Homework week ending 17.5.19

 

Apologies! - I forgot to hand out the homework sheets on Friday as the end of the day was particularly busy.

Maths

This week we have been working with measures. We have used grams, kilograms, litres and millilitres. Please encourage your child to identify the mass and capacity of items at home. If you have scales, it would be good to for your child to estimate and then check the weight of different items. The more experience they have of estimating, the more accurate the estimates will become. Playing with empty bottles in the bath is also a fun way of reinforcing understanding of capacity.

In school, the children were asked to calculate the difference between estimates and measurements. This is something we covered in detail during the autumn term, but it is clear that many children need more practice with this skill. Your child will be given a sheet on Monday with a variety of calculations to solve. These can be done using an empty number line, counting up in jumps from the smallest number to the largest (e.g. finding the difference between 280 and 430… jump up from 280 to 300, from 300 to 400 and from 400 to 430 and then add the jumps), or by using column subtraction.

Reading

Your child will be given a comprehension from First News to complete. We will go through the comprehension together in school on Friday.

Spelling

Please see the spelling sheet given out a couple of weeks ago for the word list for this week.

Homework week ending 10.5.2019

 

It was lovely to see so many of you at the assembly today. Your children love an audience!

Maths

This week we have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes and symmetry. Your child has been given a booklet to reinforce the learning they have been doing in class.

We have linked our shape learning to our art work by producing pictures in the style of Piet Mondrian. See the photos below of the lovely art work.

Spag.com/ LEXIA

Only 6 children completed the assessments on the Spag.com website which was set earlier this year. Please encourage your child to complete these tests before I close them and set new tests.

A few children have been working with the LEXIA programme in school. If your child has been completing these work tasks, please encourage them to use this website at home for further reinforcement of literacy skills.

Spelling

Next week we will be learning spellings from the second column of the homework sheet sent out last week. Extra practice with these words at home would be beneficial for the children. Revision of words from previous homework sheets would also be useful.

Homework week ending 3.5.2019

 

Maths

Your child has been given a maths work sheet to practise adding near doubles and some children have been given a three-digit column addition sheet to practise these skills. This is revision of work we completed earlier in the year.

Reading

This week, I have chosen a comprehension activity for the reading homework. The articles are taken from First News, a newspaper written for children. We will go through this comprehension together on Thursday.

Spelling

Your child has been given a new spelling list with words we will be learning over the next few weeks. If your child is struggling to learn these words, please just focus on the words they are most likely to use in their own writing.

Maths

This week we have been learning about angles. The children have learned to recognise acute, obtuse and right angles. Your child has been given a sheet to support the learning we have been doing.

Spelling

This week we have been learning spellings from the last two columns on the spelling sheet. A new sheet will be sent out next week.

Reading

As April is National Poetry Month, please encourage your child to read some poems to you and talk about what they like about them.

Homework week ending 18.4.19

The children wrote lovely poems during the holiday, and we are planning to display them in the cloakroom area. If your child hasn't returned their poem yet, there is still time to do so.

To brighten up the display further, it would be lovely if the children could make a spring flower, butterfly, chick or any other spring item to display with the poems. Any size up to about 15cm would be good.

Spelling

This week we have been looking at spellings from the list beginning with basically. Please encourage your child to practise these spellings at home.

Have a lovely Easter break!
