WELL DONE AWARD
Friday 16th February 2018
This weeks Well Done Award goes to:
Will in Hawks
Lizzie in Ospreys
Bella in Eagles
In maths this term we will be focusing on the following areas:
* Fractions and decimals
* Geometry and statistics
We will continue to focus on the ability to calculate mentally and at speed, including times tables. We hope that you will be able to support your child in every day mathematical opportunities and by learning and revising their multiplication and division tables to 12 x 12.
HOME LEARNING TASKS
Maths – Set on a Thursday to be completed and handed in by Tuesday morning. Maths tasks will reinforce or extend class learning of each week.
English – Each child will be given a Home Learning booklet which will include the activities required for each week for each half term. These activities will reinforce the concepts covered during English lessons. The children need to bring their completed weekly task each Friday so they can be reviewed together.
Spellings – The English home learning booklet includes a list of ten words per week taken from the statutory Year 5 and 6 words. It would be very helpful if you could spend 10 or 15 minutes 2 or 3 times a week to focus on these words with your child. The rules and patterns we learn during Read Write Inc. spelling lessons will support the children in learning these words.
HOW YOU CAN HELP AT HOME
* Regular reading – at least three times per week. This could be your child reading to you or to themselves. Discussing what your child has read, making connections with similar texts, discussing preferences and predictions will all support your child in preparation for reading comprehension tests.
* Spellings – take opportunities to discuss spelling patterns, common errors and definitions of words they come across in their reading or in daily life.
* Timestables - Encourage them to practise rapid recall of timetables and related division facts [for example using Times Table Rock Stars].
* Playing games e.g. countdown where children are given a number to make with the four operations. Discussing everyday application of Maths e.g. weight, money, time, spotting Roman Numerals.
