Multiplications: In Maths lessons we will regularly refer to multiplication practise - within our starter, main activities, games and much more across the curriculum, however it is important to learn them at home too! The children have access to Times Tables Rock Stars - which should be completed weekly for their homework.
In school, we complete 12 x 12 multiplication grid in 10 minutes. Children are timed and we record their times and see if they can beat their previous score. If your child can complete in 5 minutes (next challenge up), we give them a jumbled 12 x 12 multiplication grid! Why not have a practice this weekend >
Reading: Children will be encouraged to read at home, three times a week to an adult. This year it is going to be recorded on Class Dojo, on your child's portfolio. Please feel free to just add a post noting how many pages your child has read or even a quick and easy video of them reading.
Spellings: Every week children will be given spellings to learn on spelling shed, these will be set on a Monday. Children will be given the chance to learn the spellings during the week, however it is important that children are practising their spellings at home as well.
PE will be on a Monday and a Friday. On these days your child needs to wear their PE kit to school. Our PE policy states PE kit is the following: a white top, black or navy bottoms, outdoor shoes/plimsolls and a plain jumper/jacket (your child could wear their school jumper). Please be mindful that we are trying to keep the PE kit as plain as possible.
If you have any questions, I am here to help, catch me at the end of the day or message me on Class Dojo.
