Homework week ending 11.10.19

 

Maths

This week we have been mentally doubling two digit numbers. Your child has been given a sheet which explains the method we have used in school. The aim of the activity is to eventually be able to efficiently double numbers mentally. Please encourage your child to explain their methods to you as they calculate the answers. They can use the example of partitioning to record their working, or they can find another way to record what they have done.

Reading

Please read regularly with your child and continue to return the record book to school on Wednesday for us to monitor what your child is reading.

In ICT the children researched different animals from the rainforest on the following website:

https://ypte.org.uk/factsheets/rainforest-animals/introduction

Please encourage your child to read about other animals on this site which they didn’t get chance to look at. I was very impressed with how well the children could access the information on the site.

Spelling

We have now covered words ending in le, el, il, and al. Please help your child to remember which ending is needed for each word.

Grammar

Your child has been set a task on spag.com to reinforce when to use the article a or an. Please help your child to come up with other examples of when to use a or an. Although this might seem an easy task, children regularly make mistakes when writing. They tend to use a each time. Your child has been given a password for this website. Please keep it safe as we will use the site at other times in the year. If your child used the site last year, the password will be the same.

Reading

Thank you for reminding your child to return their reading record book to school. Please continue to read with your child at home.

In our English lessons we have been using time adverbials (Adverbs of time tell us when an action happened, for how long, and how often) eg later that afternoon, next, suddenly, soon afterwards, moments later, that afternoon. Please encourage your child to look out for these words and phrases as they read.

Spelling

Please help your child to spell the words for week 5 on the new spelling sheet given out this week. We have been working on these words in class. There will be a spelling test of some of the words next week. If your child is struggling to spell all the words, please focus only on the words your child is most likely to need in their independent writing.

Over the next couple of weeks we will look at words ending in el, al, and le. The endings for these words sound the same. The children need to remember which words belong to which list. I asked the children to draw a table with a little bottle and a little apple in the middle. This activity helps to connect words with the same ending. See if your child can come up with ways to remember which ending thewords need.

Please continue to use Spelling Frame at home to support the learning of our weekly spellings.

Have a good weekend,

Maths

In our maths lessons we have been adding two digit numbers using partitioning ( eg 47 becomes 4 tens and 7 ones), regrouping (exchanging ten ones for a 10 stick)  and ‘make ten’ (moving up to the next multiple of 10).  Your child has been given a sheet with calculations on it. Please spend a maximum of 30 minutes on this maths homework.  If your child is struggling, please make a note of this on the work.

Here are examples of how your child could complete the calculation    37 + 28. They all involve partitioning 28 into 2 tens and 8 ones.

If your child has been given different maths homework, please help your child to complete this work instead.

Reading

Thank you for reminding your child to return their reading record book to school. Please continue to read with your child at home. Reading books have been changed where necessary. Please return the reading books to school when your child has finished reading them to keep our stocks at a good level for other children to choose from.

Spelling

Please help your child to spell the common usage words which have been highlighted on the spelling sheet. We have been working on these words in class. If your child has just a few words to learn, please help them to spell the days of the week correctly.

We have used spelling Frame in school to support the learning of our weekly spellings, and the children have enjoyed using the site. Please encourage your child to use the site at home.

Science

If you can, get out and about this weekend and talk trees!

Ask the children if they recognise any of the trees we looked at in school and can remember their names. If there are trees they cannot name look them up and bring an example of their leaf with its written name into school on Monday.

On Monday afternoon we will be looking at seeds and how they are dispersed, so it would be great if the children could collect any examples of seeds and bring them into school to look at and discuss.

Have a good weekend,

Mrs Furniss and Mrs Armstrong

Spelling

We have done some spelling tests this term for the most common words your child is likely to use when writing. Your child has been given a sheet of the words they need to learn. Sometimes, children get into bad habits if they are consistently writing the same words incorrectly. It is important to break these habits before they are too embedded in muscle memory. If your child has many words to learn, please just choose a few to concentrate on each week. We will be practising the words in school too.

Maths

Your child has been given a sheet to reinforce the use of signs for greater than and less than.

Please try some of the games to promote mental calculations from the handout given at the parent information evening. Please call in to collect a booklet of you were unable to attend.

Reading

Please encourage your child to read regularly at home. In addition, please read to your child and discuss the content and vocabulary of the texts.
