ENGLISH: Homework will vary between grammar/punctuation  (www.studyzone.tv) or a reading comprehension task. 
READING: The children will be awarded reading mile points from 1-4 based on the quality of the text they are reading (according to their    reading ability). If you could support your child by hearing or witnessing them reading and then signing their reading record, this will ensure that they get their points!
SPELLINGS: Rainbow spelling cards will be sent home for the children to learn at their own pace, as well as weekly class spelling rules. Look below for some fun ways to practise spellings:
Rainbow Write – First write each word in pencil. Then trace over each word three times. Each time you trace, you must use a different colour pencil.
Silly Sentences – Write silly sentences using a spelling word in each sentence. Underline your spellings.
Backwards words – Write your spelling words forwards and then backwards. Example: where / erehw
Colourful Words – Write each of your spelling words. Write each letter using a different coloured pencil.
Across and Down – Write each word across and down, sharing the beginning letter.

MATHS HOMEWORK: Check www.mymaths.co.uk weekly for homework. Look below for how you can practise your times tables at home.

The children practise their times tables on a daily basis as we recognise the importance of becoming fluent with our multiplication and division facts. Each week, the children will focus on the facts from a different number and we encourage children to practise becoming fluent in this at home to help them in school. A set of flash cards to test your children will be given out to support their learning at home and hopefully have an impact on their learning at school. Try www.topmarks.co.uk for a range of times table activities.
