English, we are focusing this term on our spelling within our work. Where possible can you ask your children to apply their spellings into sentences, this will help them to understand the vocab they are developing and how to construct this word into a sentence that can be later written within their work. We will also have a huge focus on editing and improving our work, the children may be given a sentence for their morning activity and with a green pen are to spot the mistakes within my writing - this can also be done at home to help with further development.
Maths: our focus' this term is place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division (A). We will also be developing their mental arithmetic skills which is how to complete sums in their head with slight jottings.
Please continue to encourage children to learn their timestables. We have been listening to timestable songs through youtube to help us remember. We encourage the children to learn their timestables by saying:
1 x 4 = ?
2 x 4 = ? etc.
Don't move on to develop another times table until your child is confident with both the multiplication and the division facts.
Excellent websites to use to help develop times tables:
Week B: PE with sports coach on Wednesday AM
Swimming: Every Tuesday afternoon. Please make sure your child has taken their earrings out as this is a great help.
Books will be handed out every Friday and we ask that these are returned by Wednesday as this will give us the chance to check their reading activity, change their book and have them ready for Friday. Children on books that are: copper, topaz, ruby or emerald don't need to be changed every week (approx 2-3 weeks).
If I send homework home, this will be sent home on Friday and to be returned by Wednesday again giving us the chance to check it, mark it and have it ready for Friday for the next piece.
