St David's class
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.
PLEASE ensure your child has their reading book, reading record and Home School Diary EVERY day.
Homework Friday 30th June due in Wednesday 5th July
Year 4 and Year 5
ENGLISH: Prefixes - 'dis' and 'mis' worksheets in blue book.
Please take a look at the new Creative homework grid and see which homework you would like to choose. From this term, 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...
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.
Log on to Bug Club. Well done everyone with your reading. You are really starting to make better progress and I am really pleased! I have updated ALL the book bags with your new colour bands. You will have books from your new 'shelf' band and books from your new guided reading colour band. I hope you enjoy the new challenges in your book bags. Remember to answer the questions because I check up to see who is reading and answering correctly! I have also added some new spelling and grammar tasks for you to practise. Don't forget about them - they will really help you with your writing. Have fun!
