A new battle commenced at 16.30 on Friday 27th March. All Key Stage 2 classes can battle each other and the staff. The battle will run until Friday 3rd April at 16.30. Let's see who our most valuable players are this time and which class will achieve the most correct answers. Good luck!

Important Information



Each child has been given a reading record to take home and bring into school daily with their reading book. We would like children to record the name of the book they are reading, how many pages they have read on a particular date, and a brief comment on how well they read aloud or what they thought of the text/what happened, and to have this signed by an adult daily. We would like children to aim to read for at least 10 minutes, five times a week. There will be whole-school initiatives to encourage children in their reading. We will also be reading our class text daily, giving different members of the class an opportunity to read aloud.


Homework Grid

For each half-termly topic, there is a homework grid for children to select tasks from. This grid will be placed at the bottom of the class page in case a hard copy is lost. These tasks are rated as Bronze, Silver or Gold. House points are awarded for each (Bronze = 1HP, Silver = 2HP, Gold = 3HP) and we encourage the children to complete as many as possible.


Some tasks can be completed in homework books, others need to be presented neatly on plain or lined paper, ready for display in the classroom or in our Year 5/6 corridor. If a task is not fully completed or is not presented to the best of the child's ability, they may be asked to re-do the task. We wish for the children to take pride in the work they do.




English - 

For English homework this week (13.3.2020) the children have been given a comprehension sheet. English homework should take 30 minutes. If it should take longer, please stop after this time. If there are any problems with the homework please talk to your child's teacher. 


Spelling - 


We have now started our weekly spelling dictations which include the Year 5/6 Statutory spelling words. Please continue to learn these words at home. This homework will be more effective if done 'little and often'.


The children have been introduced to the website SpellingFrame - 

This website has a number of games and examples of words which should help your child understand this spelling pattern and help them spell words which follow this rule. Please have a look at the website.




Mathematics homework is set through the Mathletics Website each week (see link below) and will relate to what is being taught in class.  You will need your username and password for this.  If you have lost or cannot remember your login details, please speak to your class teacher. Maths homework should take 30 minutes. If it should take longer, please stop after this time.
