10th September 2021
This week is maths homework and it will be consolidating the learning from this week in our lessons. I have also set TT Rockstars up for your child to have a go at if they wish to do so. Year 2s should be more familiar with this, and although we do not cover times tables until the summer term in year 1, we will be doing 10 minutes every Friday afternoon, so the children are welcome to have a go! Your childs TT Rockstars log in is stuck in their yellow reading record.
All children should have a homework folder to keep their work in. I will mark it and return it the next Friday with the new homework.
Everyone will have 5 spellings each week to learn which will be called their 'focus five'. These may be common exception words or words that I have noticed have been spelt incorrectly in their writing. Over the week they will practise them in early morning work, at home and then we will check their spelling on a Friday morning. Every child will have individual spellings to fit their needs each week, so if they do not get a spelling correct one week they will have the same one the next again week- hopefully that makes sense!
If you have any queries please let me know.
