HOMEWORK

Homework is important as it reinforces and challenges pupils’ learning.

 

  • Your child should read every night to an adult and have their reading record signed.
  • Learn their spellings. These can be found in their Home/ School Diary. There is space in their diary to "Look, Cover, Write and Check."
  • Learn their Times Tables and practice mental calculations.

In addition to this, more formal homework will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. If your child's homework is not completed by Wednesday, they will not earn any house points and be given an extension until Friday.  If the homework is not completed by Friday, they will have to complete it during Friday lunchtime.

 

PLEASE ensure your child has their reading book, reading record and Home School Diary EVERY day.

Thank you

 

CHRISTMAS THANKS

A HUGE thank you for all the Christmas cards and gifts - they were all VERY much appreciated.  I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year.  Welcome back - get ready for another busy term!

THIS WEEK'S HOMEWORK (Friday 19th Jan)

English - comprehension - "The fox repaid in his own coins" - see sheet in blue homework book.

 

Creative

Please take a look at the NEW Creative homework grid and see which homework you would like to choose. In St David's,  there will be an automatic 5 house points for every piece of creative homework completed and then an additional number of house points based on the quality of the work.  I wonder how many points you will score for your team...

 

My Maths

Check out My Maths 

If you have any issues gaining access to the internet at home - please ask and you will be able to access a computer at lunchtime. 

This homework is very important and can help you understand things you might not have deeply understood in the lesson.  If you do not do it, you are missing out on a valuable opportunity to practise what you have learned so that you can consolidate your understanding.  PLEASE finish any outstanding homework as soon as possible.

 

Bug Club

Log on to Bug Club.   Your book bag should be up to date - if there is a problem please come and see me. Read as much as you can and remember to answer the questions because I check up to see who is reading and answering correctly!  I have also added more spelling and grammar tasks for you to practice. Don't forget about them - they will really help you with your writing.  Have fun!

Times Tables

The national curriculum states that all children should know their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of year 4.  Please try and practise as much as you can.    
Year 4 should now be secure with x2 x 5 x10 x3 and x4 x 6 and x8
Focus for this term is x7 x9 x11 x12
Year 5 should be secure with ALL times tables. The rest of this term focusing on x11 and x 12. Keep practising if you are not already!
Children will be tested on times tables every week on a Tuesday.
  
                      "Don't practise until you can do it.  Practise until you can't get it wrong!"
Please practise with your child as much as possible.   Knowing their times tables 'unlocks' a lot of mathematics for them that they otherwise cannot access. 
Every time they go upstairs, during the ad breaks, waiting for the bath to run - are all good times to have a quick practise.
