Please remember to bring in your PE kit on Monday and keep it in school for the whole week. Please ensure you have named all uniform, PE kit and other school equipment.
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.
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.
For English homework this week (18.10.19) the children will be set a grammar task to complete. This homework should take approximately 30 minutes. If it should take longer, please stop after this time.
In class, we have been looking at the etymology (origins) of words. Whilst reading, choose a few words to look up in a dictionary to find out how they originated. This can be done using an online dictionary if needed. Please also look at both the Yr 3/4 and Yr 5/6 statutory spelling lists to ensure your child knows what each word means and can work towards spelling them. These can be found towards the end of this page.
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.
