As the children are now more familiar with Mathletics homework, it is being set more frequently, this is differentiated to match your child’s need. Please note, depending on the focus it can be weekly, this is not always the case, we are encouraging the children to access many of the online activities independently of us.
We are working on Schofield and Simms maths books three times a week, they will be marked Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We will have discussed with you if your child is receiving some different homework to this.
Daily reading at home is strongly recommended, whether this is reading to themselves, an adult or a sibling. Please record what has been read or encourage your child to keep a log in their reading diary.
Children came home with a Mid-Term Reports a couple of weeks ago, we hope both you and your child found this useful and were able to talk about learning targets.
Children will be given a Home Topic book to explore ‘Space-Blast Off!’
Children are aware of our topic format and expectations.
There is a mind map to give guidance about compulsory and optional tasks to complete. We hope the children are as enthusiastic and diligent about this home learning as they have been about previous home learning! We look forward to
sharing and celebrating the learning on a Wednesday each week.
