Happiness, Perseverance, Success



Spellings - your weekly spelling test will be on Wednesdays.  Lists for the term are available in the Homework section on our class page.  


Reading - we expect you to read daily at home for at least 20 minutes.  This will enable you to develop your reading stamina which is necessary for this key stage.  Please record your reading in Reading records as these will be checked weekly.  There will be a brand new reading challenge for you.  Please contact us if you are not sure what this involves.  


Timestables - by the end of this year you will need to know the following tables with speedy recall: x2 x5, x10, x3, x4, and x8.  TTRockstars is a great way to ensure you learn the facts and can respond to questions under time pressure.  Regular practise each week will help you to achieve this. 


Maths - weekly activities will be set on Sumdog for you to complete.  These will be set on Mondays and your teacher will be monitoring which tasks you have completed.  The expectation is that all activities set are completed within the week.  


Grammar - a grammar homework task will be set each Friday and needs to be completed before the following Friday when you will go through it with your teacher.  This will be in the format of a worksheet so make sure you don't forget to bring it back to school as soon as you have completed it.  Your drawer is an excellent place to keep it safe.
