HOMEWORK - 4TH NOVEMBER

Some children have been given reading comprehensions to complete.

The reading of the information can be shared with an adult but try to get the children to read as many of the words as possible. The children should be able to read the questions independently and find the answers in the text.

They can either write the answers in their books or highlight the part of the text where the answer can be found.

If your child has not been given a reading comprehension this week then they can create a shape poem about fireworks. A shape poem is where they draw the shape of a firework / fireworks of their choice and write the words around or inside it. The poem can be just words or phrases.

See images below.

Mathematics - see abacus on line

Spelling - igh words

light, sight, bright, night, knight, fight - thank you.

Homework - 16th September 2016

This week the homework is linked to our Big Maths tests which we complete every Monday.

The children will need to learn their tables and understand the symbol - x as multiplication / time / set of.

At the moment lots of children are confusing the symbol with the add symbol +.

Please help your child to understand how to work out the 2 and 10 times tables answer by counting in sets of 2 or 10.

The children need to have rapid recall of these tables.

When they see the question on the test sheet it will look as follows.

3 x 2 =

- I say that I want 3 sets of 2.

We do this in class by finding three fingers and then counting in 2s.
