Spellings will be sent out with spelling lists for each week, each term. Spellings will be practiced in spelling lessons each week and it would be beneficial for children to supplement this learning with some practice at home. The children will be taught a range of methods to practice their spellings and some guidance will be sent home to parents/carers to help support them in a fun and engaging way. Spelling Shed is a resource that children can use to practice spellings if a tablet or laptop is available to use at home. Spelling shed details including logins will be sent out this term. Spelling lists will be available to access each week on the spelling shed website through your child's login. A spelling quiz will be completed in class each Friday morning based on the spellings learnt that week.
We would encourage parents/carers to read with your children as often as possible at home. Reading books will be sent home this term along with reading records. Please keep a record of the reading taking place at home as much as you possibly can. Children will either be given a coloured book band level or an Accelerated Reader level which will be in the form of a range of numbers. Children who are on the Accelerated Reader scheme will be able to complete quizzes which assess their comprehension skills each time they complete their book. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to speak with Mr Walsh (Foxes Class Teacher/Year Group Manager) before or after school.
‘MyMaths’ homework, which are website based activities will be set frequently by class teachers. These tasks will be linked to the maths topic covered that week, for those who have access to the internet at home. You will receive a separate letter with more information including your child’s username and password. If you are unable to access the internet at home, please let your child’s class teacher know so they can send alternative work home should you wish.
