HOMEWORK in Eagles
Children will have two pieces of homework a week – this may be one piece of English and one piece of Maths homework or it may be a task which supports learning in another curriculum area.
Mrs Bass’s homework will be handed out on a Tuesday and will need to be handed in by the following Monday.
Mrs Catt’s homework will be handed out on a Friday and will need to be handed in by the following Thursday.
We would appreciate your support in helping your child to complete their homework. Some homework activities can be completed by your child independently and some are intended to be shared with someone else at home. Homework is consolidation and reinforcement for your child’s learning and also gives you an opportunity to see what your child is doing in class.
It is important that mental maths skills are continually practised in order to increase the speed of your child’s maths problem solving. Please support your child by ensuring they know all their multiplication tables and related division facts to 12 x 12.
In the summer term, the Year 4 children will be taking a new National assessment called the Multiplication Tables Check.
Please continue to read fiction and non-fiction with your child and record comments in their reading record. All reading is positive, including newspapers, magazines and online information. Children should record at least three comments in their reading records a week. Children will also read in school independently, as part of group and in whole class reading sessions therefore they should have their reading book and reading record in school daily.
This term, Eagles will PE on a Wednesday and Thursday.
Please ensure that children have appropriate PE kit in school at all times. Due to health and safety requirements, they must have daps or trainers and the correct clothing. Long hair needs to be tied back and jewellery is not allowed. If children are not suitably dressed, they will not be allowed to join in with the session. Also if your child is unable to do PE for any reason, a letter is required.
MATHS, WRITING and READING Key Skills
At Thrupp, we have generated a list of key skills for each year group. These are objectives from the National Curriculum which we feel are essential for your child to achieve before they are able to move on with their learning.
Below are the Non-Negotiables for Maths, Writing and Reading.
