We have had a very busy week in school, and the children have worked very hard. The homework, which will be published here each week, is set to support the learning in school.
Our first topic is ‘Homes’. The children have looked at different homes, and they have reflected over what makes a house a home. They have identified good things about sharing a home with their family, and they have reflected on times when it can be difficult eg having to tidy up after someone, having to wait to use something.
We have had a brief look at different homes around the world on Dollar Street. Please help your child to access this site. They can choose which countries they would like to explore to see what types of homes are found in these places.
The children have been looking at place value this week. Your child has been given a booklet to estimate positions of numbers on a line. Please talk to your child about how to estimate the position. Finding the number half way along the line is a good way to begin. Please return the booklet to school by Wednesday.
There will be a big focus on recall of times tables this term. We will begin by reinforcing the facts for the 2x, 5x, and 10x tables. Hit the Button is a good game for the children to play to encourage the children to recall the facts at speed.
This week we have been reinforcing words with a silent initial letter k, g and w. Please help your child to learn to read and spell the words on the spelling sheet. Just focus on spelling the most common words if your child is struggling to learn all the words. The spelling sheet the children have been given is homework for the next three weeks.
Have a lovely weekend.
