Reading: Please continue to encourage your child(ren) to read for pleasure. They should record the reading they do both independently and with an adult in their reading record books. They should do this at least 3 times over a week.
We encourage parents to talk with their child(ren) about the books they have read. Can they summarise what they have read? Can they predict the next event in the book? Can they identify and give reasons for why a character is experiencing certain emotions?
Maths: Please continue to practise times tables either on paper or using TTRS online - they should all have their Times Tables Rock Stars logins. Quick recall of the times tables is an essential skill that is used in a wide range of maths activities.
Spelling: We are no longer doing a ‘test’ of spellings each week - we are now focusing on understanding and developing of vocabulary for our homework task.
We will still be teaching the National Curriculum spelling objectives in class each week.
In their spelling books and attached below, there is a vocabulary activity grid. They should choose and complete at least one of these using the specified number of words for the activity.
This weeks words are: dictionary disastrous embarrass environment equip (–ped, –ment) especially exaggerate excellent
