise these times tables at home and your child has a login for the Times Table Rockstars website to enable them to do this independently.
Jamming will allow you to choose which times table to practice.
Studio allows children to work through levels to achieve 'Rock Status!'
Soundcheck replicates the end of Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) so is great to practice as much as possible!
Children are expected to read at home 5 times a week. If they bring their reading diary to school to be checked, they will be rewarded for their 5 reads with a reading raffle ticket! At the end of every half term, a raffle will be chosen from each class and they will get to choose a prize!
Children will receive maths homework every Friday. This will link to the unit that they are going through in their maths lessons so will help consolidate their learning.
